Lacto-intensive active complex
By means of a special process fresh organic whey is being fermented. As a base of nearly all BIOTURM products, the fermented organic whey normalises the skin’s flora and the acid mantle by the ingredients contained. Natural lactic acid, essential amino acids, trace elements etc. are well absorbed by the skin and normalise the skin's moisture level.
Under “special ingredients -> lacto-intensive active complex” you will find more information about it.
Avena Sativa Kernel Flour
Avena sativa is a type of grain also growing on poor soil or in damp weather. It grows in moderate climatic zones as well as in South and East Africa. Oat has already been known since the Bronze Age and ranks among the most natural grass seeds. Its inhibiting effect on irritations is among others due to the avenanthramide contained. It reduces existing skin redness and soothes the skin lastingly. Furthermore, beta-glucan is an important ingredient with anti-inflammatory and mainly itchiness reducing effect. Oat covers a wide range of applications; firstly it is used in case of gastro-intestinal complaints and secondly in cleansing and care products for dry and atopic skin.
BIOTURM is using colloidal oatmeal obtained from a special type of grain native to Finland in a patented process. It contains omega 3 and omega 6 fatty acids as well as a high percentage of beta-glucan. Even if the oatmeal is colloidal (meaning its particles are finely distributed), these are not nanoparticles but microparticles. They are unable to penetrate into the body but remain on the skin to become effective.
Avena Sativa Kernel Oil
The golden yellow oat oil is obtained from the oat grains; it has a subtle, light nutty scent of oat. The rich oil has a high content of linoleic acid and oleic acid. Oat oil has protective and skin soothing properties and supports moisturizing the skin.
