We use oatmeal extensively in formulations – so we thought you might want to know a few newish sounding facts about them.
Did you know ?
- Oatmeal contains more than 25% protein some of which are close to our natural skin protein structure.
- You can cook oatmeal in a 40 % alcohol solution.
- Oatmeal reacts with peptides and proteins in milk to form a protective layer on top of the acid mantle of our skin.
- Oat powder can be substituted for kaolin to help control sebum production.
