Melaleuca Alternifolia (Tea Tree) Oil
Native to Australia, the tea tree shrub is part of the myrtaceae family which contains approximately 230 plant species. Oil steam distilled from it's leaves has been used for medicinal purposes there for a long time, before gaining popularity worldwide. It is capable of killing many strains of bacteria, viruses and fungi while simultaneously calming inflammation, which makes it ideal for acne prone skin. The composition of tea tree oils sold are regulated by an international standard, which sets minimum and maximum standards, for 14 active components of the oil. It is especially important to choose organically sourced tea tree oil which ensures it’s been tested, meets all criteria and is free from chemical toxins, fillers and solvents.
