Maltodextrins + corn syrup solids
MALTRIN® maltodextrins are low viscosity, cold water soluble polymers that provide body and add richness to creams and lotions. They have humectant properties and help increase playtime, which is especially desired for products that are massaged into the skin. MALTRIN® maltodextrins are an exceptional choice for baby products due to their mildness. These mild, nonirritating properties of MALTRIN® maltodextrins also make them effective fillers and carriers for medicated creams and lotions.

Starches
All GPC personal care starches have a function in creams and lotions. PURE-GEL® and INSCOSITY® modified starches provide viscosity and stability while maintaining an extremely cost-effective formulation. They contribute a smooth skinfeel and short texture to the formulation along with pH, shear, heat and freeze/thaw stability. Zeina® modified starch is used to modify the rheological properties of the formulation while maintaining the stability. Being a film-forming starch, this polymer also contributes unique properties when applying the formulation to skin. Using PURE-DENT® starches is an excellent way to give the final formulation a silky, non-tacky skinfeel. When used at higher levels, these starches can present a powdery feel, i.e., the formula goes on like a lotion, but feels like a powder. Medicated creams and lotions are an excellent application area for GPC starches.
