Rice Powder is made by grinding down rice grains into a powder. Not all rice flours are made the same way, which can impact their potential health benefits.
Rice is a whole grain similar to wheat, oats, rye, spelled, and corn. All whole grains are made up of three parts: the bran, the germ, and the endosperm.
The bran is the hard outer layer of the rice grain. Because of its antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties, it’s considered the healthiest part of the grain. Bran also contains bioactive components, such as ferulic acid and phytic acid that are extracted and added to some skin care products.
Like all types of flour, rice flour is made by separating out the three parts of the grain and grinding them down in various proportions. The resulting flour may have more or less of the bran and germ.
The primary ingredients found in rice flour act as anti-inflammatory and antioxidant agents that function to prevent skin aging, reduce UV damage, promote skin lightening, and Protection: and improve skin and hair regrowth. Brown rice protein has been touted as a natural exfoliant.
