It's incredible that the skin is the largest organ in the body and is responsible for removing many of the environmental and other toxins we are exposed to. The Silica in natural Bamboo extract provides nutrients the skin needs in order for it to stay healthy. It actually improves skin health by aiding the body in absorption of essential minerals, like calcium, potassium, and magnesium.
Natural Bamboo extract also contains anti-irritant properties, and is soothing to skin when applied topically through skin care lotions, body scrubs or treatment creams. Perhaps most importantly, this plant compound contains vital anti-oxidants, which fight off free radicals, work to minimize wrinkles and visual signs of aging and naturally produce a youthful glow. Bamboo leaves have recently been recognized as a rich source of flavonoids used as antioxidants. The flavonoids can reduce inflammation, stimulate circulation, and inhibit allergic reactions.
Just to recap, Natural Bamboo Extract is known to:
- Prevent premature aging and preserve the youthful radiance of the skin
- Prevent wrinkles and other visible signs of aging
- Reduce inflammation and improve common skin disorders associated with inflammation
- Promote circulation
- Help protect skin from free-radical attack
So, I'm a staunch believer in using Organic skin care products that contain Natural Bamboo's high Silica content, because they are very effective. This is due to Silica's ability to form a kind of "Cellular Cement," as it maintains the balance between elastin and collagen fibers. This offers added anti-aging protection for the skin, and really helps to keep it looking smooth, supple and young. Voila'! (:
