Boling-resistant starches

Particulate starches are used in personal care applications to provide aesthetic benefits to cream and lotions delivering silky feel, reduction of greasiness, moisture and oil absorptions.

By cross-linking of starches heat tolerance of starches is granted. Such starches are cook-stabile and can be added to the aqueous phase before emulsification. Starch granules from different botanical origin differ a lot in size and shape. Rice starches are among the smallest of vegetable powders, measuring approx. 8 μm.
