Both the beauty and fashion industries are being revitalised through the introduction of an increased number of products formulated with bamboo as an ingredient or crafted from the various parts of a bamboo plant. Today it is entirely possible to craft a head to toe ensemble crafted from bamboo while simultaneously styling the hair and finishing the face and body with bamboo infused make-up and beauty tools.
Bamboo Fabric Camisoles
Cuddl Duds produces some of the most popular long underwear options for women, but they have branched from the traditional pajama-esque suit to daintier and more versatile pieces such as camisoles and tailored leggings. A camisole, long underwear shirt, and two different varieties of leggings are offered by the company in a rayon fabric made from bamboo. The items are every bit as lightweight as Cuddl Duds advertises and are alternatively cooling and warming depending on the outer garments paired with the foundation pieces. When worn under a thick sweater, the camisole provides an extra blanket of warmth for the torso. Conversely, you can wear the camisole independently around the home for a cool, thin summer shirt.
Bamboo Handbags and Handles
Peapod markets purses featuring bamboo slats as the body of the bag and detailed wood accents and handles on the outside. A cotton lining helps the bag sustain a more natural feel from top to bottom. However, if you are a crafty fashionista, you can get your bamboo kicks in a do-it-yourself fashion by purchasing a bamboo purse handle from your favorite craft store and using it to accent your own homemade purse.
Alterna Bamboo Haircare
Alterna markets a line of haircare products marketed with bamboo as an essential ingredient. Bamboo Smooth, Bamboo Shine and Bamboo Volume shampoos, conditioners, mists, oils and creams address the needs of a variety of hair types. At an average price point of $20.00, the Bamboo line is a bit of a splurge for the average beauty budget, but the results make the products well worth an occasional indulgence.
Beauty Products and Tools Featuring Bamboo
It seems as if every month of the past year or two has brought with it a new make-up line or tool that is formulated with or entirely of bamboo. Two of the more popular lines are Physicians Formula Bamboo Wear and EcoTools. Physicians Formula utilizes bamboo silk within their line of foundations and bronzers and markets refillable bamboo compacts as well as make-up brushes.
EcoTools produces make-up brushes and tools exclusively. Their products are endorsed by actress Alicia Silverstone who has also designed a collection of tools for them. Physicians Formula products are marketed at Target stores and Walgreens stores carry the EcoTools line and even feature the products on clearance from time to time.
Bamboo is a renewable and highly resilient resource. It stands to reason that it is a key ingredient in luxurious clothing, accessories, beauty aids and beauty tools. With the products featured above, you can rock bamboo from the roots of your hair to the bottom of your leggings and keep your entire body clothed in sustainable sleekness.
