Konjac Glucomannan Gel Powder is a polysaccharide made out of the tuber of Amorphophallus Konjac.
The plant belongs to the family of Araceae which grows in South-East-Africa and Asia.
In China the plant is known as “Ju Ruo” and in Japan as “Konyaku”.
The Konjac plant blossoms in mountain and hilly landscape (approximately 800 m above sea level) of subtropical regions with temperatures above 16 °C.
It grows for example in the rainforest in Indonesia, in monsoon areas in Southwest China and also in Japan.
The reason that we chose to include this type of natural thickener is because it creates a see-through gel that gives a very soft and pleasant feeling to the skin.
In fact it stabilises and feels like polymers that we couldn’t create before now with natural polysaccharides.
The gel becomes homogenous, transparent and odourless.
You can use the same method as for making products with xanthan gum.
