INCI: Oryza Sativa Starch
Rice Starch is a fine powder of vegetable origin with excellent properties. The fine particle size has a significant influence on the absorption capacity. There are 2 different behaviors of Rice Starch depending on the application:
Used at a temperature below 50°C: Rice Starch is an ultra-silky, transparent powder that absorbs oil, reduces shine and reduces the appearance of pores, but does not dry out your skin. In skin care products, Rice Starch provides a long-lasting matt appearance and leads to a significant improvement in skin texture and moisture content. Especially the irritated skin calms down. Rice Starch is ideal as a substitute for talcum, which is known to remove moisture from the skin and dehydrate it. It enables the formulation of "talk free" products. In hair care products, Rice Starch absorbs excess sebum for more beautiful hair.
Use at temperatures above 70°C: Rice Starch plays the role of a co-gelling agent in the emulsion system.
