Features & Benefits of CORN PO4 PH “B”
- Silky skin feeling
- Reduces the oiliness
- Protracted liberation of the actives (aromas etc.)
- Pronounced matte imparting properties
- Improved spreadability of emulsions (ball bearing effect)
- Long-lasting moisturizing effect and slow releases: DISTARCH PHOSPHATES ‘lock in’ moisture adsorbed from the water phase of your formulation. When applied, this water is released over a long period, providing moisture to the skin throughout the day.
As a result of the drastically reduced moisture content, CORN PO4 PH B absorbs and binds considerable amounts of sweat and skin moisture, thus keeping the skin dry over prolonged periods. In addition to this, CORN PO4 PH B possesses a large specific surface area, that is, 1 g has a surface area of approx. 800 cm². This means that 1 g of CORN PO4 PH B can absorb 0.6 g of water without losing its powder characteristics, a considerable advantage compared with talc.
