Tamarind Seed Gum in Personal Care

A new choice of natural hydrocolloids

Botanical, Sustainable and Clean label – GLYLOID® matches to the recent global trends in personal care products. It is a nature-based ingredient obtained from seeds of Tamarindus Indica tree. The nonionic polysaccharide, which is the main component of tamarind seeds, is extracted and goes through our special purification process for cosmetic applications. We are confident in high quality and safety of GLYLOID® based on more than 50-years track records in food industries.

GLYLOID® functions as a basic thickener or stabilizer in various personal care formulations. Plus, when used together with polyols such as glycerin, it forms a gel with fascinating elastic texture and shows a better moisturizing effect than sodium hyaluronate.

These characteristics are unique and different from other well-known natural hydrocolloids. GLYLOID® brings you fresh and creative ideas!
