Does sandalwood powder help reduce tanning and pigmentation

Sandalwood has been used since ancient times in Traditional Indian Medicine for treating skin discoloration and the removal of tan. A recent study has thrown some light on the mechanism of this action.


Alpha-santalol, a key component of sandalwood was found to be an inhibitor of tyrosinase, a key enzyme in the biosynthetic pathway for the skin pigment melanin, and may potentially act as an inhibitor of abnormal pigmentation associated with ageing and exposure to ultraviolet light.
