A tale of devotion

Once upon a time a bunch of tree-loving folks set out on a mission to save the Indian sandalwood species. This sandalwood type has been in serious trouble in the wild for ages. Greedy people keep chopping it down while sneaky poachers persist with their illegal shenanigans.

Around 20 years back, we had this genius idea: let's plant sandalwood seeds in northern Australia and create a sustainable source. Our goal was to grow the trees the right way (no growth hormones here) with a clear trace back to their roots.

Fast forward to today and we're still so crazy about sandalwood that we decided to create an awesome skincare line to show off its powers.
