Maltodextrins + corn syrup solids
MALTRIN® maltodextrins are low viscosity, cold water soluble polymers that provide body and create a short, smooth texture for 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® 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.
