Meet the skin-nourishing SPLASHY SAND ingredient: Colloidal Oatmeal

As parents, we're always on the lookout for ways to nurture and protect our children's delicate skin. Colloidal oatmeal is an itchy-kiddo favorite! In the pursuit of natural remedies, colloidal oatmeal has emerged as a hero ingredient in skincare, renowned for its soothing and nourishing properties. In this blog, we'll delve into the skin benefits of colloidal oatmeal and how incorporating it into your child's bath routine can promote healthier, happier skin.

Here are our 4 favorite benefits of our Colloidal Oatmeal packed SPLASHY SAND formulation.

1. Soothes and Calms Irritated Skin

Colloidal oatmeal is finely ground oats that have been boiled down and processed into a fine powder. It contains compounds called phenols and avenanthramides, which have anti-inflammatory properties. When added to bathwater, colloidal oatmeal forms a protective barrier on the skin, soothing irritation caused by conditions like eczema, rashes, and insect bites. It helps to reduce redness, itching, and discomfort, providing instant relief for your child's delicate skin.

We use organic whole oats in our colloidal product.

2. Hydrates and Moisturizes Dry Skin

One of the key benefits of colloidal oatmeal is its ability to lock in moisture and hydrate the skin. It contains beta-glucans, which attract moisture to the skin and form a protective film that prevents water loss. Bathing with colloidal oatmeal helps to replenish the skin's natural moisture barrier, leaving it feeling soft, smooth, and supple. This is particularly beneficial for children with dry or dehydrated skin, as it helps to relieve itchiness and prevent further moisture loss.

3. Cleanses Gently

Colloidal oatmeal has natural cleansing properties that help to remove dirt, oil, and impurities from the skin's surface without stripping away its natural oils. It contains saponins, which act as gentle surfactants, effectively cleansing the skin without causing irritation. Bathing with colloidal oatmeal can help to keep your child's skin clean and fresh, while also maintaining its natural pH balance.


4. Protects against environmental stressors

The antioxidants present in colloidal oatmeal help to protect the skin against environmental stressors such as pollution, UV radiation, and harsh weather conditions. They neutralize free radicals and reduce oxidative damage, helping to maintain the skin's overall health and vitality. Incorporating colloidal oatmeal into your child's bath routine can help fortify their skin's defenses and keep it looking radiant and youthful.

Colloidal oatmeal is a natural powerhouse ingredient that offers a multitude of benefits for your child's skin. From soothing irritation and moisturizing dryness to cleansing gently and protecting against environmental stressors, colloidal oatmeal is a versatile solution for promoting healthier, happier skin. So why not incorporate colloidal oatmeal into your child's bath routine with SPLASHY SAND and let their skin reap the nourishing benefits of this gentle yet effective ingredient?
