    Colloidal Oatmeal: Colloidal oatmeal is known for its various moisturising, cleansing, and healing properties for the skin. It also restores the physiological barrier of the skin by replenishing the skin's water and lipid levels, which strengthens the skin's integrity.

    Sodium PCA: A humectant that draws moisture from the air and delivers it to the skin, Sodium Pyrrolidone Carboxylic Acid is a naturally occurring component of our skin that helps maintain a healthy epidermis.

    Glycerin: Another humectant, glycerin is a powerful moisturising agent that provides intense hydration – promoting moisture retention and enhancing the skin's texture and appearance.

    Safflower Oil: A non-comedogenic oil that moisturises without clogging pores, Safflower Oil has anti-inflammatory properties that make it suitable for acne-prone skin.

    Vitamin E: A potent antioxidant that helps protect the skin from free radicals and environmental damage, Vitamin E also aids in skin healing and reduces inflammation.

    How it Works

    Colloidal oatmeal is finely ground oats suspended in a liquid – typically water. It is created by grinding oats into a fine powder, which allows it to disperse easily in liquid and form a colloidal suspension. This colloidal suspension makes it easier for the oatmeal to mix with other substances and adhere to the skin.

    Colloidal oatmeal is known for its various beneficial properties for the skin. It contains a high concentration of starch and beta-glucan, which help hydrate and protect the skin by forming a protective barrier and retaining moisture in the stratum corneum. It restores the physiological barrier of the skin by replenishing the skin's water and lipid levels, which in turn strengthens the skin's integrity.

    Colloidal oatmeal contains several types of phenols, which have antioxidant and anti-inflammatory effects. These properties help to soothe and calm irritated skin. These antioxidants also contain enzymes that promote skin healing.

    Colloidal Oatmeal acts as a cleanser, a moisturiser, and a soothing and protective agent to reduce inflammation and keep skin healthy. Often used to help alleviate and relieve various skin conditions, including dryness, itching, redness and inflammation, it is safe and gentle, making it suitable for use on all skin types, including sensitive skin.

    Perfect for

    Dry & dehydrated skin: Dermavive Dry Skin Cleansing Bar is specifically designed for very dry skin – helping replenish moisture, restore the skin's hydration levels and prevent dryness and flakiness.

    Sensitive skin: The gentle and non-irritating formulation makes our Dry Skin Cleansing Bar suitable for individuals with sensitive skin – cleansing without causing irritation or redness.

    Eczema, dermatitis & psoriasis: The bar’s high concentration of Colloidal Oatmeal helps soothe itchiness, reduce inflammation, and relieve the dryness and scaling associated with atopic and inflammatory skin conditions.

    Itchy, irritated skin: Whether due to environmental factors, allergies or other irritants, Dermavive Dry Skin Cleaning Bar can help calm and soothe itchy, irritated skin – reducing redness and discomfort.

    Normal skin maintenance: Even if you don't have specific dry skin concerns, using Dermavive Dry Skin Cleaning Bar in your skincare routine helps maintain the overall health and hydration of the skin.

    Natalie Hernandez

    The only soap I use its great for dry skin and LADIES its PH balanced so it’s a regular in my routine for that ‘’area’’ specifically! It has brought my PH balance back in order with consistency. Highly recommended.

    Minna Jose

    A great product, the soap does not burn or leave residue, leaves the skin soft and supple, the smell is a good clean smell nothing too overpowering, I use it for all areas specially below the belt (ladies) it helps balance out your Ph levels and cleans everything without any funky leftover perfume smell. Try it you won’t be disappointed!

    Dawn Clark

    I love this soap for my dry sensitive skin. It soothes up everything and it lathers really well. A nice freshy scent which is great for morning face washes too. I like that it’s vitamin E infused. It cleans up well and leaves my previously dry skin smooth and hydrated ??

    Stephanie Rose

    I have a very sensitive skin condition, not many products suit my skin, amongst other things I also suffer from dry skin. I’ve tried numerous soaps specially from big brand names such as dove but nothing has worked as great well as this hidden gem, dermavive is the only one where I don’t show adverse reactions to, it leaves my skin smooth and fresh. Highly recommended!
