“Oat kernel oil is rich in fatty acids that are similar to those naturally found in the skin,” Hammer explains. “It helps to moisturize skin, promote elasticity, and contains tocopherols [aka vitamin E], phospholipids, and omega-6 fatty acids, giving it antioxidant and anti-inflammatory effects.” Essentially, oat kernel oil is packed with ceramides to help repair your skin barrier, so your skin can retain moisture better.
All of the botanical oils and fruit extracts added to the mix — including, but not limited to, jojoba, rosehip, and sea buckthorn — are cold-pressed to get the most intense nutrients from them while being as sustainable as possible. (Plus, they’re poured into a recyclable glass bottle.)
The natural oils and extracts are joined by another star ingredient for protecting skin: tetrahexyldecyl ascorbate, which is a more stable, oil-soluble form of vitamin C. “It helps break down the free radicals that blue light can produce,” Jhin says.
With all these benefits in mind, I now look forward to putting this face oil on. Weird, right? You can shop the Kinship Kinskin Oat Ceramide Relief Face Oil starting today, February 2, for $35 on lovekinship.com.
