Oats are incredibly nutritious for our bodies and our skin.  Filled with vitamins, minerals, and a high concentration of colloidal and anti-inflammatory compounds, oats are well-known for treating eczema, acne, and other skin irritations.  Colloids in the oats act as a very mild surfactant to wash dirt away gently. For people with particularly sensitive skin, this extra-mild face wash is for you!
