EarthOil by Univar Solutions is proud to represent Down Under Enterprises and their range of native Australian hydrosols.

Hydrosols are the natural by-product produced during the steam distillation of essential oils. This traditional process is carried out using modern equipment and materials, but the process itself would be recognised by producers of essential oils from centuries ago. The hydrosols, as the name suggests, are the saturated solutions of the plant’s water soluble components and would otherwise be waste product from the distillation process. This produces a delicately fragranced water that is stable, reproducible, and can be used to achieve high ‘natural content’ concentrations in personal care products as a water replacement, as well as for floral waters, misters, and bath products.

    PURE AUSTRALIAN SANDALWOOD HYDROSOL

    The hydrosol from the steam distillation of sandalwood offers an aroma quite similar, yet softer, to the essential oil. This characteristic odour, used so extensively in perfumery as a base note, may be further employed in aqueous-based formulations for fragrance, beauty and personal care applications. Sandalwood Hydrosol is an amazing addition to skin care products, it can be used in many ways, very often included in skincare products for men. For many years, Sandalwood Oil was extracted as an absolute. One of Down Under’s long-standing Sandalwood distillers pioneered the steam distillation technique for Sandalwood Oil and Hydrosol – eliminating extraction with hazardous substances such as hexane.
