Bamboo Extract , also known as Tabashir or Banslochan, generally comes from the leaves and stems of two common species of bamboo, known as Bambousa Arundinacae and Bambusa Vulgaris. The Bamboo Extract is obtained from the bamboo stems collected in the form of an exudate, a thick liquid of siliceous resin, which crystallizes at room temperature. This crystalline powder is very rich in mineral salts and is a excellent source of silica. These Bamboo Tears, also known as Tabashir Opals, are collected from the bamboo stems and dried and ground into a fine powder. Making a wonderful exfoliant, it revitalizes, restores elasticity and suppleness to the skin, and beautifies your body!
Taken as an herbal treatment, often in Ayurvedic Medicine and Chinese Herbal Medicine, Bamboo Tabashir has been used traditionally as a rich source of naturally occurring organic silica, and helps remineralize hair, skin, and bones. It also is considered a tonic and astringent.
Bamboo charcoal, also known as takesumi and bintochan, and bamboo vinegar are also wonderful health and body care products that help detoxify, purify, remineralize, and exfoliate the skin.
