A Root to Nourish Your Roots
We love heading to chemistry class! Advancements in green chemistry mean we’re continually discovering new ingredients to harness the power of Mother Nature in our clean, pure and beautiful products. Tapioca starch is one of those ingredients. You may love it in puddings, pies and your favorite boba drink, so you’ll love it for your hair, too.
Tapioca starch is derived from the cassava root, a plant native to Brazil. It is commonly used as a thickener and viscosity enhancer and a green alternative to talc. Like talc, tapioca starch reduces the heavy and often greasy feeling of oils, esters and waxes.
