RICE BRAN OIL FOR SKIN, THE DEEPLY HYDRATING, ANTI-AGING INGREDIENT
Also known as rice bran extract, rice bran oil is simply the oil extracted from the germ and inner husk of rice. It's similar to peanut oil, with high percentages of fatty acids which, by the way, makes it a perfect skin moisturizer!
Full of antioxidants, vitamins B and E, and wonderful natural emollients, this ingredient not only hydrates skin, but also protects.
The main benefit of rice bran oil to the skin is its wonderful deep-moisturizing capability. This is due to its combination of vitamin E and fatty acids, which go deep into skin to hydrate. It's recommended as an alternative to the popular lanolin, so keep plenty of skin cream with rice bran oil around for those cold, harsh winter months.
Concerned if you have oily skin? Try it anyway. Rice bran oil is light and penetrates easily, so it's not likely to increase the oiliness of your skin.
With all its natural components, rice bran oil is considered an anti-aging secret in Japan. It's actually a high compliment to tell a Japanese woman that she is a “rice bran beauty.” The natural vitamin E plus vitamin B help firm and tighten your look, maintaining hydration, which helps to reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.
Rice bran oil also contains “squalane” which is known to help your skin look younger and fresher.
The benefits don't stop there! Rice bran oil has a slight ability to brighten the look of your skin, helping to reduce the appearance of dark spots and smooth skin tone. Antioxidants like beta-carotene and lycopene protect from environmental stressors, and enzymes like CoQ10 provide active components that help it maintain its youthful glow.
Squalane is a compound present in Rice Bran Oil which is easily absorbed by the skin and keeps it soft, supple and smooth.
RICE BRAN OIL FOR YOUR HAIR
Dry, heat-damaged or otherwise brittle hair can make you fall out of love with your locks. Protecting your hair while restoring and maintaining a balance of moisture is key to seeing hair flourish. According to the "Journal of Scientific and Industrial Research," the ferulic acid and esters present in rice bran oil stimulate hair growth and help to prevent skin aging. Rice bran oil also contains antioxidants, such as omega-3 and omega-6 essential fatty acids, that have been shown to nourish hair while staving off the affects of premature graying. To reap the hair benefits of this oil, pamper yourself with a hot-oil treatment, use as needed to seal dry ends after moisturizing, or incorporate a little into your favorite shampoo or conditioner.
