Why tea tree oil is famous for acne treatment?

There are number of products in which tea tree is used like shampoos, mouthwashes, creams, toothpastes, lotions and gels. Its popularity has been increasing since the past few years for effective acne and blemish treatment.

Tea tree oil contains terpinen-4-ol which, in fact, is responsible for an antibacterial activity. It is most effective in killing Propionibacterium acnes when applying topically to acne lesions. Tea tree oil gel can be compared to benzoyl peroxide which is also used for acne treatments but has many side effects like burning, itching, irritation and dryness affected almost 79% people, while tea tree oil has less  side effects, easy to use and most effective according to recent study.

It is a precaution never to apply undiluted tea tree oil directly to ski which can cause irritation, itching, dryness, blistering and redness. Only 5% of the tea tree oil gel should be used to acne prone areas. A 5 ml of tea tree oil mixed with 95ml of water will make 5% tea tree oil solution.

It has a long history of use as Australian aboriginals used its leaves for curing burns, healing skin wounds, combating against infections due to its antiseptic and antifungal property as major constituents of tea tree oil are terpenoids.They used to just crush the leaves and then apply to the affected areas.

Tea tree oil is used for the following conditions:

  • Acne

  • Dandruff
  • Boils
  • Lice
  • Infections caused by using yeast
