Brown Rice Flour

Brown rice flour is made from unrefined, unpolished brown rice and originates from southeast Asia. It makes an excellent exfoliant that is not too harsh for the skin. In addition to its gentle exfoliating properties, brown rice flour is rich in essential vitamins, minerals and antioxidants.

Essential nutrients are found in brown rice flour and not the white variety since the refining process removes nutrient-rich bran and germ.

Benefits of Brown Rice Flour for Skin:

  • Powerful exfoliant. Proteins in brown rice flour promote blood flow to the skin and act as a powerful exfoliant. This results in a natural vibrancy and glow in the skin.
  • Anti-inflammatory properties. Skin inflammation occurs as your body’s immune system responds to allergens, skin infections or internal disease. Brown rice flour’s rich essential minerals and vitamins reduce inflammation in the skin that would otherwise result in pain, swelling, rashes, pimples or redness.
  • Anti-aging properties. Another important benefit of brown rice flour for skin relates to its anti-aging capabilities. For instance, it contains selenium which improves skin elasticity and makes your skin firmer and healthier.
  • Treats and prevents acne. Its astringent properties make brown rice flour perfect for treating acne. Its course texture also removes dead or damaged skin cells, revealing smooth skin beneath.
