Bamboo in Skin Care and Hair Care Products
Bamboo, Bambusa vulgaris, is a primitive grass and in the grass family. It is one of the fastest growing plants on earth. The foliage and grass is extracted and used in several types of extracts available for the use in cosmetics.
Bamboo is an incredible and versatile ingredient in skin and hair care formulations. Bamboo is rich in silica. Silica helps to improve the elasticity of the skin. I use bamboo extracts, isoflavones and bamboo bioferments in skin and hair care formulations in the Professional Natural Hair Care and Skin Care Product Making Course.
In Skin and Hair Care Formulations Bamboo Is:
Natural replacement for silicone
Promotes radiant skin
Adds shine, sheen and luster to hair
