Rice has been used in traditional cosmetic applications for decades. Its abundance of skin-loving compounds such as ferulic acid and allantoin pack a multitude of benefits for skin and hair.
Powdered rice starch is absorbent, velvety-smooth and is often used as an alternative to talc and clays. It helps to gently cleanse and balance oils without drying out skin, making it a valuable addition to skincare applications. Ground rice also makes for an excellent gentle exfoliator.
In addition to rice being an excellent cleanser to help maintain healthy hair follicles and a happy scalp, the proteins in rice also help smooth hair strands to promote softness and shine.
