Lipophilic starches

Lipophilic starches provide unique feel benefits as hydrophobic surface enhances affinity for oil, hand slip and compatibility with surface active ingredients. By ionic cross-linking with calcium or aluminum hydrophobicity of the starch surface is further increased.

Agenaflo 9050 is an aluminum-free alternative to commonly used aluminum octenyl succinate.

Lipophilic starches effectively absorb sebum and oil, reduce the greasiness of formulations and provide a velvety skin feel.
