Colloidal Oat

I’m an especially soothing, calming, protective helper for your skin, especially if it’s a little sensitive.

Technical Term
Avena Sativa (Oat) Kernel Flour
Ingredient Class
Hero Ingredients

Essential actives ingredient in some products

I’m a healing helper for sensitive skin: I help calm irritation and restore its natural moisture barrier.

How I'm made

I’m made from finely ground oats: in Allkinds products, you’ll find me as Colloidal Oat Extract and Colloidal Oat Flour.

How I work

Not to brag, but ’m a bit of a legend: I’ve been used for centuries to soothe and calm heal skin of all kinds. In the U.S., I’m characterized as a ‘skin protectant’ for my restorative powers. Research shows that I contain potent types of healing antioxidants and water-binding beta-glucan & starches, which means I help your skin’s moisture barrier stay strong. I help reduce inflammation to calm things down and restore skin over time, so you feel smooth and fresh.

Need to know

If you’re allergic to oatmeal, you should avoid products that have me in them: and even though you can eat oatmeal for breakfast, you can’t eat the Allkinds stuff I’m in, k?

Where you can find me

I’m Allkinds of all over the place: find me keeping your skin happy across our Totally Clear range.
