Certain plants rely on their seeds to ensure their reproduction. Seedlings grow from these embryos of life, conquering new spaces and helping the survival of the species. To achieve this, the seed must have an energy reserve that is either protein, carbohydrate or lipid. This nourishes the plant until it becomes independent and can survive thanks to photosynthesis. Protected at the heart of the Oat seed, starch represents these carbohydrates and is a real reservoir of life.
The oat plant has a stalk of 60 cm to 1 m high and long flat leaves on which elongated seeds form, once a year. This herbaceous plant, with soft and airy seed tassels (made up of bunches) that give the field a firm and graceful appearance, is becoming more popular again. And rightly so, since it is a source of energy, vitamins and minerals. Yves Rocher Laboratories are aware of all its advantages and have chosen to develop it for beauty products by using Oat seeds grown in Europe.
The Oat has much to offer: its emollient and softening properties make it ideal for beauty products. Yves Rocher Laboratories have selected a hydro glycerin and oily oat extract for its Body Care, so that the skin can benefit from the softening properties of Oats.
The Oat milk from the seeds, rich in carbohydrates, lipids and proteins, softens and nourishes the scalp in our hair care range.
Oats are useful and gentle at the same time!
