**This product is sustainably sourced from a special reforestation project on the island of Hawaii, which only harvests from dead or dying sandalwood trees, leaving the others to thrive. Additionally, as the sawdust leftover from processing sandalwood trees is often discarded, our supplier has developed a special apparatus that makes this byproduct viable for hydrosol production, ensuring that no part of this sacred tree goes to waste.**
Formulated For: Oily, congested, dull, damaged, sensitive skin
- Sandalwood (Santalum paniculatum):
cleansing and clarifying; soothing and rejuvenating
Hydrosols are obtained at the same time as an essential oil during the steam distillation process of plant material. There are oil-soluble and water-soluble constituents that are extracted from the plant, both bearing many of the same healing properties. The resulting oil portion is the essential oil. This extract is highly concentrated and often must be diluted before making contact with the skin. The water portion of the distillate is the hydrosol. Hydrosols are much lighter in concentration, making them safe for direct skin contact and useful for a variety of applications. As facial toners, hydrosols continue the cleansing process, refreshing your pores and calming the skin while adding moisture, balance, and protection. Our hydrosols can be lightly misted over the face without disturbing makeup or sensitive eyes. Their user-friendly spray-on application makes them a great on-the-go product, perfect for your purse, desk, or locker. You can also enjoy hydrosols as: room or body fresheners, aromatherapy spritzers, powder makeup setting sprays, post-workout skin refreshers, liquid bases for powdered masks.
Spray onto face, neck, and body after cleansing and before moisturizing.
