Although oats are synonymous with porridge, the straw left over when the oats has been harvested have been used for medicinal purposes centuries. Oat straw contains a high content of iron, manganese, zinc, chromium, magnesium, potassium, phosphorus, niacin and a variety of other nutrients and saponins, alkaloids such as avenine, trigoneline, sterols, flavanoids, and calcium.
Oat Pure Straw is rich in silica and is used in skin care products as a skin softening agent. It reduces skin irritation and itchiness.
Oat grain is a vulnerary (promotes wound healing) and thus very popular in commercial cosmetic preparations such as exfoliating body washes or soothing bath gels. When used in hair care products, Oat Straw imparts softness and shine to the hair.
