Aurafirm from Oat Cosmetics is a sustainable patented ingredient derived from the fermentation of colloidal oatmeal (tradename Oat COM) using a unique strain of Lactobacillus to create an anti-ageing active.
The actives found in the fermentation product are AHA’s (exfoliation), beta glucan (firming), amino acids (skin barrier stabilisation), antioxidants (protection), pentapeptides (collagen production) and phospholipids (barrier repair). Aurafirm enhances the conditions for the skin microbiome, its first line of defence, to thrive. In vivo tests using 2% of the ingredient have shown improvement in skin smoothness, hydration, radiance and firmness. Aurafirm conditions and improves the feel and appearance of hair, leaving it soft and shiny after use.
