Organic Arrowroot is utilized in skincare formulas both as an absorbent and to create a silky texture to oil based products. Organic Arrowroot is different than Tapioca Starch in its origin but is often sold under the same name. Organic Arrowroot is derived from the dried roots of the Arrowroot plant (either East Indian Arrowroot Curcuma Angustifolia, or West Indian Arrowroot Maranta Arudinacea), whereas Tapioca Starch is derived from Cassava Root.
Organic Arrowroot is high in natural vitamins and minerals such as B6, zinc and potassium. This makes it a great addition to skin healing products, such as wound salves and treatments. This also makes it an excellent ingredient when making natural diaper rash creams.
Adding Organic Arrowroot to your oil base products helps to lessen the oily affect on the skin, and gives your products a nice, silky texture. You can add anywhere from 1-30%, depending on what you want the final texture to be. Organic Arrowroot also acts as a binder and whitener.
If you’re making natural deodorants, Organic Arrowroot is the go-to ingredient to help create the smooth texture and have a drying effect on the skin. Organic Arrowroot helps to pull moisture away from the skin and helps your product to have soft glide when applied. Organic Arrowroot also does not cause the burning affect that Sodium Bicarbonate can have on some individuals. We also carry Magnesium Hydroxide Powder that works in combination with Organic Arrowroot Powder in natural deodorants. Suggested levels for natural deodorants is 20-30%.
Since Organic Arrowroot Powder is full of minerals and helps to decrease sebum on the skin it makes an excellent ingredient for face, body and foot powders. Organic Arrowroot is a healthier and natural alternative to Talcum powder. You can use Organic Arrowroot powder to create tinted facial powders, and if you incorporate some Zinc you will give the powder a natural sun protection quality.
You can also incorporate Organic Arrowroot Powder into hair masks, shampoo bars and conditioner bars. The Organic Arrowroot works wonderfully on oily scalps to help pull out sebum.
