With its soothing properties and rich silica content, Oat Straw Powder makes an excellent addition to both hair and skin products. When used in shampoos, hair conditioners, rinses, and hair masks, Oat Straw imparts a softness and shine that your hair will love. It can also soothe itchy or irritated scalps. In skin care products, Oat Straw acts as a calming agent, making it great for sensitive skin formulations.
When infused into water or oil, Oat Straw Powder releases a deep green color into the infusion. It is so potent, that it can even be used to color both melt & pour and cold or hot process soaps. The Powdered Herb is great for creating oil or water infusions, bath teas, hair masks, or facials. Oat Straw is also available as a Powdered Extract. The water dispersible extract can be used to impart Oat Straw properties into almost any water based formula. It works very well in shampoos, skin creams, lotions, and conditioners. Oat Straw Powdered Extract will not, however, add any noticeable color to a formula.
