The amazing anti-aging benefits of Sandalwood Oil
You may have noticed a new addition in our select ingredient list here at Goodieco: Australian Sandalwood.
Not to be confused with the essential oil of sandalwood, Australian Sandalwood is actually the seed oil and has a mild nutty aroma, which dissipates once rubbed into the skin.
Why have we included this in our new Velvet Cleansing Oil, you ask?
Benefits of Sandalwood Oil in skincare
With high levels of rare ximenynic acid, Sandalwood Seed Oil has been found to have a significant impact on the skin aging process as it increases microcirculation, reduces enlarged pores and distension and discolouration of the skin and firms the skin.
Ximenynic Acid has also been found to reduce the appearance of cellulitis and skin oiliness.
With natural anti-inflammatory and antibacterial properties, Sandalwood Oil can also help reduce the appearance of psoriasis, eczema and acne.
Sandalwood Seed Oil is very light and absorbs quickly, without feeling greasy.
Sustainability of Sandalwood Oil
In addition to its amazing skincare benefits, Western Australian Sandalwood is one of the most sustainable in the world, with a long industry history and careful management dating back to 1929.
Sandalwood can be harvested from both living trees “green wood” and naturally deadwood, with both offering the same quality of oil.
Western Australian Sandalwood is one of the worlds largest wild resources and grows naturally over 1.5 million square kilometres of Western Australia. This is almost the same size of France, Spain, Germany and Italy combined! The Regeneration Program for Wild Western Australian Sandalwood is a world-leading regeneration program, planting 5 million Sandalwood seeds per year, ensuring there will be twice as many trees in the future than the number harvested.
Sandalwood Oil is the hero ingredient in our brand new Cleansing Oil - Velvet. This new Goodie creates our very first anti-aging Trio, combining perfectly with our Ageless Routine, to create a stand-alone 3-step anti-aging Trio.
