Description

Description

Cornstarch and cornflour are fine, silken powders milled from the dried seed cobs of corn. It can be used for culinary and cosmetic purposes, particularly as a thickener. It absorbs excess of oil and water more than any other flours, allowing to remove all the dirt from the skin when used in a cleansing product.

Cornstarch is really close to cornflour but they are not exactly the same. Starch originates from the inside of corn seeds and is more thickening than the flour, which is made out of the entire seed.

Corn is an annual type of grass and tolerates most climates very well. The plant itself has a long stem, growing up to five feet and flowering in early summer.

Applied directly on the skin, the powder lends the skin really soft, and is often used in cosmetics to replace talc.
