Rice Bran (oryza sativa)

Rice bran oil moisturises with anti-aging nutrients. 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 is why it makes it a perfect skin moisturiser.

The main benefit of rice bran oil to the skin is its wonderful deep-moisturizing capability and fabulous natural emollients. This is due to its combination of antioxidants, vitamin B and E and fatty acids, which go deep into skin to hydrate.

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. It has an ability to brighten the look of your skin, helping to reduce the appearance of dark spots and smooth skin tone. Other antioxidants like beta-carotene and lycopene protect from environmental stressors, and enzymes like CoQ10 provide active components that help it maintain its youthful glow.
