Aveeno products contain colloidal oatmeal, which is a very finely ground oatmeal.
Oatmeal has been used as a skin cleanser and dermatological treatment since ancient times, as some believe that is has cleansing properties that can also help to moisturise the skin.
Some even believe that oatmeal has anti-inflammatory properties, which is ideal for skin that’s affected by eczema or other dry skin conditions.
Oatmeal was often used as a home remedy relieve skin irritation and itching from poison ivy or insect bites, with many swearing that oatmeal baths could help to soothe symptoms of dry skin conditions.
The scientists at Aveeno take pride in creating products that use oatmeal’s natural properties, and Aveeno products contain both naturally active colloidal oatmeal and/or oat extracts to this day.
Aveeno uses colloidal oatmeal to care for your skin in 5 different ways:
Some Aveeno products work as emollients, including the Aveeno Dermexa emollients and the Baby Soothing Relief emollients.
Emollients work by forming a protective barrier over the skin, locking moisture in and keeping irritants out.
This helps to not only hydrate your dry skin, but protect it from detergents, soaps, and other irritants that can aggravate dry skin conditions like eczema or dermatitis.
Aveeno products are not tested on animals except in the few countries that legally require animal testing.
Animal testing for cosmetics is currently banned in the UK and across Europe.
There are lots of reasons why you might have dry skin.
Some people have dry skin due to skin conditions such as eczema, psoriasis, dermatitis, and more, but others find that their environment affects their skin.
For example, if you work in a profession where you have to wash or scrub your hand regularly, this can dry out your skin.
Your skin can also become irritated by soaps, detergents, sanitisers, and other cleaning agents.
Other reasons why your skin can become dry or flaky can include hormonal changes and taking long, hot baths or showers.
