The genus Avena contains about fifty species mostly dispersed through the temperate regions of the Old World.
Useful grasses which are increased are Lolium perenne and Alopecurus pratensis, and among those of less value Avena favescens, Dactylis glomerata and Poa pratensis.
The mineral healing concealer, for example, contains skin-loving ingredients like neem (a natural antiseptic) and avena sativa (soothing oats).
They're a favorite among women with sensitive skin, due mainly to the high avena sativa (oat) content.
Some examples - avena sativa is a product derived from oats, triticum vulgare germ oil is from wheat, and hordeum vulgare extract is made from barley.
