What is rice starch?

Rice starch is a fine white odourless powder, derived from rice. It is said to be hypoallergenic, making it suitable for sensitive skin as it is unlikely to cause irritation or redness.

What is rice starch used for?

Rice starch is often used in cosmetics such as powders, powdered foundation, bath bombs, creams, face masks and dry shampoo. It is also a popular ingredient in baby products as it is said to be gentle on delicate skin.

In skincare recipes, rice starch is used for its high absorption properties. It can help to reduce oil and shine on the skin, leaving the skin feeling non greasy. Depending on the amount used, it can also add mattifying effects to finished products.

When used in hair care formulations, rice starch can absorb excess oil on the hair and scalp, as well as thicken and add volume to the hair.

Excluding its absorption properties, rice starch is also a great addition to creams, lotions and butters as it helps to provide a silky and soft consistency.
