Tamarind is a big-sized perennial plant with sour-tasting leaf, flower, and pod. It originates in Madagascar in the tropical area of South Africa and is spread throughout the world. Medical research has indicated that the seed extract contains Xyloglucan with free radical scavenging and immunizing activities. Tamarind can be used as a laxative and an expectorant due to organic acids such as tartaric acid, citric acid, malic acid, etc. In traditional medicine, the juice is used as a beverage for patients with constipation. In addition, substances like gum and pectin cause Tamarind meat to become slimy when squeezed and mixed with water. This Tamarind meat is also applied to the face for antifreckle and anti-aging purposes. Currently, Tamarind Extract is used as an ingredient in body cleansing products for adjusting skin acidity condition, and antiseptic, anti-allergy, and skin tightening purposes.
