Indian sandalwood grown in the wild was on the cusp of global extinction, plagued by years of over-exploitation, resulting in it being listed as a vulnerable species in 1998 by the International Union for Conservation of Nature (IUCN). We took it upon ourselves to secure an ethical and sustainable supply of this ancient tree.
For the last 20 years, we have built an enduring commitment to the ethical supply of Indian sandalwood. We care about creating a brighter, healthier future for this sacred species. We tread lightly by reducing our carbon footprint, opting for circular agricultural practices, and taking a firm stance on ethical and fully traceable supply. With a strict chain-of-custody protocol, we can guarantee a renewable supply of sandalwood into the future.
We work with the Forest Products Commission (FPC), so we can also ensure the legitimacy and origin of our Australian sandalwood oil products. The FPC regulates growth, harvesting and replanting of this native resource. Each year, as part of its regeneration program, the FPC disperses more than 5 million seeds across approximately 20,000 hectares of land using a natural dispensation process inspired by the native woylie, an animal known to collect and hoard Australian sandalwood seeds, burying them in shallow diggings.
