Oatmeal for your skin
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.
