Recently, one of our favorite Bramble Berry customers wrote us with some concerns about the talc powder that Bramble Berry sells. Intrigued, I looked into her concerns. After research, I decided that our cosmetic grade talc powder was a product that is safe under normal conditions of use. But, if she’s thinking it, maybe other customers are.
So, the Anti Talc Powder project was born.
Tapioca Starch Powder
Labcolors or True Tones
Fragrance or Essential Oil
Note: Rice Flour is pictured but doesn’t work very well
These plastic talc containers are affordable (just $1.38 per bottle) and easy to operate. They’re on sale for the month of December for just $.75 here. One side of the lid pops open with gentle pressure. Other options are wide mouthed jars with a powder puff or the sophisticated aluminum powder shakers.
Why Tapioca Starch Powder? Tapioca Powder is a modified tapioca starch that has been designed to be free-flowing and non-clumping. It is unique because to is aluminum free and because it has been modified with a silicone. It is velvety smooth and imparts a soft after-feel to the skin. It is great in body powders and can also be used in lotions and body massage bars to help cut down on a greasy feel.
Arrowroot Powder is a natural starch typically from the West Indies. It’s commonly used to thicken food sauces and imparts a light silky feel for body powders. It is free flowing and non- clumping for easy use with body powder containers.
It’s important to only use skin safe fragrances and colorants. No candle or potpourri fragrances and colors for this project, please.
