Sappanwood is an extract from the bark of Caesilpina sappan (a flowering tree native to tropical Asia) used variously as a natural dye to colour food and beverages, yarns, fabrics and many more.   It is also known to have antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties and is used traditionally in herbal medicine to treat diarrhea, diabetes and blood stasis (though we don't recomment for human consumption).


This colour is produced by steeping the bark in hot water until a pigmented liquid immerses, and then it is dried into powder form.


Free of any chemicals or processing aids for extraction.


It has high fastness and wash fastness.


Sappanwood produces a virbant pink to magenta colour under alkaline conditions.


Due to its concentration,  the dye extract can be used at a level of 5% which is much lower than other forms of dye powder.


Supplied in a pack of 25g
