In order to enhance the extraction of the active components of this plant, bio-fermentation techniques have been utilized with Lactobacillus Lactis. The bio-complexed silica extracted from the bamboo through a natural fermentation process provides a slip on the skin similar to that of commonly used silicones.
In cosmetic and personal care products silicone creates a smooth, soft feel also referred to as slip, which is desirable for most skin care applications. It is also useful for creating a glossy shine on hair while improving combability and may be added to hair care products such as shampoo, conditioner, shine serums, and hairsprays. The standard process for obtaining silicon for making silicone typically involves precipitating silica in a reaction mixture that is kept in the alkaline pH region. Bamboo Bioferment is suitable for improving epidermal slip and aesthetics, and it may be used in applications such as lotions, creams, shampoos, conditioners, leave-in treatments, and make-up.
