Standardization: 20:1 from the leaf

Botanical Name: Phyllostachys Glauca McClure

Bamboo has been used for aeons as a mainstay, as food, building material, and even as weaponry. With high levels of silica, the extract contains 10 times the amount of silica found in Horsetail, an herb known for its silica content and benefits to skin and hair. Its addition to products, it softens the skin, and smooths the appearance of wrinkles, and adds luster to the look of hair.

Common Uses: A pale pinkish powder that is soluble in hot water, it offers seven flavonoids to the cosmetic industry, as well as polyphenols, and strong antioxidant elements, all properties that enhance the healthy look of the skin in topical applications. It is 70% silica, which is used in preparations to strengthen the hair and nails, but in face powder, offers the effect of a natural primer. A tincture (or the standardized equivalent) may be made to add to the water phase of the product and used at 1.5 to 3.5%.

One of my favourite ingredients in lotion. Great skin feel: smooth and silky. I incorporate it directly into the water phase, heat and hold before mixing with the oil phase. Love it!

Fantastic product, incorporated it into a blend for a deep conditioning hair mask and am thrilled with the results. Very easy to work with,and though the smell isn't the greatest it is easily masked with essential oil's.Planning a new moisturizer based around this product next!
