Sandalwood nut oil is derived from a native Australian tree. It is a lightweight, dry, and highly absorbable emollient rich in ximenynic acid – a rare polyunsaturated fatty acid (found almost uniquely in this botanical) that helps calm and soothe the skin by coating and protecting the epidermis. The sandalwood nut oil in our products is sourced from sustainable local plantations.
