    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 various 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.

    One of my main goals when I was buying this is to get rid of that annoying shiny look on my face that always seems to be there no matter how many times I wash my face, my face always appears oily throughout the day so I bought this facial cleanser bar to try out. To cut the story short, if you have oily skin and want a solution I have yet to find a product that works better than this at any price point! And that’s saying something!

    Suzanne Patel

    This bar is gentle and wont over dry the skin but its strong enough for a proper cleanse that rids any excess oils on the skin. It will strip your face from oils and gives a tight feeling finish. Its good to pair this up with their mosturiser I purchase both for my routine and I’d recommend this for anyone suffering from excessive oily skin.

    Mary Lyons

    I have very oily skin specially around the nose area and forehead, washing my face with this cleanser bar makes it feel very clean without being overly stripped, I use it twice a day and it has worked great for me it almost has a cooling effect. I’m gonna continue buying this product and I highly recommend it.

    Becky Edwards

    Best product I’ve tried in a while, I don’t leave reviews often but I felt obliged, I really feel like it does a good job getting my face clear and removing dirt and makeup without drying my face completely. I typically have very oily skin and this does a wonderful job in removing the oil. J

    Suzanne Turner

    I suffer from bad acne that breaks out once a month which makes my face super oily, using regular bar soap did not solve the issue as it would still be oily, I was getting sick and tired of it. After buying this soap bar I chose to use it for a good month religiously before deciding if it works or not, I can honestly say it makes a huge difference! I know everyone’s skin is different so you just have to try and see if it works for you, it did for me :)
