Tinctami™ Sappan PS

Add to favourites
Sappan wood is an evergreen tree, distributed in southeast Asia. Sappan is a thorny shrub cultivated for its dyeing and medicinal properties and is cut every 6 to 8 years. The heartwood is used in traditional medicine as a painkiller. The use of sappan wood in the Far East as tinctorial plant is probably ancient. Sappan was a very popular tinctorial plant in ancient Asian civilisations, as evidenced by silks from the 2nd century BC and 3rd century AD discovered in China, and by Indian and Chinese writings. Heartwood contains mainly brazilin, well known for its proven antioxidant, antibacterial and soothing activity. The wood also contains numerous flavonoids.
