Currently on the market there are different consistencies for face powder with different functions. Know their roles and know how to apply it is essential. For an inappropriately applied powder can evidence fine lines, small defects and not give the desired result.

One of the oldest face powder worn by women is rice powder

 
   

BRIEF HISTORY OF RICE POWDER

              

The powder is a fine starch obtained from the grain of rice, known scientifically as Oryza sativa.

Rice has been used as a natural beauty treatment for thousands of years to relieve the inflammation associated with skin disorders and for the cleaning and softening of the skin.

Since the sixteenth century, it has been used by Japanese geishas in makeup, because white fur has always been synonymous with wealth in Japan.

    

In Indonesia women drinkers rice in water to form a top layer of white foam. They withdrew this foam and leave dehydrate to form the powder that was used for makeup and skin treatment. The water in the rice is considered a natural emollient for retarding skin aging. Currently the rice starch (Oryza sativa) is still used as a raw material in the manufacture of some post makeup, such as translucent.

 

 

CONSISTENCY OF POWDERS

 - POWDER COMPACT - Helps establish the foundation, providing better coverage, gives a silky finish to the skin and reduces facial oiliness.
