Oat flour is finely ground oatmeal. We use oat flour in place of oatmeal when we are looking for the benefits of oats with a gentler texture. Oatmeal has long been used to soften and soothe sensitive or irritated skin. Ground oats have been used in beauty bars for centuries as a gentle exfoliant that removes dead cells and stimulates circulation to maintain healthy, beautiful skin.
Oatmeal is a soothing, anti-inflammatory grain that helps calm dry, inflamed, and sensitive skin and helps with the painful itching associated with eczema and minor skin irritations.
Finely ground oatmeal binds moisturizing emollients to your skin which helps dry skin. Many of you may remember using an oatmeal and baking soda bath to help relieve the itching of chickenpox! Oatmeal provides a wonderful texture, color, and scent to the soap naturally.
We source our USDA-certified Organic oats locally from Stutzman Farms, an Amish farm where our oats are milled in a traditional fashion.
