A fine, white, odorless powder derived from the fleshy tubers of the Arrowroot plant. These tubers bear resemblance to the Turmeric root and are quite starchy and nourishing. Arrowroot Powder acts as a thickener, opacifier, and softener that can also contribute to an absorbent effect. In creams and lotions, it is reputed to produce a brightening, mattifying, and skin-soothing quality that may be particularly useful in products designed for oily, acne-prone, and sensitive skin types. Arrowroot Powder provides a light, soft, silky finish to the skin that can also provide a cooling, drying, and freshening sensation.
