Oat Extract

Oats have a long-standing tradition in Europe as a source of food product. The crop needs a lot of water which makes Denmark with its often rainy weather a perfect place for growing oats. Besides having many nutritional health benefits, oats also offer numerous nurturing properties for the skin. They have a high concentration of silicic acid and minerals, work as an antioxidant, smoothen the skin and moisturize it

Although both have a good taste and health benefits, we only use the common Danish bilberry (Vaccinium myrtillus) as a signature ingredient from our home country. Bilberries offer various health benefits such as being antioxidants and anti-inflammatory.
