NutriBiotic Natural Body and Foot Powder contains grapefruit seed extract and tea tree oil. Both used by healthcare professionals worldwide to help protect the health of the human body. Why do I want to use Body and Foot Powder? NutriBiotic's Body and Foot Powder is actually a multi-purpose product. It is extremely pure and mild and therefore may be used all over the body on adults as well as children. The corn starch will absorb perspiration while the grapefruit extract and tea tree oil act as antibacterial ingredients to stop the growth of odor causing bacteria. They also are effective against yeast (Candida), which makes our powder perfect for use as a feminine hygiene powder, a ?jock itch? product, and as a baby powder for treating diaper rash. And since it contains no talc, there is no chance of increased risk of cervical or lung cancer, as commonly associated with the use of talc. I like that you use corn starch instead of talc, but what does ?treated corn starch? mean? Simply that the corn starch has been heat treated so as to be hydrophilic, which increases it's absorbability. Try this: Take a cup of water and pour a teaspoon or so of the powder into it. The powder floats on top in a little cluster. Now stick your finger into the water right through the lump of powder then pull your finger out. You will find that you have a light layer of powder on your finger, but it is not wet. This is a result of heat treating the corn starch. The ordinary corn starch you have in your kitchen cupboard would have just settled to the bottom of the glass in a clump and then absorbed the water to form a paste. Why is there silicone dioxide in the powder? That sounds chemical to me. The silicone dioxide is added as a flowing agent - it keeps the powder from clumping. Actually, the silicone dioxide we use is food grade. It is simply a more refined, purer form of silicon (a naturally occurring mineral with makes up a large portion of the sand on this earth) made by reacting raw silicon with water and a mild acid to isolate the silicone dioxide. I usually use a scented bath powder, but your body and foot powder is unscented. We leave out fragrance because we want to provide you with the purest, cleanest powder available. If you prefer a scented product, you can simply put a few drops of perfume, cologne or essential oils on a cotton ball and place it in a container with the powder. In about a day the powder will have absorbed the scent. Or you can drop in a whole vanilla bean or cinnamon stick for a spicy-sweet fragrance. INGREDIENTS Treated Corn Starch Heat treated corn starch to absorb a greater volume of moisture. You can actually eat this. Silicone Dioxide A food-grade flowing agent added to prevent clumping of the powder. See above for further explanation. Grapefruit Extract Added for its antibacterial and antifungal properties. Helps to curb yeast growth and support generation of healthy skin. Tea Tree Oil Another antibacterial, antifungal agent.
