Desert Essence – Cleansing Bar Tea Tree Therapy goes beyond simple cleansing. It heals, protects, moisturizes and hydrates. It’s purely vegan soap with Leaping Bunny seal, meaning it hasgold-standard in cruelty-free certification. It contains Australian eco-harvest tea tree oil which has been extensively used to heal skin problems for almost 100 years.
The healing properties of tea tree oil are authentic and confirmed by various scientific research findings. It has antibacterial properties so it can be of big help in giving relief to bacteria-infected skin. How does it work? It has the ability to damage the cell walls of bacteria until they weaken and stop causing skin infections. Can tea tree oil then give you a life away from breakouts?The kind of bacteria that causes pimples and acnes are Propionibacterium acnes (P. acnes). The good news is that tea tree oil is affective against P. acnes so with regular use, you’ll have a clearer and healthier skin. Tea tree oil also contains high concentration of terpinen-4-ol, a compound with anti-inflammatory properties. Allergic reactions can worsen skin inflammation and cause itch, rash, redness, burning sensation, or blistering that will eventually lead to infection. Terpinen-4-ol in tea tree oil can soothe all of these by fighting the allergy-causing body chemical called histamine. One specific example of skin problem triggered by allergy is contact dermatitis, a type of eczema. Skin test findings show that tea tree oil is effective in suppressing allergic contact dermatitis.
For those with dry skin, Desert Essence – Cleansing Bar Tea Tree Therapy contains Jojoba oil. It’s ideal for dry faces as it moisturizes skin all day without clogging the pores.

In addition, Desert Essence – Cleansing Bar Tea Tree Therapy has Aloe Vera juice which contains Vitamins A, C, E to hydrate the skin and make it clearer and healthier. This cleansing bar is safe for all skin types, too.
