Since the Roman Empire oatmeal has been a go-to remedy for dry and itching skin. More recently it has been found to provide great relief for sufferers of chickenpox, poison ivy, insect bites, atopic dermatitis, and contact dermatitis.
Our Oatmeal Skin Nutrition Body Soap is loaded with certified organic oats that have been turned into microscopic particles (colloidal) so that the skin can get full, quick access to numerous anti-itch and anti-inflammatory ingredients. We also infuse the Oatmeal Body Bar with New Harmony Soap’s special blend of botanical extracts & vitamins to support optimal skin health.
Studies show colloidal oatmeal binds to the skin and provides a protective barrier against irritants. It contains water-binding polysaccharides and hydrocolloids that hold moisture against the skin. The fats contained in oatmeal add to its emollient activity, which helps itchy skin. Oatmeal acts as a buffering agent that can help maintain the skin’s normal pH.
