Last Wednesday, I am invited to a skincare workshop to learn about a new Swiss-based skincare brand, OUD ESSENTIALS. OUD ESSENTIALS, inspired by the world of fragrance, which now they decided to take on global skin care industry. 

OUD ESSENTIALS working together with a team of experts, which includes skincare industry professional Jean-Marc Dufat, have formulated and developed a range of organic, anti-ageing skincare products that brings together nature and science, featuring the brand’s unique patented ingredient "OudActive+™" - a super refined, purest of the pure essential oil that enhances both physical and spiritual wellbeing. It is the first time in skincare history that Oud is used as the main ingredient in a skincare line.

It was really interesting to learn and understand how oud being produced and all of its benefit. Not only that it was widely used in fragrances, but now Oud Essentials found out the benefits of Oud using in skincare as well. 

Oud Essentials Skincare line that contains unique patented ingredient "OudActive+™'.

Oud, also known as Agarwood, is derived from the dark resinous wood of the Aquilaria tree, and the resin occurs in less than 7% of the trees in the wild, which makes pure Oud, therefore, extremely precious. Since 2004, all species of the Aquilaria tree have been protected under the CITES (Convention on International Trade in Endangered Species of Wild Fauna and Flora) convention.

Oud has been prized for its aroma, as well as healing and medicinal properties for thousands of years, especially in the Arabian Gulf, South Asia, Southeast Asia, and China. “Oud is rich in antioxidants, along with anti-inflammatory and anti-bacterial properties, which also have the ability to slow the aging process," says Nigel Mackay, CEO of Oud Essentials, Asia Pacific. “Research is currently underway to establish its efficacy in scar tissue reduction and enhancing the tone, luster and overall health of the skin.
