Tea Tree Oil
Tea tree oil’s native to Australia, where it’s been used by natives for medicinal purposes for hundreds of years. It has incredible antimicrobial properties. A trifecta of compounds found in natural tea tree oil, terpinen-4-ol, gamma-terpinene, and alpha-terpinene, works to suppress proinflammatory agents. They also ban together to fight off acne causing bacterias. It’s known to be more gentle than AHAs and BHAs, other acne fighting ingredients!
Benefits: Pimples meet their match in tea tree oil. It zaps zits and then soothes the skin.
Skin Types: Normal, congested, and oily skin types work best with tea tree oil! Be careful, because too much of this oil can be drying.
