A light-as-water moisturizer that feels like a burst of refreshing hydration on the face. Formulated with less than 9 ingredients, including calming Oat Extract, it balances out your super serums and targeted treatments with some oh so simple hydration. Dive in.

A Break for Overloaded, Oversensitized, Over It Skin

Between active acids, potent patches, and concentrated creams, your skin is working its ass off. Until one day, it happens: burnout. You feel super sensitive, you break out, and you can’t even touch your skin without wincing. What now? The answer’s simple—Oat So Simple. It was created to be the no-fuss, just-right moisturizer that perfectly complements our supercharged routines.

The no-frills formula gives your skin the gentle calming it wants and the essential hydration it needs to go from “so over this” to “glad that’s over.” Whew!

PETA-certified vegan and cruelty-free. Always free of fragrances, essential oils, dyes, and colorants.

The color and texture of Oat So Simple Water Cream may naturally vary slightly from batch to batch. No worries! This is a normal occurrence when using naturally-derived ingredients and it does not impact the efficacy of the formula.

Water, Butylene Glycol, Caprylic/Capric Triglyceride, Squalane, 1,2-Hexanediol, Trehalose, Behenyl Alcohol, Ammonium Acryloyldimethyltaurate/VP Copolymer, Avena Sativa (Oat) Meal Extract

Pair with Great Barrier Relief
When you’re craving: Extra moisture
Why it works: Water-based cream to hydrate, oil-based serum to seal it in.
How to use: Can be mixed together or applied in any order.
Extra tip: Apply moisturizer liberally but apply serum in layers to prevent greasiness.

Step 1: Clean and separate! Before recycling your Oat So Simple Water Cream, make sure the jar is rinsed and free of product.

Step 2: Investigate! The Oat So Simple jar is made from PET [1], which is completely recyclable and is the most recycled plastic worldwide. The cap, disc, and spatula are made from PP [5]. Not all recycling programs accept PP so we recommend checking with your local recycling.

Step 3: Recycle! If both type 1 and type 5 plastics are both recyclable in your area, we recommend just throwing the entire container in the recycling bin. The labels or glue can be recycled too, so no need to remove those.

Materials Used
Jar: PET [1]
Cap, disc, spatula: PP [5]
Box: FSC paper and soy based inks

Lovely

Oat So Simple is wonderful. It feels hydrating and light. My only criticism is that it may be too light and doesn't seem to provide long-lasting moisture. Can be great when paired with a facial oil or something else.

Good product

I absolutely like everything about this brand. I like that it’s just a simple moisturizer, but it did dry in within a few minutes of applying. I wish it was a little more moisturizing and hydrating, but I do like that it has few ingredients.

A good medium to mix with other skin care products for sensitive skin

The Oat So Simple Water Cream is a good staple to have in one's beauty cabinet. I like to use it to add a bit more moisture in the afternoon if my skin is feeling dry or irritated. I also use it to mix oils, such as rose hip, as well as azealic acid or an exfoliant because my skin is so sensitive. However, I have not found that it is moisturizing enough in the winter to protect my face from the cold. If I use it alone, it's best used in the summer with a moisturizing spf.

Every other moisturiser I have used either left my skin wanting more moisture, or gave it an oily feeling, but this product OMG! It has changed my life
