General: With its fast growth rate and a tensile strength comparable to steel, bamboo has had a remarkable impact on human history. The first gunpowder-based weapons were made of bamboo. Today bamboo scaffolding is used to build skyscrapers in South and SE Asia.
Skin Benefits: Bamboo powder is high in silica and minerals. The finely ground powder acts as a gentle exfoliant, efficiently removing dead skin cells without damaging your delicate tissues. We use bamboo powder in scrubs like our Pacific Grapefruit Exfoliating Shower Cream and Undaria Seaweed & Mint Exfoliating Cleanser.
Source: India | Sustainably grown and harvested
