Gotta Love Arrowroot Powder

Updated: Feb 16

Arrowroot (Maranta arundinacea) is a tropical tuber native to Indonesia.


The underground stem with multiple roots, (the rhizome) stores its starch and energy. It’s high in protein and several nutrients;

  • Fiber, Folate (vitamin B9), Phosphorus, Iron, & Potassium.


The all-natural, non-toxic, non-GMO, plant-based sourcing of Arrowroot Powder, coupled with its positive associations with health and well-being, can also be a good fit for vegan and organic skincare and cosmetics users. It is known to provide relief to skin irritations including rashes, acne, skin sores, and rashes.


The fine texture of Arrowroot prevents the clogging of pores. It forms an excellent skin-friendly base ingredient. Arrowroot powder does not steal the natural moisture of the skin, rather it softens and penetrates the surface layer of the skin and makes it easier for moisture and other active skincare ingredients to go deeper into the skin giving it a more even and smooth appearance. Arrowroot also helps in drying out and eliminating issues like rashes, blemishes, and sores gently.


In haircare, Arrowroot Powder is predominantly used in dry shampoo formulations. It acts as an excellent absorbent of excess moisture and oils to instantly freshen and rejuvenate the appearance of hair strands. Once applied to the scalp, it can easily be brushed through the strands where it disappears without leaving behind flakes or clumps.

I personally use Arrowroot Powder on my hair when I don’t have time to wash it!

  • Just add the Arrowroot Powder to an empty spice or baby powder shaker and shake it onto the sections of your hair that looks a bit oily/greasy, rub it around, and brush as usual. I’m usually good for a day or two before I need to wash :)

'JustUs2' Blush by Ladybūd uses Arrowroot Powder as it’s main base.

The blush is so light and airy. It doesn't look or feel like makeup and it adds a healthy glow that lasts all day!


It is my humble opinion that this is the best blush for mature skin, because it doesn't cake into those beautiful fine (or not so fine) lines and crevices of your face.
