The Sensorial Benefits of Farmal Starches

May 13, 2009

Detailed by Corn Products International

Farmal starches are vegetable-derived ingredients that provide formulators with tools to enhance sensorial attributes, such as spreadability, tackiness, shine, oiliness and skin feel.

Available in corn and tapioca variants, their substantial oil and moisture absorbency, as well as particle size and shape, allow starches to be used as effective sensorial modifiers. In fact, starch provides perceivably better skin smoothness than talc due to its uniform granular shape and particle size distribution, which enables it to “roll” as it spreads over the skin.
