Acacia Wood Extract

The wood extract from the acacia tree has been used for many centuries for colouring fabrics. The dye is extracted by an eco-friendly and chemical-free method whereby the wood is steeped in hot water until a brown syrupy liquid is exuded. This is then dried and powdered. It is full of tannins, giving it its deep warm-brown dyeing power. It can be found in our Acacia Tanning Jelly.

Acacia wood extract has also been used as part of Ayurvedic medicine. It has been found to be abundant in catechin, epicatechin and potent antioxidants which give it the power to be anti-inflammatory and tissue-protective.
