Natrasorb Bath is a very effective tapioca starch that absorbs many times it's weight in fragrances, essential oils, carrier oils, and water.
Although the INCI name is "Tapioca Starch," THIS IS NOT THE TAPIOCA STARCH listed elsewhere on this website as "Tapioca Starch, and IT IS NOT THE TAPIOCA STARCH YOU POSSIBLY BUY IN THE STORE.
This Tapioca Starch, Natrasorb Bath, is a very special modified starch made specifically for cosmetics, bath bombs, etc... and has many uses unique to the characteristics of this very effective product. The starch is made in a patented process so that 'pockets' in the Natrasorb bath carry the oils inside the powder making a solid, powder form. You can blend oils and even fragrances with the Natrasorb Bath so that you have essentially a nice skin soothing fragrance powder. And as soon as the fragranced and oil in the powder comes in contact with water, it dissolves, releasing the fragrances, oils and emulsifiers, dispersing them into the water.
USAGE: Usage varies depending on your application. If you are using Natrasorb Bath in a DRY product to replace talc in a dry powder formulation your usage could be as high as 75%. If you are making a cream or a lotion and want to build fragrance and have a silky feel to the product your usage mught be 8% to 12 %. In a bath bomb the usage might be around 2%. The best advice is to experiment at varying levels to get the effect you desire at a cost that makes sense in your end product.
