While a late comer to the cosmetics game, bamboo powder is making its way into a range of products, including our Bamboo Lemongrass Foaming Body Polish. While many of us think of bamboo as a decorative planting for the garden, this attractive grass comes with several attributes that make it a useful addition to skin care formulations as well. Bamboo powder is known to contain various compounds, including flavones, glycosides, phenolic acids, and amino acids, which together provide a range of skin benefits.
Here are 3 reasons why you may just fall in love with bamboo powder:
- It Exfoliates. It differs from most other physical exfoliants because it is fine enough to deliver very gentle, yet effective exfoliation.
- It Has Antioxidant Properties. Containing various compounds, the flavones in bamboo extract give it antioxidant properties, which help to defend against free radicals.
- It Has Anti-Inflammatory Properties. Which helps to soothe red and irritated skin. The Chinese have known for centuries that if you cut your skin and put bamboo on it, it’ll heal faster. A study has confirmed this as well, thanks to several constituents of bamboo powder that deliver this benefit.
