BENEFITS OF
TEA TREE OIL

What are the benefits of tea tree oil and why do we use it in our
iconic Tea Tree skincare range? Find out here.

What are the Benefits of Tea Tree Oil?

Tea tree oil is an essential oil harvested from the leaves of the tea tree plant. It’s believed to have powerful antibacterial and antiseptic properties that help purify skin. Used in traditional and folk medicine for centuries, tea tree is believed to be effective in treating skin complaints like acne and dandruff, as well as insect bites and minor infections.

HOW DO WE SOURCE OUR TEA TREE OIL?

We source our tea tree oil from our Community Trade partners in Kenya. Our products contain only pure leaf essential oil, made with hand-harvested leaves that are gently steam-distilled within 12 hours of harvest for an exceptional quality, purifying essential oil.
Our trade helps provide the farmers of the Kenya Organic Oil Farmers’ Association with a steady income, and helps develop sustainable farming systems and fund community projects in the local area.

DON'T JUST TAKE OUR WORD FOR IT

TEA TREE SKIN CLEARING FACIAL WASH
Jimbob201201

“This facial wash is the best that I've used. I have combination skin with a very oily T zone and am prone to spots since I am a teenager. After using, my face feels nice and smooth - but it doesn't dry it out excessively! I use it morning and night and I've had less spots. The face wash I couldn't live without.”Customer testimonial taken from thebodyshop.com

TEA TREE SKIN CLEARING MATTIFYING TONER
VMaxine

“I've been using this product for 5+ years and it is my saving grace. I very rarely break out, and I'm mid 20s now. I have combo skin and I find this works great to prep my skin in the morning before using the tea tree pore minimiser and make up. I use it after removing my make up to prevent build up over night. I highly recommend this product and loving the bigger bottle size!” Customer testimonial taken from thebodyshop.com

TEA TREE OIL

“After reading the reviews on here I though get I’d give this ago. Had a massive spot on my chin and after using this once it went down 3/4 if it’s size and after a day or two it was gone! I literally can’t believe it! Best purchase I’ve made skin wise in a long time! Loving all the products from the Body Shop.” Customer testimonial taken from thebodyshop.com
