INCI Name: Melaleuca Alternifolia (Tea Tree) Leaf Oil
Product Code: TTOA
CAS #: 68647-73-4
Brand: Biochemica®

Biochemica® Tea Tree Oil Australia is an essential oil produced via steam distillation of the leaves of Melaleuca alternifolia, an Australian native tree. The name “tea tree” was coined by the early European explorers who made a tea from the leaves of the melaleuca tree in an attempt to cure scurvy (which was impossible since it does not contain Vitamin C). The name tea tree oil has remained, and its true benefits are now being discovered. The material acts as an antiseptic and broad spectrum antimicrobial. It enhances dermal penetration and has both anti-inflammatory action and topical anesthetic properties.

Biochemica® Tea Tree Oil Australia may be used in a wide array of product applications where natural antibacterial properties are desired. It presents a pleasant, menthol-like odor which is clean and refreshing and is an excellent choice for use in toners, cleansers, soaps, shampoos and antiseptics.
