Tea tree gets better

Tea tree oil was truly heaven-sent when The Body Shop introduced the ingredient decades ago.

Known to reduce blemishes and treat various skin irritations, the brand recently upgraded its best-selling skincare line. The skin toner and facial wash have been enriched with salicylic acid, also known as BHA.

The brand is known for ethically sourced and naturally based skin and beauty products. For its tea tree oil line, the main ingredient is sourced from independent farmers in Kenya under the brand’s community trade fair program. The leaves are steam-distilled within 12 hours from the time of harvest to ensure the oil’s purity and potency. 

Tea tree oil is perfect for oily and blemish-prone skin, helping to control pimples, acne, and other forms of irritation, and reducing the appearance of unwanted blemishes.

The purest form of the oil is still available in small bottles at all Body Shop stores, while the skin toner and facial wash under the new tea tree oil line are now enriched with salicylic acid or BHA.

“We reformulated the line to include salicylic acid or BHA, which actually helps control blemishes and keeps them at bay,” explained Emily S. Koa, AVP for Marketing and Store Development during the Editor’s Room session featuring The Body Shop.

Salicylic acid is a lipid-soluble ingredient that can effectively penetrate pores. It can benefit those with oily and acne-prone skin by helping to remove acne-causing debris.

The Tea Tree Skin Clearing Toner and Facial Wash from Body Shop cleanse and refresh the skin, removing excess oil without the dry or tight feeling.

The tea tree line also comes in new bottles inspired by nature’s diversity.

In 2019, the company opened refilling stations for its products. Their plastic packaging is made from 100 percent recycled material. They source natural ingredients for their products that support ecosystems, helping to address climate change. Their formulations are 100 percent vegetarian and 60 percent vegan, and of course, the products are not tested on animals.
