The Chinese variation of Tea Tree Oil is obtained through the distillation of the leaves of the Melaleuca alternifolia plant, much like the Australian Tea Tree Oil. It will also yield very similar characteristics to the Australian Tea Tree Oil.
There is a lot of misunderstanding around Tea Tree oil from China, most likely because of the ambiguity surrounding the chemical qualities of the oil. Genuine Chinese Tea Tree oil is very similar in properties and beautiful in its own way, but it is not much lower in price, only about 25%.
This product is available in 1kg and 5kg aluminium containers, 25kg fluorinated HDPE containers and 180kg metal drums.
This ingredient is produced for Khush Ingredients in China. Main harvest periods are highlighted in green:
24 months when stored within advised conditions, re-test every 12 months thereafter.
According to the Australian Tea Tree oil association, it is possible for tea tree oil to have a shelf life for up to 10 years when packed under an inert gas in a stainless steel container. We advise a shelf life of 3 years in stainless steel container after which material should be re-tested every year.
We regret that we can only sample bona-fide companies. if you are a smaller entity, then you are welcome to visit our Oxfordshire laboratory to see the oils first hand.
