Oat­meal for your skin

The Star Malaysia - Star2 - - STAR SPECIAL -

HOW did oat­meal be­come an es­sen­tial el­e­ment for skin­care so­lu­tions? We usu­ally see oat­meal as a pop­u­lar break­fast choice, but do you know that oat­meal has long been favoured in skin­care prod­ucts for its sooth­ing and heal­ing prop­er­ties?

Na­tive to southern Europe and east­ern Asia, oat­meal has been used for cen­turies as a sooth­ing agent to re­lieve itch and ir­ri­ta­tion.

As early as 2,000 BC, the Ara­bi­ans and Egyp­tians used oats to beau­tify their skin while the an­cient Greeks and Ro­mans doc­u­mented their use of “oat bath” to heal skin ail­ments.

Be­fore you de­cide to take a bath with your morn­ing ce­real, think again. There are var­i­ous types of oat­meal and the ideal type for pro­mot­ing healthy skin­care is known as col­loidal oat­meal.

Der­maVeen prod­ucts con­tain nat­u­ral col­loidal oat­meal, which is clin­i­cally proven to pro­vide anti-itch and anti-ir­ri­ta­tion benefits while sooth­ing and pro­tect­ing the skin.

Col­loidal oat­meal nat­u­rally cleanses and mois­turises. It has anti-itch­ing prop­er­ties and soothes and soft­ens.

Der­maVeen com­bines science and na­ture to re­lieve dry and sen­si­tive skin.

Dry, itchy, sen­si­tive and chronic skin con­di­tions such as eczema and pso­ri­a­sis can cause great dis­com­fort. To min­imise ir­ri­ta­tion and flare-ups, it is im­por­tant to main­tain mois­ture bal­ance within the skin and pro­tect its lipid bar­rier with gen­tle, nat­u­ral-based in­gre­di­ents such as those found in Der­maVeen.

This can be achieved through a good cleans­ing and mois­tur­is­ing regime:

> Der­maVeen Every­day Soap Free Wash pH5.5 has a gen­tle cleans­ing ac­tion that re­stores the skin’s nat­u­ral pH level.

> Der­maVeen Every­day Mois­tur­is­ing Lo­tion locks in mois­ture to soothe and pro­vide hy­drat­ing pro­tec­tion for the skin.

> Der­maVeen Shower and Bath Oil is ideal to be used at the first stage of an eczema flare-up. It is an in­tense mois­tur­is­ing cleanser for dry or sen­si­tive skin.

> Der­maVeen Sham­poo and Con­di­tioner com­ple­ment the use of other Der­maVeen prod­ucts to main­tain a healthy scalp.

Der­maVeen is non-come­do­genic and is free from paraben, dye and fra­grance, mak­ing it skin-friendly. With a wide va­ri­ety of prod­ucts such as cleansers, mois­turis­ers, sham­poo and con­di­tion­ers, the Aus­tralian-made Der­maVeen range is flex­i­ble enough to take care of your dif­fer­ent skin­care needs.

Der­maVeen is gen­tle enough to be used on ba­bies and ef­fec­tive enough for adults.
