Avena sativa (Oat) Kernel Extract
What is Oat Kernel Extract?
Help protect and renew your skin’s lipid barrier with this unique and powerful oat active. Extracted from oat kernel, this amazing ingredient is a complex of skin-identical lipids that helps prevent the loss of skin elasticity and assists with the signs of ageing. It has a fast absorption rate, delivering key actives to the skin, and resulting in a non-greasy feeling.
Much more powerful than oat oil, this oat kernel extract is a super concentrated form of oat oil. Honey-like in texture, this powerful ingredient is the product your skin has been waiting for.
Cannot be added to oil-only products as it may sink to the bottom. We'd recommend our Oat Lipid Oil instead.
