Oat Beta-Glucan is extremely valuable for skin care. It is an effective ingredient for cleansing, anti-wrinkle, wound healing, antioxidant activity, and moisturizing. It is excellent as a skin-soothing agent and for reducing the signs of redness and other forms of skin sensitivity. The cleansing function of oat is mostly because of its saponins content. Its many functional properties enable oat to act as a cleanser, moisturizer, buffer, as well as a soothing and protective anti-inflammatory agent.
