For centuries, rice powder has been used as a natural exfoliating ingredient manufactured from rice seeds. The grains from rice powder are inspired by Asian traditions and have been used to achieve clearer, smoother skin. Due to its spherical shape and size, rice powder gently polishes the skin without causing irritations.
3 Benefits of Rice Powder
- Provides gentle exfoliation: Rice powder serves as a physical exfoliant that manually removes dead skin cells from the surface layer of the skin. Rice powder is a softer material than other forms of physical exfoliants, allowing for gentle exfoliation and zero irritation.
- Packed with antioxidants: Rice powder contains powerful antioxidants such as phenolic acids and flavonoids to neutralize free radicals such as smoke, pollution, and dirt that contact our skin daily.
- Increases collagen production: By defending our skin against free radicals, rice powder helps to prevent oxidative stress, leading to increased collagen production.
