• Corn oil

    Posted by Gustavo on March 17, 2014 at 8:07 am

    Hello everyone! Do anyone know suppliers for the INCI Zea mays (corn) oil? I’ve been looking for this raw material but I’m having issues finding a supplier.

    Thanks!

    You’re probably going to need to get it from a food manufacturer/distributor. 

    In the US, 80% or so of the corn grown here is a GMO, and there’s no way to separate out the non-GMO corn from the GMO corn. As a result, as far as I know, corn oil has been eliminated as a commonly available cosmetic ingredient, due to anti-GMO consumer pressure.

    Thanks @Bobzchemist. I was thinking of something like that but this week I’ve seen a recent product with Corn Oil in its ingredients list.

    But if you know of any company that sells it I can manage to find their distributors in Brazil. Or even ask some distributor to make business with them.

    Depending on how much you need you may be able to find food or bakery supply places and buy from them.
