Ingredient details

Avena sativa or oats are a major species of domesticated cereal grain cultivated globally for their seeds. Harvested grains are dehusked and then flaked or milled into meal, bran or flour. Oatmeal is typically used to make porridge, while oat flour can be made into cake or breads. Oats have also been traditionally used for medicinal purposes, including topically to soothe skin conditions. In soaps, oats can serve as a gentle exfoliant.
