Cocoa & Oats 5oz.
Just as the antioxidants help stop the premature breakdown of cells in plants, it does the same for your skin. The use of raw cocoa on the skin, like in our handcrafted soap help to protect skin from free radicals and help combat acne. These properties help to soften, clear and detoxify your skin. It can also increase the elasticity of your skin, which helps with fine lines, wrinkles and reduces the appearance of scars.
Oats contain polysaccharides, which have a gel-like texture when combined with moisture. This light gel leaves a protective layer over the skin that seals in skin’s natural moisture while also providing additional nutrients. For many with sensitive skin, the skin barrier function may be compromised, and a layer of Colloidal Oatmeal acts like a protective, second skin. The proteins in oats also improve the skin barrier’s functionality by increasing the production of filaggrin, an essential building block of the skin barrier’s function.
The protective layer Colloidal Oatmeal imparts over the skin’s surface helps retain its natural moisture, while other actives help replenish moisture levels. The starches in oats are able to absorb water and bind it to the skin.
