Bamboo For Beauty – Who Knew?

One of the fastest-growing plants on the planet, bamboo still remains a relatively unknown beauty powerhouse. Rachid Benmakhlouf of Naturaline Swiss Cosmetics looks at the beauty-boosting benefits of this amazing ingredient.

Promotes Healing

Bamboo contains methanol that boasts powerful anti-inflammatory properties that soothes and regenerates the skin.

Enhances Radiance

Bamboo actually contains 70% natural silica – an organic compound that’s essential for the body and maintains the elasticity in the skin to keep your skin looking healthy, supple and radiant.

Strengthens & Repairs

Bamboo extract can help to strengthen the outer barrier of the skin that protects it from bacteria and environmental pollutants. A stronger barrier makes it easier for the skin to fight off particles that can potentially damage and prematurely age it.

Reduces Melanin Production

Bamboo extract can reduce melanin production, helping dark spots and areas of hyper pigmentation fade away. Great for repairing skin after the summer months.


Thanks to the proteins, lipids and amino acid that it contains, bamboo is an unbelievable natural skin hydrator.
