Raktha Chandan soap :Review

I’m fascinated by the medicinal and cosmetic benefits of Rakta Chandan (Red Sandalwood) and apply its paste whenever an ugly pimple sprouts up and I must admit that it dries up the zit exceedingly well and the paste (Red Sandalwood Chips /Red Sandalwood powder) itself in combination with Rose water, when used as a face pack, is extremely cooling and soothing to the skin. Incidentally both sandalwood (chandan) and red sandalwood with their antibacterial and coolant properties are ideal for dealing with summer skin woes. So when I happened to notice this soap named as Nagarjuna Raktha Chandan soap at a mall, I immediately purchased it.

The main ingredient of this soap is oil extract of Red Sandalwood (Pterocarpus santalinus) and it’s free from animal fat. Further, it’s mentioned on the label that it’s highly beneficial for an acne-prone skin and for relieving prickly heat, itching and other skin allergies. It even claims to get rid of dark spots and blemishes ( this seems a bit exaggerated to me). I’ve been using Nagarjuna Raktha Chandan soap for over a month now. It has that typical red sandalwood smell; the smell lingers on after the bath and it feels good; my skin seems to like it. Apparently, my skin didn’t break out as much these days and I haven’t been bothered by prickly heat rashes – this could have been due to the reason that I do take care of my skin in other ways too. Overall it’s a wonderful soap for pimply skins and in summers and a good buy for just Rs.13/-
