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.
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.
Our Tea Tree skincare range is enriched with Community Trade tea tree oil. The range battles imperfections and excess oil for purified, mattified and visibly clearer looking skin. We’ve put together a simple three-step skincare routine powered by tea tree oil.
Cleanse morning and evening with the purifying face wash.
