Use this natural Cornstarch Powder in body care products to improve the absorption ability of your item, such as in dusting powders. Cornstarch is also used as a thickening agent, but it does need to be heated, whereas guar gum does not.
Cornstarch is known to impart a “cooling” feeling to your product (because it draws moisture away from your skin), as well as provides a smooth texture. The insides of bottles are often coated with this product to prevent the sticking of bottle contents.
Try this “cooling” recipe!
- 1/4 cup cornstarch
- 1/4 cup arrowroot powder
- 1 Tbsp. kaolin clay
- 6 drops essential oil of your choice
Mix the dry ingredients in a bowl, then add the essential oil in – drop by drop, stir well! Pour into powder sifters and use as needed.
INCI: Zea Mays (corn) starch
