Oat kernel oil is a golden lipid extracted from oats with amazing moisturising and healing properties and a non-greasy finish. It’s a fast-absorbing oil packed with linoleic fatty acid (omega 6), sterols, ceramides and sphingolipids, antioxidants and anti-inflammatory agents.1 Oat kernel oil is non-comedogenic and can even reduce the appearance of papules, blackheads, and lesions, making it a great choice for acne prone skin types.1
Due to the high polar lipid content including ceramides, oat kernel oil acts as an occlusive and a humectant, absorbing and retaining moisture in the skin. Topical oat oil application has been shown to increase ceremide content in skin by up to 70%.2 Oat oil has also shown effectiveness in treating a variety of skin conditions, including skin rashes, erythema, burns, itch, and eczema thanks to its anti-inflammatory abilities.3
