Tea Tree Oil

Ingredient in “My Lady” RE Royal Beauty Bar for anti-acne treatment

This skin miracle comes from Australia, where over 300 species of tea trees naturally grow. Aboriginal tribes in Australia have known of the tea tree’s healing qualities for thousands of years. They boiled the leaves of the tea tree to make tea and antiseptic poultices that treated cuts, wounds, and skin infections.

One legend even describes a magical lagoon where native people bathed to heal their burns, cuts, and skin disorders. Tea trees surrounded the pool, and the fallen leaves created a natural healing bath.

Tea tree has so many anti-viral and anti-fungal benefits that the Australian army puts it in soldiers’ first aid kits!

Tea tree oil is an excellent treatment for acne. One study found tea tree oil to be just as effective as benzoyl peroxide, but without the negative side effects like redness and peeling.
