    I think everyone will agree that the recipe is rather unusual. I have never heard of soap with oat flakes. What is useful in it?

    I think it cleanses the skin better and properly. And by the way, I suppose that it acts as a gentle scrub for hands, because it removes dead cells from skin.

    Maybe you are right, but still, I don`t think that it can be nourishing and that it can moisturize the skin.

    Try to add a few drops of some oil into the soap and I think that you will receive the necessary moisturizing effect.
