This study evaluated Western Australian sandalwood (Santalum spicatum) seed oil and chemically defined it for cosmetic and pharmaceutical use. Parameters for the selection of suitable raw material sources were established. A novel supercritical carbon dioxide extraction method was developed to isolate the seed oil and its stability established. Isolated triximenynin and its pharmacological activities were studied. Sandalwood seed oil was non-toxic and non-irritant from in-vitro studies.
