Ximilene® is obtained from Santalum Album, a plant traditionally used in form of poultices as “traditional masks” to treat the skin and make it smoother, tauter and more velvety in areas where the species Olax, Ximenia or Santalum grow spontaneously. Ethyl xymeninate, contained in Ximilene®, as well as polyunsaturated fatty acids in general are important factors related to the nourishment of tissues and biochemical balance of the skin, as they make up an integral part of cell wall lipids, building up cell membranes.
