Bamboo, Sustainable Beauty Products

Bamboo, sustainable cosmetics
Eco-friendly Bamboo in sustainable beauty products is good for our environment. It is one of the best renewable sources available on the planet. There are over a thousand species. Bamboo's eco-friendly material is fast growing and has natural anti-bacterial properties. Bamboo is often organically grown because it is naturally pest resistant and does not need pesticides or herbicides. Bamboo traps carbon dioxide and then releases it back into the environment as pure oxygen. Just like trees do, but more efficiently. Bamboo is one of the best sustainable beauty products because it is very versatile. You can find it in just about anything: clothing, floors, food (bamboo shoots), cosmetic brushes, shampoo and skin care. If you are looking to achieve a healthy-looking hair and skin, then consider adding bamboo in your beauty routine.

Bamboo is high in silica. Silica is treated like collagen in your body. Cross-linked collagen begins to emerge as we age, and loses its ability to absorb moisture causing drier, wrinkled skin. Silica promotes an increase in the skin's water content, improving elasticity with needed moisture. In hair care products, bamboo improves hydration and luster. It will help your hair naturally hi-light in the sun with shiny locks. Try Bamboo Sustainable Beauty Products today. Our trees will thank you.
