Containing antioxidants and moisturizing fatty acids, the key ingredient, East Indian sandalwood oil, has antibacterial and anti-inflammatory properties and soothes the skin. It’s been used for thousands of years in Eastern medicine, but is relatively unknown in the beauty space. The 3-step skincare regimen includes:
Benzac Skin Balancing Foaming Cleanser is proven to gently exfoliate the skin, remove excess oil and soothe breakouts without over-drying the skin.
Benzac Intensive Spot Treatment rapidly neutralizes painful pimples and calms inflamed, blemished skin.
Benzac Blemish Clearing Hydrator controls excess oil and hydrates the skin while preventing blocked pores.
East Indian sandalwood oil has been used for thousands of years in traditional Indian and Chinese medicine for its antibacterial and anti-inflammatory properties. Recently, researchers have gained a deeper understanding of the oil’s effectiveness in a number of dermatologic conditions. In addition to medicinal use, East Indian sandalwood oil has deep cultural significance in Asia. Every day, over 500 million sandalwood incense sticks are burned during religious ceremonies in India, where the wood is considered sacred and highly valued for its fragrance.
Poaching and over-harvesting have decimated the number of East Indian sandalwood trees growing in India’s wild. However, the tree is making a comeback through sustainable cultivation in the world’s largest East Indian sandalwood plantation, located in Northern Australia. The East Indian sandalwood in the Benzac regimen is exclusively sourced from this plantation, where the trees are continuously replanted to preserve and increase the population.
