UK Substitute for Corn Starch

I was looking at a recipe for making homemade bath bombs. One of the ingredients was cornstarch. What is this? We have cornflour in the U.K is it the same? Many thanks.

In the UK, cornflour is the same as US corn starch. In the US the corn flour is known as corn meal, which is a rough cut corn to use in baking and cooking.
