Tea tree oil’s popularity in hair-care products is rocketing, and for a good reason. Also known as Melaleuca oil, it’s a volatile essential oil derived mainly from an Australian plant with antimicrobial and antifungal properties. For centuries tea tree oil has been used to treat skin infections and today it helps treat problems of the hair and scalp, including some of the underlying problems that create thinning and balding hair.
Modern high-PH shampoos and conditioners disrupt the scalp’s natural protective acid mantel and chemically burn the scalp, starting a chain reaction which allows any bacteria or fungus to grow on the scalp. As a result of these caustic commercial products, burned skin can then be plagued by any kind of non-optimal growth. So, the modern scalp needs a lot of help.
THE PROMISE OF ESSENTIAL OILS
Many essential oils offer promise. Most of these have antimicrobial properties, but there are only a few that have all four properties: antibacterial, antiviral, antifungal, and antiprotozoal. Tea tree oil is one of those rare gems that fight against infectious agents, reduce infection, and prevent damage from spreading, resulting in its expanding use in shampoos and conditioners. The anti-fungal and anti-inflammatory properties of tea tree oil help in reducing itching, the primary source of discomfort in the initial stages of rough, inflamed, dandruff-exuding eczema flare-ups. Scalp eczema is very hard to treat and causes hair loss. Moreover, antiseptic properties of this amazing essential oil soothe the skin, something that is very much needed in the case of itchy scalp. More fundamentally tea tree oil has antioxidant effects to save the skin from damage caused by free radicals.
ADDING AMAZING STEM CELLS
Our chemists and new product development team are on a continual hunt for incredible ingredients which, in combination with each other, can create the perfect formulations that do more than the label claims and exceed your expectations. A recent success is the combination of apple stem cells and tea tree oil to create the perfect environment for healthy hair and scalp. Tee tree in conjunction with growth enhancers, such as plant-based stem cells, have done much to handle the ever-growing problem of thinning hair and hair loss.
This combination handles both and is a very big factor in stopping the train wreck of thinning and balding hair by not only addressing the root cause of scalp irritations, but also giving the scalp and hair follicles the needed nutrition and boost they need to thrive.
Our experts recommend using both our tea tree and stem cell shampoo with and tea tree and stem cell conditioner to provide the famous “double whammy” to sooth and condition both hair and scalp.
