REMYTEC FI is a native rice starch that has been obtained by a unique purification and milling process. The particle size is extremely small and can be considered as one of the smallest in the Personal Care industry. Thanks to this micro-particle REMYTEC FI is able to combine the hardness of rice with an ultra soft skin feel.
The small hard rice starch particles have a perfect round shape. These round spheres scrub and clean the skin in the most gentle way possible. Only dirt, sebum and dead skin cells are removed. Unlike surfactants, REMYTEC FI does not remove the protective skin lipids. REMYTEC FI cleans the skin, but respects the skin barrier

Because of it’s extremely small particle size, REMYTEC FI has a unique large surface which vacuums sebum, sweat and microorganism away from the skin. This efficient cleaning action is performed without disturbing the skin barrier and without stimulating the sebum glands.
