Maltodextrins and cosmetics
In cosmetics, maltodextrins are used by raw material manufacturers to formulate active ingredients. These water-soluble molecules acquire a cone-like structure in water that helps solubilize the active ingredients, increasing and enhancing their action.
These molecules thus have an extremely important technological function because they allow the potential of the active molecules to be fully exploited.
Their main functionality is to protect the active ingredient in the product, thus improving the stability of the formulas.
