In the manufacturing process, the colloidal prodcuing fraction is separated out as a gum substance which is high in vitamin B complex and contains about 10% oat oil.When colloidal oatmeal is mixed with water it forms a milky dispersion which, after bathing, leaves a film on the skin. This has three major benefits for treating Eczema or Chicken Pox.Colloidal Oatmeal has an anti-itch action that eliminates the sensation of itch and reduces scratching. Colloidal Oatmeal has a buffering action which restores the normal pH balance to the skin (pH 5-6). That is, it restores the acid mantle of the skin. (Dry skin and eczema skin is usually mildly alkaline). Colloidal Oatmeal has a cleansing action by absorbing and removing grime from the skin and so avoids the use of harsh alkaline soaps.
