Tea Tree Oil Products in PH

6 Dec

Tea tree oil is a well known anti-acne ingredient. What are its other uses? It is applied to the skin (used topically) for infections such as acne, fungal infections of the nail (onychomycosis), lice, scabies, athlete’s foot (tinea pedis), and ringworm. Source: WebMD

At first, I didnt like it but I fell in love with it when I saw the effects on my skin. I made a list of products from different brands which are accessible. They are available at shopping malls. You don’t have to order them online.

Please take note, not all tea tree oil products are the same. They differ depending on the other ingredients included. 


DESERT ESSENCE ECO-HARVEST® TEA TREE OIL

3119NDE
This is the best in this list because it has one ingredient only and that is Melaleuca Alternifolia (Tea Tree) Leaf Oil. Description: Using strict sustainable agricultural practices, a federation of plantation owners who embrace the Australian Tea Tree Environmental Alliance, produce this pure Tea Tree Oil that is guaranteed free of herbicides, pesticides, and chemicals. For external use only. Their 15ml size is available at Healthy Options for Php 539
