Konjac powder is perfect for creating a variety of bath, body, skin and hair care products that require gelling/texturizing effects similar to those provided by synthetic polymers. It can help formulate clear, stable gels that maintain a soft and pleasing feel, without any tackiness, while providing a clean, plant-based ingredient option that appeals to the natural category.
This USDA Certified organic konjac powder is rich in protein, lipids, fatty acids, plus vitamins A, B, C, D, & E, and natural minerals such as copper, zinc and magnesium. With this powerful combination of natural ingredients and gentle thickening ability, Konjac Powder also shines for use in the skin care arena as an exciting plant-based ingredient alternative to synthetic polymers, such as carbomer.

The high fiber content of konjac powder has many health benefits. Soluble fiber helps lower cholesterol and blood glucose levels. A diet high in fiber may also help regulate bowel movements, prevent hemorrhoids, and help prevent diverticular disease. Here’s what the research says:
1.Konjac and constipation
A 2008 study found that glucomannan may help prevent constipation. The study showed that adding glucomannan to a low-fiber diet increased the amounts of probiotic bacteria in feces. It also increased bowel movement function by 30 percent.
2.Konjac and weight loss
Fiber is filling. Eating it regularly helps keep you fuller longer, so you’re less likely to overeat or snack between meals. Organic konjac powder also expands in the stomach to help keep you full.
According to a 2005 studyTrusted Source, adding a glucomannan fiber supplement to a balanced, 1,200-calorie diet caused more weight loss than a 1,200-calorie diet plus a placebo. Adding an additional fiber supplement (guar gum or alginate) didn’t have an impact.
3.Konjac and cholesterol
A 2008 systematic review found that konjac powder may help lower total cholesterol, LDL (bad) cholesterol, and triglycerides. Organic konjac powder also reduced body weight and fasting blood sugar. Researchers concluded that glucomannan could be an adjuvant therapy for people with diabetes and high cholesterol. A later study found that konjac lowered LDL and recommended its use to reduce the risk of cardiovascular disease.
4.Konjac and skin health
According to a 2013 study, konjac powder bulk can reduce acne and improve the health of skin. It’s thought to reduce allergic response and improve wound healing.
