APPLICATIONS & SPECIFICATIONS


AIR FRESHNER GEL


Agar Agar is also being used in gel form in Air Fresheners. It acts as a gelling agent and helps to retain the smell in essential oils.




BIO FERTILIZER


We offer Agar Agar used in the production of bio fertilizer gels. It is an allowed biofertilizer component used in organic farming.



COSMETICS


Agar Agar also has its unique role in skin care and cosmetic production. In the cosmetic industry it is mostly used as gelling, thickening and stablising agent in facial cream/lotion, foundation, shaving creams, tooth paste, liquid soap, body wash and others.




INSECT FEEDS


Agar Agar provides crickets and other feeder insects with a safe, clean water source in a convenient gel form. This easy-to-use formula eliminates many of the problems associated with traditional watering methods, such as the formation of deadly bacteria and loss through drowning. Due to its unique characteristics, Agar has gained tremendous importance in the field of cricket farming.




DENTISTRY


In dentistry, Agar Agar is used to make dental impressions. The Agar Agar type hydrocolloids are thermoplastic, elastic materials which are softened by heating, hardened by cooling and used repeatedly. In the hardened state, they are flexible and elastic and ideal for making dental molds and impressions.
