What does this mean?

Inci:Avena Sativa Kernel Oil

A soft oil with a velvety feeling that is excellent for the hair and skin. Moisturises and sinks in easily with no sticky after feel. Nourishing and protective, especially for sensitive skin and baby products.

PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

A clear, bright yellowish to brown oil with a natural oat aroma obtained by pressing the oat kernels.
 
Oats themselves have a very low oil content, often less than 10%. Therefore it is essential that very careful extraction procedures are used to maximise the low oil to mass ratio. So many companies use a high extraction temperature which damages the oil and destroys the therapeutic benefit. Our oat oil has been carefully extracted and then simply filtered. This retains the natural beta glucans and natural tocopherols that make it so beneficial and elegant to use.
  • Use 1% to 100%.
  • Oil soluble so cannot be used in water only products. It can be used in small amounts in water based gels that will hold it in suspension.
  • Heat stable so can be used in Stage 1 (fat stage) when making creams and lotions.
Oat Oil works well with other hair care oils such as Argan Oils and Camellia Oil.
 
Oat Oil is excellent for sensitive skin and baby products when blended with other soft oils like Apricot Kernel Oil and Peach Kernel Oil.
