Colloidal oatmeal is an all-natural skin soothing solution for eczema, bug bites, sunburns, poison ivy and other itchy and other inflamed skin conditions. When applied topically, colloidal oatmeal works by attracting moisture to the skin and locking it in by forming a protective barrier.Linoleic acid
In skin care, linoleic acid provides anti-inflammatory, moisturizing and healing support. It also helps fight acne, softens the skin, and keeps it supple and youthful. Linoleic acid also helps facilitate the penetration of other active ingredients such as antioxidants, because of its ability to permeate the skin barrier.
Sodium PCA is the sodium salt of pyroglutamic acid (also known as PCA). PCA is a naturally occurring component of human skin and a part of the "NATURAL MOISTURIZING FACTORS" (NMF) that maintain a healthy epidermis. Sodium PCA is very hygroscopic, attracting moisture from the air. It imparts a moist feeling to the skin.
