In cosmetics, it's primarily used as a skin conditioning agent because of its high content of polysaccharides. In vitro tests have isolated the plant's polysaccharides (Galactomannan) and shown them to mimic hyaluronic acid. Furthermore, studies demonstrated it to effectively repair dryness, provide long lasting suppleness & moisture, exhibit film-forming capacities and retain water on the surface of both skin and hair. In can also function as an anti-inflammatory and treatment for acne. You may find this botanical ingredient in cosmetic products such as sunscreen, foundation, facial moisturizer/lotion, anti-aging treatment, cleanser, hand & eye cream, skin fader/lightener, facial masque and toner.
