As with All Avre products, quality is of paramount importance. The key to Avre Tea Tree's effectiveness is the ratio of
two important chemical constituents present in the Tea Tree Oil:1,8-Cineole* and Terpinen-4-ol*.
Both of these main constituents of Tea Tree are bactericidal and germicidal however cineole can be a powerful skin irritant, for
thisreasona tree oils with low cineole and high terpinen contents are preferred.
The Australian Standard calls for:
- minimum terpinen-4-ol content of 30%
- maximum 1,8-cineol content of 15%
With Avre Tea Tree Oil we surpass this minimum Australian standard by a long way with the Terpinen-4-ol contents as high
as 37% or more and 1,8-Cineole contents as low as 2,7% percent
or less.This delicate,highpurity balancee of Cineole/Terpinen ratio in Avre Tea Tree Oil ensures a product that is highly
effective yet with a very low possible irritancy factor!
But then you would not expect less than that from Avre Natural Health!
