Cornstarch, sometimes referred to as corn flour, is a carbohydrate extracted from the endosperm of corn. We're stocking cornstarch as, although it is a common ingredient in most supermarkets, it's hard to get it plastic free.
Cornstarch is a great ingredient for making a quick, easy and cheap dry shampoo as it absorbs the oils on your scalp and makes your hair look like it's just been washed.
