Tagua nut powder is an excellent natural ingredient, 100% vegan and cruelty-free, perfect for the formulation of cosmetic products as a replacement for polyethylene, polypropylene, polyurethane and micro pearls. This is because the small plastic pearls when transported by sea can be harmful and take decades and hundreds of years to degrade.
It is difficult to assess the time it takes, but it is considered to be slower than the earth, once the plastic pearls fall into the water and are covered by organic or inorganic matter that happens very frequently in the marine environment, it is less exposed to sunlight, lowering temperatures and oxygen, which delays its degradation.
Our product has undergone a series of investigations with teams of highly recognized Chemical Engineers in research ensuring both physical, chemical and microbiological quality that ensures that our product is in optimal conditions for marketing, as it is a natural plant polysaccharide, that is, completely biodegradable, its organic origin dissolves in water without affecting marine life.
In turn, the exfoliating effect that tagua exerts on skin was evaluated in vitro by observing the sample before and after treatment. Thanks to its efficiency, it was observed that it facilitates the removal of dead cells, resulting in clean, smooth and regenerated skin, as well as being less abrasive compared to other exfoliating particles. This analysis was carried out to obtain objective conclusions about the cosmetic efficacy of the product as a raw material.
Tagua is sourced from sustainable sources and wild-harvested in the rainforests of Ecuador. Its use helps to protect trees from deforestation and preserving the country’s natural balance, as well as to support local agricultural communities by promoting many environmental and social dynamics such as the generation of jobs for the population.
Our process of production is clean without chemicals and with machinery that ensures the granulation of the powder in personalized standards. The accuracy of our process ensures quality and commitment to our customers, therefore we offer different ranges of measures according to the need for cosmetic use.
