What is Holi Powder aka Hippie Powder™? Holi powder is colored cornstarch that is used to throw on people to celebrate “Holi” which is a festival of colors that originated in India. But today the color is mostly used to celebrate everything. You will see that a lot of races are based on the idea of throwing color on people while they run. The powder originally all came from India, but people starting getting sick after inhaling it because it would get moldy on the long trip to the United States from India. So now it is made in the United States and is safer than the product coming from India.
