Oatveen Skin Protectant Range
Skin Protectant Moisturizing Creams formulated with:
- Colloidal Oatmeal
- Essential Skin Vitamins
Why Colloidal Oatmeal?
Studies have proven the effectiveness of Colloidal Oatmeal in management of various dermatological disorders because of their: Anti-Inflammatory, Anti-irritation, Soothing, Moisturizing, Protecting and Cleansing benefits to the skin.
These benefits are as a result of Colloidal Oatmeal’s wide array of phytochemicals
Itching leads to scratching which causes damage to skin barrier & integrity. This damage creates a feedback loop that increases the release of pro-inflammatory mediators, thus increasing the itching, continuing the cycle.
Avenanthramides (AVAs) are one of the principle antioxidants and anti-inflammatories phytochemicals in Colloidal Oat Meal. Studies have shown that Avenanthramides (AVAs) inhibit the release of pro-inflammatory cytokines and histamine that are crucial to breaking the itch scratch cycle.
Oatveen Skin Protectant Creams also contain Phytoceramides that are skin identical that can easily be incorporated to replenish the low ceramides levels in people with Atopic Eczema.
D-Panthenol is one of the vitamin ingredient in Oatveen. When applied topically, d-panthenol penetrates to the lower layers of the skin where it is absorbed and converted to Vitamin B5.
It’s this penetration that allows essential stratum corneum hydration to maintain skin softness, elasticity while accelerating wound healing and calming effects.
Niacinamide or Vitamin B3

conditions associated with most dry skin conditions.

– To promote normalization of the skin,
– Reduce signs of ageing especially hyperpigmentation & skin roughness.
Alpha-hydroxy acids (Glycolic & Lactic acids) reduce the cohesion between the corneocytes & interfere with the bonding between the cells, which causes an increased cell turnover at lower pH.
Urea is a naturally occurring humectant in human skin and it has also been discovered as a barrier-improving substance. The most well-known dermatologic effects from urea is its ability to unfold, solubilize and/ or denature proteins. High concentrations of urea above 10% in creams targeting severe cases ichthyosis and other yperkeratotic conditions were found to have a pronounced keratolytic effect that made the subjects’ skin soft and pliable.
Salicylic acid is used at low concentrations in the formulation to promote the keratolysis and further strengthen the antimicrobial properties of the cream.
Glycerin ameliorates dry flaky skin by facilitating the digestion of the corneodesmosomes in patients with very dry skin.
