BIOCHEMICA® TEA TREE OIL CHINA

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

Biochemica® Tea Tree Oil China 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 yet remained, and its true benefits are now being discovered. The material acts as a broad spectrum antimicrobial, enhances dermal penetration, has anti-inflammatory action, and topical anesthetic properties.

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