Tea tree oil

Tea tree essential oil is almost colourless, but it has an unmistakeable sharp and fresh aroma. This essential oil is obtained through steam distillation from the leaves of the Australian tea tree (Melaleuca alternifolia), an evergreen that’s been cultivated in Australia for centuries.

The cosmetic industry uses tea tree oil in many different ways. Its cleansing abilities as well as other all-around beneficial properties make tea tree oil great for acne and problem skin. Not only does it help regenerate skin cells, it also lightens age spots and even reduces stretch marks. In aromatherapy, it’s used to boost confidence and restore mental well-being.


Characteristics of Tea Tree Oil

Tea tree oil cleans and regenerates the skin, prevents infections, and even reduces swelling and soothes irritation. Its uniqueness lies in the fact that it contains up to 150 active ingredients which combat a whole range of skin problems. This makes tea tree oil truly universal in its use.

Cosmetics with Tea Tree Oil

Tea tree oil is considered a fantastic substance to use in a fight against skin problems. If you’re suffering from acne, oily skin, or lifeless complexion, try cosmetic products with tea tree oil designed to suit the needs of individual skin types. This is preferable to using pure tea tree oil which can cause allergic reaction and, when applied incorrectly, might actually be less effective.

This essential oil is added to a wide range of cosmetic products including tea tree oil shampoos and hair masks, tea tree acne creams, facial toners, tea tree face wash, face masks, soaps, tea tree cream, tea tree ointments, deodorants, and even tea tree oil intimate washes.

Thanks to containing terpene carbon dioxides which fight bacteria and fungi, tea tree oil has a very quick effect on acne and other skin issues, with first results appearing after only a few days. The oil also affects the permeability of cell membranes and thus improves the overall quality of the skin.

When using cosmetic products with tea tree oil, make sure to sufficiently protect your skin from sunlight. This oil makes your skin more sensitive, which is why you should use a product with high SPF.
