The molecular composition is mainly comprised of longer chain fatty acids, including oleic acid (50%) and ximenynic acid (30-35%).
For centuries, indigenous Australians used the oil from Sandalwood Nuts to soften their hair and to moisturize facial skin, especially from the drying desert environment. Sandalwood Nuts have also been crushed and made into poultices, then placed on the facial skin to form a mask, making the appearance of the skin smoother, softer, and tauter.
The molecular composition of Sandalwood Nut Oil is mainly longer chain fatty acids, and these lush lipids make the oil special for skincare. Thanks to the presence of these lipids, Sandalwood Nut Oil can be used to improve the appearance, texture, scars, sagging, crepey, and dry skin.
Western Australia is home to the world’s largest Sandalwood plantation, a sustainable stretch of land so big it dwarfs the geographical area of France some three times over! Partnerships are currently being formed with various indigenous tribes to involve them in the ecological sustainment of the land and the Sandalwood Nut trees.
