The 5 Fabulous Reasons Why Bamboo Extract Is Your New Favorite Ingredient

Bamboo is quite the celebrity in today’s eco-friendly world. This flowering grass is used to build structures, make kitchenware, create textiles, and produce paper products, and now it is taking the cosmetic scene by storm. But why? Well, bamboo extract contains 70% silica, and silica is the secret sauce for beauty. Let’s discuss the 5 fabulous reasons why bamboo extract is your new favorite ingredient.

  1. Promotes Healthy Skin & Improves Skin Elasticity

    Thanks to silica, bamboo extract helps to boost collagen production and reduce inflammation. As such, it has been used for centuries as a natural remedy for eczema, psoriasis, and skin wounds. Bamboo extract also has excellent moisturizing properties. It can help to hydrate the skin by binding to water molecules, keeping the skin plump and well-hydrated. This can be particularly beneficial in hair care products, as it helps to maintain moisture in the hair shaft.

  2. Strengthens Bones, Increases Connective Tissue, & Helps Joint Flexibility

    When consumed internally, studies show the silica in bamboo can prevent bone-related injuries, prevent bone loss, and increase bone density. As we age, this becomes more and more important, Queens. 

  3. Encourages Hair Growth & Prevents Hair Thinning

    A study performed at the University of São Paulo discovered that the silica in bamboo extract works wonders for our hair. It turns out, the more silica found in a strand of hair, the stronger and shinier it was. Talk about a glow-up…

  4. Protects & Strengthens Nails

    A study from 2005 showed silica to have a positive effect on brittle nails. Bamboo extract also enhances your body’s absorption of vitamin D, iron, calcium, magnesium, potassium, and boron. Increased bioavailability of essential nutrients = better health overall.

  5. Environmentally Friendly

    Bamboo is a highly sustainable and eco-friendly plant, making bamboo extract an environmentally conscious choice for skincare and haircare formulations.
