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

We Had One Job

Oat So Simple was the creation of 2,300+ community members, 3 years in the lab, and a whole lot of energy drinks. Together, we crafted the formula with the goal of being just a really good moisturizer. Not bad, huh?

Sophia

Skin Concern: acne, dryness, sensitivity

Age: 18-24

“I've been using the Oat So Simple Water Cream for about a year now, ever since I found it in a YouTube review that was for people with acne prone skin. It's really refreshing in the morning and really calming and soothing at night. I wake up and my skin is definitely less irritated and my acne has not flared up.”

Brianna

Skin Concern: acne, dark spots, dryness

Age: 25-34

“I started using Oat So Simple Water Cream because my skin got completely compromised when I started using way too many acids... Between this moisturizer and the Great Barrier Relief, they completely reset my skin... Oat So Simple Water Cream is just the go-to whenever I need to reset and have my skin looking its best.”

Kendra

Skin Concern: acne, sensitivity

Age: 18-24

“I have been using the Oat So Simple Water Cream for about two to three years, ever since a junior in college. With all the stress, lack of sleep, and forgetting my skincare routine, all the moisturizers I would use wouldn't really work. My cousin told me about KraveBeauty and how their Oat So Simple Water Cream has very few ingredients and is very lightweight.”

Ally

Skin Concern: dullness, pores

Age: 18-24

“I really love the Oat So Simple Water Cream because it's universal and packed with emollients and simple ingredients. I would definitely recommend this to all of my friends because it fits all skin types. Plus, it just bursts onto your skin and it doesn't even feel like you're using a really heavy moisturizer in order for it to do the job.”

    Love it!!

    My face loves this moisturizer! It's lightweight but still feels so nourishing - while not feeling oily at all! Smoothing it on my skin feels so good, it's so light and airy but still moisturizing and protective. So glad I tried it, this is probably my favorite moisturizer!

    Great basic and versatile moisturizer

    Love this product. It's simple enough to combine with others such as great barrier or aloe vera. Light enough to absorb quickly and not feel greasy. While living in a dry climate this also has worked well with a couple layers if I'm extra dry, mixing with a heavier product such as GBR. It is also gentle enough to help in soothing my rosacea. Or as a light layer to protect my skin before using a mineral sunscreen.

    Oat so great!!

    I love this moisturizer! I use it after the Great Barrier Relief and it does an amazing job. I really like how it's not that heavy but leave my skin super hydrated. It gets in your skin super fast as well (like it doesn't leave it very oily afterwards)

    Good!

    It's thick but lightweight, but I don't find it to be moisturizing enough for drier skin in the winter. But I love the creator's philosophy and will continue to support the brand and try out other products!
