Bambousa Arundinacea is a variety of bamboo found across India. It is a fast-growing type of reed with a tall, hollow stem. The substance collected from the nodes on stems of the female plant is known as "tabashir" in India. Rich in silica, it is used in traditional medicine for its remineralising action. As for the stem, once dried and ground, it becomes a very fine powder, with an average granulometry of 350 µm, which makes it an excellent cosmetic scrub that gently eliminates dead cells and rough skin.
