A species of grass, rice is the world’s third largest crop. The bran, called “nuka” in Japan, is a moist inner oily layer of the rice plant and often produced as a by-product of milling in the production of the refined grain. Rice bran has some constituents that make it quite unique including: the nourishing emollient squalene, the potent antioxidant gamma oryzanol, and a rich amount of four forms of tocotrienols plus tocopherol (vitamin E). Other active constituents include: the phospholipids - phosphatidylcholine, phosphatidylethanaolamine, and phosphatidylinositol - and high amounts of oleic and linoleic acids. Rice bran has been highly acclaimed for centuries in helping to create the flawless skin attributed to Japanese women. It is a gentle exfoliant and skin softener that also prevents wrinkles, quickly heals blemishes, absorbs dirt and oil from pores, balances sebum production and moisturizes.
