How Does It Work?

Tea-Tree Oil is made from Melaleuca alternifolia, a plant common in Australia’s New South Wales Region. With a fresh scent, the tea-tree plant yields transparent or light yellow colored oil. It also exerts an oily feel on the fingers. The leading Tea-Tree Oil should be cent percent pure, non-refined and chemical free. It has been sourced from plant leaves. Tea-Tree Oil is perfect for acne if it has not been diluted in any way. Why is this?

Well, Tea-Tree Oil is considered an antimicrobial substance. It is not safe for ingestion, but perfectly fine for topical use. It is also non-carcinogenic, unlike chemical rich acne cures. You can use this oil as frequently as you need. It also has antibacterial properties. Tea-Tree Oil can destroy MRSA or staph infection in hospitals. It also destroys the acne bacteria that leads to pimples and inflammation living inside the hair follicles. Apart from disinfecting the skin, it also soothes the complexion, which is perfect when acne flares up and skin irritation results.

Tea-Tree Oil contains impressive antibacterial properties called terpenes. These are a type of volatile oil, destroying the bacteria and soothing the skin. A study conducted by a dermatology college in Australia found that combination of this oil gel as against a face wash worked better when it came to improving mild to medium level of acne breakouts.

Works really well! My sister uses this as a go-to treatment for her constant acne - works every time.
