XyPure T is a fine white powder for use in personal care and the food industry. Due to its more spherical granular shape, tapioca starch is thought to be one of the softest starches used in personal care. As a result, tapioca starch is an ideal natural replacement for mineral talc (talcum) in formulas. It is used in a wide range of personal care formulations, from aerosols and micellar waters to powder and creamy consistencies. Tapioca starch improves the sensory profile and leaves the skin feeling conditioned and soft. In high oil loading formulas the addition of tapioca starch can help mitigate the greasiness of the formula. Another benefit of tapioca starch is that it is gluten-free.
