Since decades, rice starch has been used in the bath water for babies to calm redness of the skin. Now we know that this is not only based on a historical experience, studies have proven the effectiveness against a-topical dermatitis. The performance is related with the small particle size and moisture absorption. Typically used in this application is RemyTec C.
Because of the high specific surface and the extreme whiteness of the rice starch granules, RemyTec products are also used in e.g. mascara’s and foundations. Other applications like dry shampooing are also based on this high specific surface, resulting in a high ratio of absorption of greasiness.
Most popular products are RemyTec F and RemyTec F-I. The latter is the same as RemyTec F, but has been irradiated to fulfill the requested microbiological specifications.
