This Cult Favorite Skincare Range is Now Better Than Ever!

The Body Shop’s Tea Tree line gets an all-new look and a new hero ingredient

The Body Shop’s Tea Tree skincare range needs no introduction. To this day, various products from the range line our vanities and fill our beauty kits, simply because very few formulations in the market are as potent and as quick acting. This purifying plant is a key ingredient for any product intended to combat oiliness and blemishes, and The Body Shop has that science down-pat. In addition, the tea tree that goes into these products is responsibly sourced through Community Fair Trade means. It is purchased from independent farmers in rural Kenya, giving them proper income despite residing in an area with low employment opportunities.

Having built its business model on leaving a positive impact on both people and planet, The Body Shop is also committed to making things better—and this includes its prized tea tree line formulation. Most of the products in the 11-product line are now enriched with salicylic acid, significantly affecting how effective the formula is in managing the unpredictable character of our skin. Continued use will result in reduced blemishes and skin that feels more purified, helping us look our very best despite the circumstances.

“I always tell my patients that we want healthy skin,” says Dr. Mara Evangelista-Huber, who was present at the event to discuss the impact of the reformulated Tea Tree line-up on common acne-related concerns. “We don’t want perfect, flawless skin; the only flawless thing I can think of is glass, which is inanimate. Our skin is very much alive, and it has characteristics and personalities just like we do. Normalize normal instead of striving for perfection.”

Environmental junkies will be pleasantly surprised by the line’s new packaging as well. Bottles, tubs, caps, and lids are made of 100% recycled plastic, with some even having been collected from the streets of Bengaluru, India. The clean flake labels make it easier to prep the containers for recycling—just peel it off once you’ve run out of product and drop them off at a store convenient to your location to do your part for the planet.
