Tapioca Starch. TAPIOCA PURE by Nouryon acts as a texturizing and softening agent. It is a GMO-free, native starch which imparts smooth and soft feel to formulations. It interacts positively with the hydroalcoholic vehicle to give a light powder deposition resulting in an unusually pleasant feel on skin. At moderate quantities in a balm formula, it leaves a sensory perception of powder deposition with no visible whitening on skin. At higher levels of incorporation, a visible powder deposition can be achieved. The hydro-alcoholic balm concept with moderate levels of starch is excellent for after bath, pre and after shave, and fragrance delivery applications. Especially on hydrated skin, the balm can leave a cooling, refreshing feel. The balm concept with high levels can be useful in liquid foot powder applications, leaving an absorbent powder on the skin. Regardless of the level used, the final effect is a unique, appealing feel on the skin, superior to many other powders and starches. It can also be used in emulsions to change the texture of formulas. The starch can be dispersed into emulsions at low levels to give increased cushion and richness to a formulation. It has a negligible effect on the viscosity of an emulsion. The starch, when incorporated into an emulsion, does leave a soft after feel on the skin. TAPIOCA PURE is used in balms, fragranced, after bath, after shave, emulsions, body/baby powders, pressed, loose powders, antiperspirants/deodorants, color cosmetics, powder, sun protection, skin cream and lotions.
