Sustainable, ethical and globally certified, Quintis is one of the world’s leading suppliers of raw sandalwood materials, distributing certified and legal sandalwood products globally. Our history dates back over 20 years ago when we established what is now the world’s largest Indian sandalwood estate.
Indian sandalwood (Santalum album) is considered an endangered species by the International Union of Conservation, a result of over-poaching and illegal harvesting. To secure the future of this ancient wellbeing ingredient, in 1997 Quintis sourced seeds from Mysore, India and then planted them in the tropical north of Australia – the same equatorial zone as its origin, and the ideal conditions for this species to thrive and flourish.
In establishing these plantations Quintis has created a reliable and ethical supply of Indian sandalwood logs, oil, chips and powder for decades to come. However, Quintis’ sandalwood expertise does not stop there. Quintis also supplies sustainably harvested Australian sandalwood (Santalum spicatum) oil, steam distilled at our custom-built distillation facility.
