Countless lotions, face packs, face washes, yet nothing seems to work on that irritating acne!
Tea oil is natures’ answer to all of your acne problems. Please don’t confuse it with your chai patti (common black tea) or green tea. The tea tree plant is native to the Australian continent and identified in materials of ancient folk medicine to treat skin problems.
In recent years, tea tree oil has re-emerged as an effective solution for people with acne-prone skin. Its anti-microbial and anti-inflammatory properties reduce acne and prevent new breakouts in the same spot. Tea tree oil is also proven to relieve boils and other skin infections.
WHY IS TEA TREE OILS SUITABLE FOR ACNE TREATMENT?
Anti-inflammatory and anti-microbial properties
Tea tree oil has high concentration of terpinen-4-ol, a compound with anti-inflammatory and anti-microbial properties. In animal tests, terpinen-4-ol was found to suppress inflammatory activity in cases of mouth infection. In humans, topically applied tea tree oil reduced swelling in histamine-induced skin inflammation more effectively than paraffin oil. In a study that compared 5 percent tea tree oil gel with 5 percent benzoyl peroxide lotion in treating cases of mild to moderate acne, both treatments significantly reduced the number of acne lesions. Although the tea oil worked more slowly, those using tea tree oil experienced fewer side effects.
RESTORES NATURAL OIL BALANCE
Oily skin usually means clogged pores & more acne breakouts. Tea tree oil naturally restores oil balance by penetrating deep into pores and removing toxins from the skin. Keeping your skin fresh & oil-free
REMOVES DEAD SKIN CELLS
Dead skin cells build-up is the no.1 factor for acne & uneven complexion. Tea tree oil’s anti-inflammatory property cleanses the skin deeply and doesn’t allow dead skin cells to accumulate. This prevents acne & helps maintain an even tone complexion.
