The history of oats in skin care dates back to Ancient Egypt. Oat baths are still used as external treatments for eczema and irritated skin.
They are known to relieve itching, moisturise and protect the skin.
One of the most well-studied active compounds of oat is avenathramides, a group of phenolic alkaloids, which have anti-inflammatory and
anti-itch activities. Oats are also high in β-glucans, which have protective, water-holding and emollient properties.
Oat extracts have been found to diminish pro-inflammatory cytokines in vitro whilst showing significant clinical improvements in skin dryness,
roughness and scaling.
