▎Introduction

Tonka bean is a tall leguminous plant, also known as black tonka bean. It is native to Fagaia and Brazil in South America. It has oval and shiny leaves, small white flowers, and the fruit is covered with a light brown shell. After the large black seeds have been processed , white crystals (coumarin) will form on the surface.

Tonka bean extract is in a semi-solid form and has a high proportion of coumarin, which can help blood flow smoothly, relieve shoulder and neck muscle tension, and help to relax stressed-out bodies and minds.

▎Component Analysis

Main Component: Coumarin

Primarily composed of coumarin (66.2%), which is colorless or white crystal, or crystal powder. It has a pleasant smell, similar to vanilla, and is often used in perfumes, spices and fragrances. It is also employed as a pharmaceutical ingredient and is an important raw material for spices.

Research Validation

▸ Coumarin takes its name from the Tonka bean.


▸ Learn about the therapeutic applications of coumarin compounds and their mechanisms of action.


▸ Dipteryx odorata (Tonka bean) contains potential chemopreventive components.
