PART USED Leaves & Stem



Bamboo Extract is a plant extract obtained from the leaves and underground stems of Bambusa vulgaris. Bamboo has been used in traditional Chinese medicine for many centuries. The tall, straight tubes symbolize power and strength as well as longevity and resistance. In the Chinese phytotherapy, bamboo extracts are used due to their astringent and anti-inflammatory properties. In Ayurvedic medicine bamboo is used for the treatment of wounds and eczema as well. It is a rich source of silica which plays a great role in keeping the skin and hair healthy. The silica from bamboo extract improves skin health by helping the body absorb essential minerals such as calcium, potassium, and magnesium.

Bamboo Extract is recommendable to formulate cosmetic products with anti-irritant activity, the protection of skin and hair, integrity against oxidative processes and cosmetic products aimed at improving general blood circulation. When used in shampoos, bamboo extract is good at washing away dead skin cells and other unwanted agents that can build up on hair strands. By playing a role in removing a build-up of pollutants, body oils, and chemicals on the hair, bamboo extract can also add a natural shine and luster to your hair. Flavonoids are vein-active and vessel-protective agents because they reduce the permeability and increase the resistance of blood capillaries. This extract is of great use to formulate cosmetic products with anti-aging, photo protection and hair color protection and general blood circulation stimulation activities. Also recommended in deodorants as a refreshing and soothing agent.
