Botanical Name: Maranta arundinaceae

Status: Organic, vegan

Arrowroot powder is obtained from the cylindrical-shaped rootstocks of tropical Maranta arundinacea plant. It is mostly cultivated in Australia, Brazil, South Africa, and Southeast Asia. To acquire the starch, the roots of the plant are washed, peeled, grated in water, descaled, and are made into a pulp.

It had successfully gained its title in the cosmetic industry when it started to be used as a thickening agent that provides countless benefits. Throughout the years, arrowroot powder has been used to create new beauty inventions including face powders, shampoos, DIY makeup, and more.


The powder itself has many uses and benefits. It is packed with a number of minerals such as calcium, folate, magnesium, sodium, omega-3 & 6 fatty acids, and potassium. As such, this makes it ideal for use in beauty care products.

Otherwise known as arrowroot starch, arrowroot powder is a lightweight white powder that gives off a soft, smooth, and silky feel to the skin when applied.

Makeup products such as face powders, bronzers, and eye shadows are viable with arrowroot powder. It helps lighten strong, dusky tones, and create multiple brighter shades. Aside from that, it also has the capability to absorb sweat and excess sebum which then translates to a lesser chance of re-applying makeup.

Not only does it play a great job at altering makeup shades but it also makes a good addition to body lotions, face creams, and moisturisers. This is because it acts as a thickening agent and an active ingredient in penetrating the top layers of the skin with its moisture-absorbing properties. Thanks to its solidifying ability, your skin will surely look softer and healthier.

In haircare, arrowroot powder can be used as an alternative to commercialised shampoos. If you are the type of person who is always in a rush, then worry not as this powder helps speed up your daily hair care routine. Do this by applying a handful onto the roots of your hair, gently massaging into the scalp, and combing through your hair with a brush to get rid of all the residue.
