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.
