Roll oat the red carpet for the superstars of skincare: Colloidal Oatmeal and Oat Oil! 🌟🌾 At Childs Farm, we're not just about oats in your breakfast bowl; we're big on oats in your skincare routine too! Our OatDerma range is bursting with oat-standing ingredients, and here's the scoop on why they're the bee's knees in skin love.

What's the Buzz About Colloidal Oatmeal?

Colloidal oatmeal isn't your regular porridge oats! It's a special kind of oat flour from the whole oat kernel, including the bran, which is like a treasure chest of skin-loving goodies. It's a pH-balanced hero that keeps the skin's natural balance in check while being super kind to sensitive skin. It's like a soft, soothing blanket for those days when skin feels a bit dry and grumpy.

Oat Oil - Not Just a Fairytale!

Yes, our oat friends can make oil too! Oat oil, or Avena Sativa oil for the fancy among us, is like a natural cuddle for your skin. It's packed with natural ceramides and lipids, similar to those in your skin, meaning it fills in the teeny gaps in skin cells to help keep moisture from waving goodbye. Plus, our oat oil is a zero waste champion – sourced sustainably and a by-product of the food industry.

Colloidal Oatmeal Benefits: A Superfood for Skin!

Think of colloidal oatmeal as a skin superfood. It's got avenanthramide, a natural compound that’s almost exclusively found in oats – this little gem is all about calming irritation and reducing redness, perfect for when skin needs a tender touch. Plus, it's got beta-glucan, a natural sugar, which is like a hydration superhero, and the oats' oils and lipids are the guardians of skin's moisture fortress.

Oat Oil: A Non-Greasy Wonder!

Oat oil is the skincare equivalent of a no-mess playtime. It’s a non-greasy oil that sinks into the skin. Rich in Vitamin E and ceramides, it’s all about keeping skin happily moisturised and helping it hold onto that hydration like your little one’s favourite teddy bear.

Sustainability? Oat-Of-This-World!

Our oats are more than just ingredients; they're a sustainable love story. Sourced from the rugged landscapes of Scandinavia, these oats are like little warriors, thriving in harsh conditions to bring us top-notch skincare benefits.

OatDerma: The Dynamic Duo in Action!

Our OatDerma range is where these oat-credible ingredients shine! They team up to bring you a moisturiser that nourishes without the grease factor, and body wash and bubble bath that gently cleans without stripping away your skin's happy vibes. It's a skincare dream team!
