Xilogel may rightfully be a sustainable and green replacement for hyaluronic acid. We are familiar with hyaluronic acid in skin care products due to its anti-aging and moisturizing properties. The production of hyaluronic acid relies on biotechnology manufacturing while Xilogel is obtained from the tamarind seed. In clinical studies Xilogel has out performed hyaluronic acid in regards to immediate skin hydration improvements.

Xilogel, extracted from one of the most beautiful tropical trees native to India, Tamarindus Indica, has useful applications for both nutricosmetics and spice manufacturing. Isolated from the tamarind seed, Xilogel provides some amazing attributes for cosmetic products based on a clinical test of 20 healthy volunteers:

  • Improves skin elasticity
  • Improves skin texture
  • Increases the evenness of the skin surface
  • Improvements in Cutaneous hydration
  • Strong moisturizing effects
  • Anti-Wrinkle Effect

Xilogel is also compatible with many cosmetic delivery systems which means that it can be easily added into formulations. Xilogel also has a strong sensorial appeal and has a silky touch.
