The origins of Rice date back to early antiquity in the Pearl River valley of China. The crop eventually made its way to India, then Europe, and finally the Americas. Rice is the most commonly consumed cereal in the world. It is grown in tropical and warm temperate regions and is valued for its grain, which has a rich nutritional profile.
In cosmetics, Rice powder helps conceal imperfections and mattify the skin. The gamma oryzanol found in its bran oil helps protect skin from harmful free radicals.
