Osaka, July 1, 2021: DSP GOKYO FOOD & CHEMICAL is introducing TAMAVISCO™, 100% plant-based rheology modifier derived from the seeds of Tamarindus indica L. (Tamarind).
Tamarind is widely distributed in subtropical and tropical zones. DSP GOKYO FOOD & CHEMICAL explored the potential of this useful plant and succeeded in a commercial production of tamarind seed gum in 1964 for the ﬁrst time in the world. As a leading company, we have supplied tamarind seed gum for food category for more than 50 years. TAMAVISCO™ is a new valuable brand of highly purified tamarind seed gum which is suitable to global cosmetic demands.
Features of TAMAVISCO™
The tamarind fruit pulps are essential to local foods in the distribution areas such as Southeast Asia and India. We shined a light on the seeds that are by-products of fruit pulps and succeeded in creating a new value. TAMAVISCO™ contributes to Sustainable Beauty as an upcycled ingredient from 100% botanical source.
TAMAVISCO™ totally fits into Clean Beauty. It is non-toxic, non-irritant for skin and eyes, a clearly simple ingredient with single INCI and GMO free.
Not only showing stable viscosity as a basic rheology modifier with luxurious texture, TAMAVISCO™ is compatible with various surfactants and thickens amino acid-based surfactants. Plus, when used together with polyols like glycerin, TAMAVISCO™ forms an elastic gel. The gel works as a thin film on the skin to keep moisture content.
TAMAVISCO™ is an “advanced” natural polymer that brings fresh and new ideas to cosmetic and personal care industries.
