Bamboo Extract is the New Hot Ingredient in Korean Skin Care-- Here's Why!
Posted on 14 August 2019
Korean skincare has taken over the U.S. beauty market by storm. Thanks to the influence of beauty brands in the Asian market, sheet masks are now commonplace. Before hyaluronic acid became the hot, new beauty ingredient, it was already established as a beauty staple overseas.
So what's the newest thing that could become the ultimate beauty must-have?
Not only is bamboo extract an optimal hair, skin, and nails nutrient, it's also a nourishing skincare ingredient. In Korea, it's not uncommon to find bamboo water being featured in many toners and hydrating products. What exactly is bamboo water? Essentially, it's diluted bamboo extract that's typically combined with other nourishing ingredients to create an ultra-nourishing formula.
We've taken an extra step by infusing our bamboo extract with provitamin B5 (panthenol). Vitamin B5 is a perfect skin ingredient because it helps the skin soft, smooth and healthy. Panthenol also has anti-inflammatory properties to help calm and soothe the skin.
Korean beauty brands are highly coveted, but they're sometimes hard to find. I'm certain that products that feature bamboo water are considered a premium item with a higher price tag. With Beautifully Bamboo's Silica Boost, you can infuse your current favorite products with your very own vitamin-enriched bamboo water.
Silica Boost is an all-purpose beauty product that transforms your ordinary beauty products into a moisture-enhancing powerhouse. Unlike products that contain marginal amounts of bamboo extract, you can decide how much or little provitamin bamboo you'd like based on the product you're using.
For instance, you might add just a few drops to your favorite skincare products. If you're looking to boost the effectiveness of hair products, you can use a capful or more.
We've heard great results from those who've added Silica Boost to their conditioners, lotions, leave-in spray, cleansers and more.
The sky is the limit!
