What is Aluminum Starch Octenylsuccinate?

Aluminum Starch Octenylsuccinate is the aluminum alkali of the acknowledgment artefact of octenylsuccinic anhydride with starch. It is acclimated in cosmetics at concentrations as top as 30% as an anticaking abettor and a nonaqueous bendability accretion agent. No advice was accessible on the attendance of algae in the cosmetic-grade ingredient. When acclimated in foods, Aluminum Starch Octenylsuccinate is articular as a adapted aliment starch, and is accountable to limitations on abundant metal residues. Oral studies application Aluminum Starch Octenylsuccinate or its accompanying sodium alkali produced no adverse systemic, reproductive, or adorning effects. Dermal injections produced no aberrant derma or systemic reactions in guinea pigs. Ocular toxicity was adjourned in rabbits and application an in vitro analysis (chorioallantoic film vascular assay). In both cases no toxicity was seen. An astute assimilation toxicity abstraction in rats was negative. Clinical tests adumbrated little affliction abeyant and no sensitization. Absent abstracts on algae in cosmetic-grade material, it was bent that such actual should accommodated the aforementioned algae requirements accustomed for adapted aliment starches. Based on these accessible abstracts the Corrective Additive Review Expert Panel assured that Aluminum Starch Octenylsuccinate is safe as acclimated in corrective formulations provided that accustomed limitations imposed on abundant metal concentrations are not exceeded.
