Colloidal Oatmeal is generally used in the bath as an additive to bath water, which moisturizes dry and problem skin, especially dry skin in children. This Colloidal Oatmeal is GMO-free and consists of key components such as beta glucan and avenanthramides, which acts as a natural, deep penetrating moisturizer that reduce the itching caused by dry skin.
The mucilage is gentle, and contains oil from the oat's germ. Because it is so gentle, up to 1 tablespoon in a baby's bath, to ½ cup in an adult's bath may be dispersed by adding it under the running tap.
Solubility: This is a USP pharmaceutical grade of superfine oat flour (200 mesh) which dissolves in water.
Shelf Life: Colloidal oatmeal has a shelf life of add 1 to 2 years with proper storage (store in well closed container away from moisture). Any unused product should be kept sealed in the original container to avoid contamination.

Rating: One of my all-time favourite raw materials. I use it in my creams, bath salts and CP soaps with great results! So soothing to the skin and dissolves nicely in water.

Rating: Love it! The most popular oatmeal brand beauty products out there are Aveno...and it sells very well. I remember in the 80's all they had was a bar of soap...that's it. Now they have a whole product line. They are onto something me thinks ;)
As for me, yes of course it's wonderful in baths, that's a given. I too put it in my bath bombs as others have testified. Yep, great in cp soap too. But where I really love this stuff is in my face cream and foot cream. Since I started using a tbsp of this in my night cream formula, my skin is soft, balanced (I used to have combo skin) and it really helped to clear up my rosacea! And it's an awesome addition to foot cream in a greater quantity (until you can really feel it in the cream) I brought this too my family Dr. and she absolutely went crazy for it. She had been using an expensive foot cream for her dry cracked heels and now she uses mine! Really happy to see this is a NON-GMO product too. Thanks NDA xoxo
Rating: I love how smooth and how easily I can blend this into goats milk soap , bath bombs or just sprinkling it into the tub well worth the cost

Rating: Mixed with milk powder, this makes the most soothing bath for sensitive skin! I also mix some into almost all of my CP soaps with great results.

Rating: I love this stuff. I use it in my foot baths, and I also mix this in a small mason jar with flax seed oil and melted cocoa butter and slather it all over my eczema, and later showering in cool water. It really soothes and calms down the itching. I can't wait to try it in CP soap.
Rating: i use this in my cp soap and it works great for sensitive skin! :)

Rating: I LOVE this product. Though it maybe a little pricey, its so worth it. It's one of the key ingredients in my bath bombs. Great for sensitve skin!
By:Dina, Welland, Ontario Top ReviewerDate: Loyal Customer Since: 10-Jan-2012
Rating: I found it a little bit more difficult to deal with when putting in lotion or cream. I got residues sunk at the bottom of the bottle. Unlike what it described as "dissolved in water". I tried to dissolve it water by itself. without mixing with any other things. It didn't work too well either.

Rating: Another wonderful product. In the bath, it really softens the skin and helps against rashes. I bought 200 grams but will buy more and use it in soaps, bath and whipped butters. Worth the try with oat oil for a very soft body care.

Rating: You can't go wrong! It mixes well into soaps, bath powders and bath bombs. The container will last a while too since a little goes a long way.
