The chemical composition of Tea Tree oil is defined by the International Standard for Tea Tree oil (ISO 4730:1996) entitled “Oil of Melaleuca terpinen-4-ol type”. This specifies levels of 15 of the more than 100 components in pure Australian tea tree oil. See Tea Tree Oil Certificate of Analysis for more details.
If Tea Tree oil is being used for its proven properties such as antimicrobial activity, then it is important to use the oil that meets the Standard, since this is the type of oil which has been studied and characterised most fully. Melaleuca has been researched since the 1920s before the advent of synthetic antibiotics. The growing popularity of natural plant products amidst the realities of resistance to antibiotics has led to major investment into research. True Blue Organics is using this research and combining it with certified organic sustainable methods of production.
Available in 12ml and 30ml glass bottles.
