Other forest products exported are dividivi, a tanning bark, and resins.
Algarobilla, sumac, gambir, dividivi, and valonea, on the other hand, are associated with large amounts of sparingly soluble ellagic acid, known as "bloom" or "mud" which imparts a light colour to the finished leather, and conveniently covers the dark colour imparted to the leather by other tanning materials; for this reason the former are often used in the lay-aways or in the finishing processes.
This darkening effect of Neradol D is most conspicuous in the case of mangrove, maletto, and chestnut, but is absent in the case of algarobilla, dividivi, gambir, sumac, and valonea.
It occurs with gallic acid, tannin, and ellagic acid in dividivi, myrabolams, algarobilla, and chestnut wood extracts.
