Since the Roman Empire oatmeal has been a go-to remedy for dry and itching skin. More recently it has been found to provide great relief for sufferers of chicken pox, poison ivy, insect bites, atopic dermatitis and contact dermatitis.
Our Oatmeal Skin Nutrition Body Soap is loaded with certified organic oats that have been turned into microscopic particles (colloidal) so that the skin can get full, quick access to numerous anti-itch and anti-inflammatory ingredients. We also infuse the Oatmeal Body Bar with New Harmony Soap’s special blend of seven botanicals & vitamins for skin health.
Studies show colloidal oatmeal binds to the skin and provides a protective barrier against irritants. It contains water-binding polysaccharides and hydrocolloids that hold moisture against the skin. The fats contained in oatmeal add to its emollient activity, which helps itchy skin. Oatmeal acts as a buffering agent that can help maintain the skin’s normal pH.

It’s important you know what you’re feeding your skin. At New Harmony Soap we strive to educate our customers on the ingredients in each product.
Here is what’s in our Body Bar:
Skin Nutrition Infusion – Developed at New Harmony Soap, this proprietary formula delivers a unique blend of plant-derived antioxidants and nutrients optimized for rapid skin absorption. The serum consists of olive oil, full-spectrum Vitamin E, Tea Tree Oil, Calendula, Comfrey, and Neem. Please take a moment to learn more.
Coconut Oil – One of the best natural skin moisturizers in the world, Coconut oil increases skin hydration by reducing evaporation. Considered effective against a variety of infections due to its antifungal, antiviral, and antibacterial properties, Coconut Oil also gets credit for the wonderful lather of New Harmony Soaps.
Sunflower Oil – Rich in Vitamin E, Linoleic acid, lecithin, carotene and waxes, this seed oil possesses properties to prevent cell damage and retard aging. Sustainably farmed in the USA.
Unrefined Shea Butter – Extracted from the nut of the African shea tree. It melts at body temperature and absorbs rapidly into the skin without leaving a greasy feeling. At New Harmony Soap we only use Unrefined Shea because the refinement process extracts nutrients and often adds harmful chemicals.
Distilled Water – No chlorine. No fluoride. No pollution. Just pure H2O.
Sodium Hydroxide – Commonly known as lye, this ingredient is at the heart of natural soap making. The alkali molecules in the Sodium Hydroxide form a bond with the fatty acid molecules in the oils, yielding both salt (cleans skin) and glycerin (moisturizes skin). The process is called saponification. At New Harmony Soap we “super-fat” each bar. This means we use more oil, butter, and serum than necessary to ensure 100% of the lye is bonded (saponified) while leaving an extra portion of the “good stuff” unbonded – and available to nurture your skin.
