Bath Salts using Natrasorb Bath Starch

Natrasorb Bath Starch is a fluffy powder which is able to absorb and carry large quantities of oils and anhydrous liquids, such as bath oils, essential oils, carrier oils and fragrance oils.  The starch is processed in a manner that creates unique “pockets” that can carry the oils in a solid, powder form.

Natrasorb Bath Starch is hydrophilic (water-loving) so that once the starch comes in contact with water, it immediately dissolves, releasing loaded oils, fragrances and/or emulsifiers and dispersing them into the warm water.

The starch itself provides a soft feel to the bath water, but does not settle or leave a film.

Natrasorb Bath Starch can also be blended with dry surfactants such as Sodium Lauryl Sulfoacetate (SLSA) to formulate foaming bath powders or bubbling bath bombs with a high oil content.

Natrasorb Bath Starch is the perfect carrier of essential or fragrance oils for bath salts, bath bombs, bath cupcakes, milk baths and the ideal replacement for talc in body powders.
