Australian Bodycare Pure Oil is one of the growing range of skin care products that use the benefits of tea tree oil.
This 100% pure tea tree oil (Melaleuca Alternifolia) is available in 30ml and 10ml bottles here on HelloSkin.
Tea tree oil has been used for centuries – ever since it was discovered growing in the swampy lands of south-east Queensland and north-east New South Wales, in Australia. It was named because of the smell of the leaves from which the oil is derived but it has nothing to do with the tea plant, from which we get the leaves for our green or black tea beverages.
The tea tree is only found in Australia, so it remains the only place on the planet where high-quality tea tree oil can be found.
While tea tree oil is toxic when ingested, its ability to kill bacteria and fungus externally (antiseptic properties) has been commonly used for skin, hair, and nail products. These include all types of skin care products, shampoos, cosmetics, and other similar products. But it also has value in various medicines.
Typically, it has been used in topical creams & products for acne, fungal nail infections, scabies, athlete’s foot, ringworm, and lice. Its antiseptic qualities mean that it is also useful in the care of cuts, burns, insect bites, and for some infections. It may also be used to reduce allergic skin reactions.
