ACB Bamboo Isoflavones PF

ACB Bamboo Isoflavones PF acts as a natural silicone replacement and powerful antioxidant to provide benefits to the skin and hair. Bamboo is a natural, sustainable raw material with various benefits. Due to our environmental stance and continual focus on sustainability, Active Concepts developed an innovative bamboo-derived product. ACB Bamboo Isoflavones PF is produced by macerating bamboo stalks and leaves and then fermenting them with Lactobacillus lactis. This forms a bio-silicate with the silica, from the plants matrix. We then isolate the powerful antioxidants, without the use of harsh chemicals, to provide a product containing bio-chelated silica and isoflavones. ACB Bamboo Isoflavones PF provides both a resilient slip and powerful anti-aging properties, useful for a variety of skin and haircare applications.

  • Increase in Epidermal Slip Assay

    A twenty subject sensory panel was assembled to determine the in-vivo improvement in epidermal slip using ACB Bamboo Isoflavones PF. Panelists were asked to compare the improvement in slip using ACB Bamboo Isoflavones PF to a biological control. A 10% concentration of ACB Bamboo Isoflavones PF was prepared in a standard aqueous solution; a 50l dose was then applied to the subjects’ left hand. The results demonstrate that ACB Bamboo Isoflavones PF increases epidermal slip by more than 60% when compared to the biological control.
