Mums discover the secret to soothe dry and sensitive skin!

Colloidal Oatmeal, nature's skin care wonder, has been around for centuries as a soothing remedy for irritated skin. Read on to learn about the benefits of Colloidal Oatmeal, and say goodbye to dry, scaly, irritated skin!

Do you suffer from dry, scaly, and itchy skin?

As mothers, we know that our bodies change drastically with pregnancy and motherhood.

We experience sagging breasts, stretched skin with matching stretch marks, loose stomach muscles, hair loss, and wider hips. Even foot size can increase by half to a full size!

But perhaps one of the most annoying physical changes is the way one's skin goes from smooth and healthy, to sensitive, acne-prone, dry, and even itchy because of hormonal changes.

After all, the skin is the biggest and most visible organ of the body. Dry, scaly, blemished, and itchy skin can definitely become quite uncomfortable, and can even affect one's self-confidence!

As the household and childcare chores pile up, or the demands of  work leave mums with hardly enough time to look at the mirror, skincare tends to take a back seat.

The good news is, mums don't need to have a complicated skincare routine at all. Take it from these mums, who have discovered the secret to soothing their dry and sensitive skin! 

Their secret? They've gone natural!

After participating in a two-week trial whereby they put DermaVeen's natural skincare line to the test, they've realised that the most common skincare problems, such as eczema, itchiness, scaliness, and sensitivity, can be exacerbated by harsh, chemical-based skincare products.

So they've kissed their old products and irritated skin goodbye, saying hello to moisturised skin that feels oh-so-good.

For these mums, skincare has never been easier and healthier! Thanks to Colloidal Oatmeal, the active ingredient in DermaVeen. Even mums with the most sensitive skin attest to the soothing effects of the skincare range.

Mums practically glowing as they share their thoughts on DermaVeen.

Dry and scaly skin

Dry and scaly skin is a thing of the past thanks to the wonders of Colloidal Oatmeal!

Colloidal Oatmeal moisturises the skin, and reduces trans-epidermal water loss1-3, keeping skin smooth, hydrated, and healthy. 

"Sometimes you feel like you've got snake skin...that's why you lose a little bit of confidence, and you want to sort of just cover up with more clothes," mum Vania shared.

"I have my older brother who is always disturbing me. He would just scratch my skin just to see lines, or he would try to write words or names on my skin. Because it was so dry, you could see the marks..." she also said.

After using DermaVeen...

"Definitely my skin is a lot more moist, hydrated. I don't think my brother can write any more words on my skin now," Vania laughed.

"I'm happy with the way my skin feels and smells," she added. 

Itchy skin

With its anti-itch properties1-3, Colloidal Oatmeal quickly soothes irritated skin.

For Audra, a 35-year-old stay-at-home mum of three kids, humidity caused her skin to become dry and damaged.

"My skin has been very dry, and it's very itchy when the weather is humid," she said.

"It's very frustrating sometimes because it's...very uncomfortable," she added.

But, within her first week of using DermaVeen...

"I think it was 5 days after starting using the product, I started to feel a difference. My skin was less itchy even after school runs, in the afternoons, mad weather. It just felt good."


Colloidal Oatmeal is a natural active ingredient that gently cleanses and moisturises the skin. It’s so gentle that even babies can use it! And to top it all off, Colloidal Oatmeal has natural anti-itch effect and anti-inflammatory action1-3, making it ideal for soothing you and your baby’s rashes.

"I even tried the soap-free wash on my baby girl when she had rashes...Within two days, her rashes calm[ed] down already," mum Jessica said.

What is Colloidal Oatmeal?

An oat sprig

The ancient Egyptians were masters of natural skincare. In fact, they were the first ones to discover the benefits of Colloidal Oatmeal!

Today, more than 2,000 years later1, Colloidal Oatmeal remains to be one of the best skincare products ever made by nature.

Colloidal Oatmeal is a gift from the earth sourced from Avena sativa, wild oat grains. The grains are ground into a very fine powder and added to water.

Colloidal Oatmeal contains polysaccharides, lipids, proteins, flavonoids, minerals, and vitamins--compounds that are known to soothe sensitive and inflamed skin conditions.1-3

Oats are also rich in saponins, which are chemical compounds found in plants. Saponins make Colloidal Oatmeal a highly effective cleansing, moisturising and soothing compound.

The natural option

dermaveen logoDermaVeen carries a wide range of products--from cleansers and moisturisers, to hair and scalp care--all of which contain Colloidal Oatmeal, the key active ingredient which is proven to help moisturise and soothe dry, sensitive skin.

"I particularly like the shampoo and conditioner because my hair has more volume, and even anti-frizz," mum Adeline said.

"The cleanser...was very smooth, not too creamy. It's a very nice fragrance. Even my eldest boy, when I came out from the shower [said], 'Mummy, you smell really good today. You smell yummy!'" Mum Audra recounted.

"I like the DermaVeen body lotion because it's very light weight and absorbs into the skin very fast," she also said.
