The next chapter

We are the trusted guardian of pure breed Sandalwood Album.

Quintis has created the world's leading sustainable supply of the ancient Indian sandalwood (Santalum album) species. Through nurturing and invention, we have created a wellbeing super-ingredient: the world's purest and most potent Sandalwood Album.

With authentic DNA-verified seeds from the Mysore region in India, we replenished an endangered species by growing the noble trees in Australia’s tropical north. Under our care for nearly two decades, Quintis has 5.4 million Sandalwood Album trees covering 12,182 hectares.

Together with our partners, we are reawakening the world to the potential of this super-ingredient.

I have absolutely no hesitation that the next chapter in the history of Sandalwood Album will be written by a world leading, category defining, super-ingredient brand - Quintis.
