Mattens oily, shiny skin areas
- Mattifies oily, shiny skin
- Leaves skin feeling silky-smooth
- Absorbs and seals in moisture escaping from the skin’s surface
Tapioca starch creates a soft, silky-smooth skin feeling, reduces oily skin, and reabsorbs moisture escaping from the skin to retain it on the surface. This keeps your skin from drying out and leaves it healthy and supple.
Tapioca starch is extracted from the cassava plant. The extracted powder is high in carbohydrates that can absorb substances your skin secretes.
Mattifies Shiny Skin
Tapioca starch is obtained from the roots of cassava plants native to Southeast Africa and South America. Because of its round starch particles, tapioca starch creates a smooth and soft skin feeling. It also absorbs skin secretions, mattifying it and keeping it from drying out.
