4 Beauty Benefits of African Camwood

At Bellanomi Skincare, we're proud to introduce our star ingredient - red African camwood. This botanical wonder has been used for centuries by the Mgbidi people of the Igbo tribe in Nigeria, where it's a key part of the ikwe-ezi festival (a coming-of-age celebration). Known locally as uhie or osun, camwood powder was traditionally applied as a mask for a week to promote clear, glowing skin. And now, we're bringing one of Africa’s best-kept ancient beauty secrets to you! Read on to discover the incredible benefits of camwood powder for your complexion.

African red sandalwood, or camwood powder, has a long history of being used in traditional medicine for its anti-inflammatory and antibacterial properties. When it comes to skincare, it is known for its ability to cleanse, brighten, and rejuvenate the skin. For those with oily, acne-prone skin, camwood powder benefits can be particularly helpful due to its ability to absorb excess oil and unclog pores. Whatever your skin type, it has a benefit for you!
