Sandalwood Powder


Sandalwood powder is the dried and crushed form of sandalwood, which is a type of wood belonging to the Santalum genus.

Sandalwood powder has long been used for skin problems, and with good reason. Regular use of this antibacterial powder can fight acne-causing bacteria, exfoliate the skin, soothe sunburn, remove suntan, and reduce signs of aging such as dry skin and wrinkles.

When you experience an acne outbreak, apply a paste made from 1 tablespoon of milk, 1 tablespoon of sandalwood powder, and a pinch of turmeric powder. Wash it off after 30 minutes.

It is packed with santalol, which is the active ingredient in this wood and is a powerful sesquiterpene. Most importantly, both anecdotal and formal research have shown that sandalwood possesses antiseptic, anti-inflammatory, astringent, and disinfectant qualities, making it an ideal solution for many skin conditions.

Sandalwood Powder Benefits for Skin

Sandalwood powder has the ability to moisturize, exfoliate, heal, and whiten your skin, among other benefits.

There are numerous antioxidant properties in sandalwood powder, allowing it to reduce oxidative stress in the skin, relieve the appearance of wrinkles and age spots, while also boosting elasticity and making you look younger for a longer time!
