Colloidal Oatmeal: This micro-fine, ground oatmeal is not rough or abrasive. In lotion it can create a barrier over the skin making it a great additive for those with extra dry skin. In soap it is often used to alleviate itchiness. Colloidal Oatmeal makes a soothing addition to your favorite recipes. This product is excellent in face masks, milk baths, soap, and creams. Usage rate varies depending on the product. Soap recommended usage rate is up to 5%, milk bath, up to 50%, masks, up to 25% and creams up to 1%.

made my lotion (which ended up seperated because of the optiphen) to silky and so moisturizing! It is not grainy at all which is what i feared, this stuff is as fine and arrowroot powder or a clay. So silky, if my batch of lotion hadn't been ruined by the optiphen this would have been the best lotion ever, and i belive it is because of this stuff!
I have used this in CP, emulsified scrubs and lotion and it adds a luxurious texture and leaves the skin feeling great! The first time I used this in CP I accidentally used too much but it turned out awesome! It did have a bit of a texture to the bar (I added an ounce to ~ 2 lbs) but it is only noticeable to me.
All you need is about 1/2 TBS (per lb.) to get an impact.
I highly recommend adding this to CP, lotion and any bath products.
OK. I made oatmeal soap once and when the soap gets down to the tiny bits, it really just ends up feeling like granola (ouch) but not with this product. This dissolves when dispersed in water and completely disappears in the soap. You get all the benefits of oatmeal and no surface wounds when you use your soap.
I love this colloidal oatmeal. I like to experiment with soap recipies and recently added this to my normal recipe. I was very impressed! It was very soft and the finished soap was great on my skin. I like it so much I've decided to make it a permanent addition to my standard CP recipe.
add some of this to your lotions ... it is wonderful!!!!
