Better than water?
There’s been a fad about drinking coconut water as it hydrates the body better and it comes as no surprise when the same principles are applied to skincare. We’ve seen skincare brands using infused water to boost hydration properties and one such ingredient is bamboo water.
Hydrate and protect
In a study conducted by Hunan Yongzhou Vocational Technical College, China in 2011, scientists discovered that bamboo extract water has better hydration properties than regular water, and can reduce melanin in skin to brighten it. It has also displayed a fair protection against UV damage – it doesn’t mean you should skip sunscreen, but getting a little more UV protection never hurts.
Protects against free radicals
Rich in antioxidants, bamboo extract water are able to defend skin against free radical damage. Free radicals extract electrons from our cells in a bid to stabilize themselves, but in doing so damages cell walls and cause them to weaken. Over time, this leads to wrinkles and fine lines. Antioxidants readily give up electrons and takes the damage for our skin cells, keeping them healthy and strong.
Damaged skin? No problem
The use of bamboo as a remedy to treat wounds and cuts dates back several centuries in China. Bamboo extract water has anti-bacterial properties and contains methanol, which is known to have great anti-inflammatory properties, and can even be found in medicine.
