Ontario, Canada: Soap.club, a handmade soap bar company based in Canada, has recently highlighted the benefits of sandalwood as a part of their 2018 campaign promoting the impact of natural ingredients on skincare.
A representative at the company says, “This rare and exotic wood with an extraordinary fragrance has been used in Oriental (Indian, Chinese, and Egyptian) beauty and health treatments for centuries. Its wonderful properties and benefits have made sandalwood handmade soap the ideal choice for millions of people around the world.”
Native to South Asia (India, Pakistan, Bangladesh, Indonesia, Sri Lanka, Nepal, and Bangladesh) as well as Australia and the Pacific Islands, sandalwood and the European mistletoe have common ancestors. Both are known for their highly desirable and long-lasting fragrance. Sandalwood has a distinct woody aroma and has been used extensively in incense sticks and aroma candles besides finding wide application in homemade soaps.
Sandalwood is commonly used as a medicine in Ayurveda, which is an ancient Indian healing science that uses natural herbs and plants to heal the body and mind. Sandalwood soap has been proven to have antiseptic and antibacterial properties due to which it is widely used in the Orient to treat infections and injuries.
When it comes to skincare, sandalwood oil, which is a key ingredient in sandalwood soap, nourishes the skin and prevents it from becoming dry, after bathing. It contains antioxidants that help prevent skin aging while its anti-inflammatory quality improves blood circulation and prevents the formation of wrinkle-causing free radicals.
Several clinical trials are underway to determine how sandalwood can be used effectively in modern medicine. Some researchers like the American Association for Cancer Research are trying to understand if sandalwood can play a role in treating serious conditions like skin cancer.
