Bamboo: A SKN BAR Rx Story
07 Apr 2022
BAMBOO ELEMENTS AND STRUCTURES ARE STRONGLY INCORPORATED IN THE INTERIOR DESIGN AT SKN BAR RX. THIS “MIRACLE GRASS” IS INTENTIONALLY USED THROUGHOUT OUR SPACE BECAUSE OF ITS INCREDIBLE REGENERATIVE ABILITIES, EVEN IN THE HARSHEST OF ENVIRONMENTS.
SUSTAINABLE. REGENERATIVE. PURIFYING.
Bamboo is the fastest growing plant on the planet and is significantly sustainable. When you cut it down it quickly grows back, and when left unattended it will take over its environment. A grove of bamboo releases 35% more oxygen than an equivalent stand of trees. It is well known for its ability to clean the air of toxins and carbon, ultimately lowering our carbon footprint and fighting climate change.
As a building material, it is one of the strongest materials to date, outperforming wood, brick, concrete, and even has a higher tensile strength than steel. Yet, it remains flexible enough for delicate materials. Even more so, bamboo can tolerate extreme conditions, and was the first plant to regreen after the atomic blast in Hiroshima. This plant’s incredible ability to heal, grow, cleanse, and purify with great strength is a great symbol of SKN BAR Rx and our passion for rejuvenating skincare.
Bamboo has been used for thousands of years for building and sustenance. It is sustainable, versatile, sturdy and flexible and can be used for so many things. From small common materials, being made into fiber for clothing, adding bamboo shoots to your favorite stir-fry, to building entire houses, it is almost better to note what bamboo cannot be used for.
The edible part of the bamboo plant are the bamboo shoots, that are often boiled and peeled and commonly used in Asian cuisine. They are highly nutritious and are a great source of fiber, copper, and vitamins B6 and E. Copper helps maintain the skin’s elasticity and with a healthful intake, you can experience the antiaging benefits from this mineral. Vitamin E is a powerful antioxidant that protects against inflammation and chronic disease.
The Korean Beauty Industry popularized bamboo extract, emphasizing how it can rejuvenate our skin in more ways than one. Bamboo extract is the richest natural source of silica, which is an essential mineral that has a tremendous impact on skin regeneration and a strong link to healthy, youthful skin. As we age, the abundance of silica becomes less prominent and has a direct correlation to the formation of loose skin, fine lines and wrinkles. Silica also works as an anti-inflammatory that may help to relieve skin conditions like eczema and psoriasis. Bamboo extract also contains methanol;: a powerful healing agent that cleanses and promotes healing skin, which can be used for minor cuts and scrapes, and as a great addition to your skincare products.
With all of the amazing benefits and uses for bamboo, it was almost a “no-brainer” for owner and founder, Susan Haise, to incorporate this rejuvenating material into the design of SKN BAR Rx.
Skincare, as we know, is an investment. It takes time and care as we embark on our skincare journey. However, having a regime that is safe, effective, and catered to you and your needs can help speed up the process through proper targeting of problem areas. No individual is the same, therefore no skincare routine should be the same. Through working with your service provider and developing a series of treatments and an at-home care routine that is comfortable for you, we can get you on the fast track to healthy and glowing skin.
