Tamarindus Indica


Tamarind is a graceful stately tropical tree, whose pod-like fruits have a hard, brown shell that contains an edible, acidulous pulp. The tree is widely distributed throughout the tropical belt, from Africa to South Asia, South America and the Caribbean region. Tamarind bears abundantly up to an age of 150 years, being a very long-living tree.


The aqueous extract of Tamarind is extracted from the seeds: the polysaccharides maintain the correct hydration levels, forming a protective film on the skin surface able to reduce the transepidermal water loss.
