Maybe you’ve tried our Bamboo Blur Powder and love it, or maybe you’ve seen it on our website and wondered what it is and why we created it. Look no further! Allow us to break down what makes this product so awesome and worthy of our praise!

What it is:
Our 100% PURE® Bamboo Blur Powder is made with only 100% bamboo silica. Bamboo is a superbly eco-friendly, renewable and versatile plant. It’s actually a giant grass that grows easily and rapidly! Its uses range from building materials, clothing, a beneficial food supplement and more recently, a superstar skincare ingredient!

Have you ever given or received a Lucky Bamboo plant as a gift? Bamboo is a symbol of longevity, prosperity, strength and health. If you’ve seen bamboo, perhaps you’ve noticed what the inside of its stalk (known as the culm) looks like. View the image to see inside the miraculous bamboo plant!

Within the bamboo stalk, there is a white powder. This is where our bamboo silica comes from! Silica is naturally found in foods, including some fruits, vegetables, seeds and whole grains. But bamboo extract is the richest and most bioavailable source of this essential nutrient, containing 70% organic silica!

Silica is made up of silicon and oxygen, two of the most prominent elements in the world. It contributes to the body’s development and bone growth. When we are young, we have an abundance of silica in our systems and a lack of calcium. Silica is the reason why children tend to have beautiful skin and full, shiny hair. When we age, the amount of silica in our bodies begins to decline along with our calcium levels. After age 40, we tend to be deficient in silica without even knowing it. This can show up in many ways, including hair loss and an increase in wrinkles. Many people consume silica supplements to promote healthy hair, skin and nails. Often, these supplements contain horsetail extract and other complementary ingredients. But nothing holds a candle to the percentage of silica that bamboo extract contains!

Why silica is important:
Silica boosts the health of our skin, nails and hair. Topical, naturally antiseptic bamboo silica can soothe skin, replenish moisture and may even help clear blemishes. Our Founder, Susie Wang, likes to take silica internally and also apply it topically. While optimum health is achieved from the inside out, we do still absorb everything we put on our skin. So, what we put on our skin absolutely matters and is carried into our bloodstream. In this way, we believe bamboo silica may have topical skin benefits.

What our vegan Bamboo Blur Powder does:
-Blurs imperfections
-Mutes the appearance of texture and blemishes
-Finely milled bamboo particles are smooth and kind to sensitive skin
-Evens out skin tone while softening appearance
-Conceals fine lines and pores
-Soaks up excess facial oil while controlling shine
-Translucent, silky setting powder imparts a smooth, matte finish
-Makeup lasts longer and is “set” by the powder
-Face looks like a porcelain doll, soft-focused, radiant and natural

How to use Bamboo Blur:
Apply our Bamboo Blur Powder on top of one of our Foundations, Tinted Moisturizer or BB Cream. Press one of our cruelty-free brushes onto the mesh screen to pick up your desired amount of powder. Then, gently press the ultra-fine powder into the skin. Note: a little goes a long way! Finish by lightly buffing in circular motions to blend and create a beautiful complexion! Special tip: in a pinch, you can even use our Bamboo Blur Powder as a dry shampoo! Simply apply a small amount to the crown of your head, then gently comb it through for an easy, clean look!

What some of you are saying about this product:
“Great coverage and gives a nice, clean look! This powder is light as a feather and invisible. Gives your face an airbrushed look.” -Louise M.

“Like an Instagram filter!” -Alice

“Bamboo Blur Powder is in a class by itself. It really does blur and soften the face, but the main difference is it leaves my face feeling like velvet. Other powders are mineral, this one is plant based.” -Linda C.

“Love, love, love! My skin was soft to the touch all day long; natural, flawless, 12+ hours without a retouch...hard to imagine, but true!” -Victoria S.
