Khush Ingredients is partnered with the largest Chinese producer of tea tree oil. Australian and Chinese tea tree oil is held in the UK in drums and small containers.
Tea tree oil has been grown and farmed in Australia and we still supply this quality Australian oil, however the cultivation of the same botanical species is now prevalent in China.
The oil is derived by the steam distillation of the leaves and stem of the malaleuca alternifolia (the tea tree plant).
The oil has been used for centuries by the aboriginal people of Australia. It is commonly used today for its fragrance and reputed functional qualities, including as an antiseptic and for tropical infection control, toiletry and personal care products, such as shampoos, shower gels, bath foams, oral care products and acne control creams. The product is also used in animal health applications.
