INCI: Avena sativa (Oak milk)
Oat milk is recommendable to formulate skin conditioning cosmetic products.
Hair conditioning activity
Conditioning agents are expected to provide smoothness and shine to the hair, facilitate combing and reduce static electricity. Proteins protect the hair from environmental damage, repair and condition it, increase elasticity and reduce the risk of breakage. Therefore, oat milk is recommended to formulate cosmetic products with hair conditioning and repairing activity.
Cell regeneration stimulating activity
This activity is due to the carbohydrates content of oat milk, remarkably including -glucans. These are compounds of the oligosaccharide type, which activate the non-specific immune system; namely they activate the Langerhans cells at the dermal level and consequently, boost the production of cytokines. Cytokines first eliminate rests of dead cells or substances foreign to the organism and subsequently activate cell regeneration factors, which repair the vascular system and consequently increase oxygen supply to the tissues. Then, they activate factors involved in the synthesis of collagen and elastin. Cell regeneration and consequent stimulation of this system occurs, which result in an anti-aging action. Such cell regeneration action is also useful in anti-acne and anti-irritation treatments. It is also helpful to formulate products for sensitive and/or irritated skin.
