As Quintis and other companies grow sandalwood in Australia, making it possible to ethically source the ingredient, more potentials in personal care are being uncovered.
CosmeticsDesign spoke with Quintis Cheif Marketing Officer Vanessa Ligovich about the introduction of their ingredient to the personal care market, how sandalwood could be used outside of fragrance and what is next for the company.
Tell me a little bit about how things have been going with getting your sandalwood into the market.
It's going really well. We've released two studies in the last six months around the antioxidant effects of sandalwood. Since then we've had a lot of interest in the oil. The more we start to talk about it, the more interest we're actually getting.
