I noticed tapioca starch on the ingredient list of a sunscreen. I'm wondering could this ingredient increase glycation on skin?

Not unless it is hydrolyzed.

Thank you for answering! The ingredient list doesn't include Hydrolyzed Tapioca Starch, only Tapioca Starch. There is water in the sunscreen, and of course the sunscreen can be in contact with water, but I guess that doesn't "hydrolyze" the Tapioca Starch in the product, or does it?

To fully understand your answer, I would need clarification to the question in my previous post (which I have now edited to have the correct ingredient name).

No, water doesn't hydrolyze starch.
