STRUCTURE® XL starch can aid in emulsion stabilization, aesthetics enhancement, and viscosity build, allowing for outstanding stability over a broad temperature range (-30°C up to 50°C). It also brings body to the formulation and a conditioning after feel. STRUCTURE® XL starch is readily cold water dispersible so that no pre-mixes are needed. It can be added to the oil phase or at the end of a production, so a “one-pot process” is possible, leading to major savings in production costs. Emulsions made with STRUCTURE® XL starch do not require homogenization.

Because of its nonionic character and broad compatibility, STRUCTURE® XL starch provides the formulator with the flexibility to formulate over a wide pH range with high amounts of mono- and divalent salts (up to 20%) and a large variety of raw materials STRUCTURE® XL starch has also shown foam enhancing properties in cleansing systems at levels as low as 1-2%.
