The red sandalwood tree can be found mostly in the southern Eastern Ghats mountain range of South India. The tree is prized for the rich red colour of its wood. Just like regular Chandan, red sandalwood is also sold in powdered form but it is a bit more coarse.
It is primarily used for skin care and beauty purposes. It is very effective in reducing blemishes and treating acne. It also helps in the removal of Suntan and dullness because of its cooling properties.
