FAQs

Q: My 11-year old son just woke up with his first blemish. I’m reluctant for him to treat it with a standard over-the-counter acne product. Is tea tree oil a safe alternative?

A: While tea tree oil is a recommended acne treatment for teens and adults, there’s evidence that it can cause pre-pubescent males to develop breasts. Instead of tea tree oil or harsh over-the-counter treatments, opt for a mild, non-medicated facial cleanser. If more blemishes appear, consider talking to a family doctor about other safe acne solutions.

Q: Does tea tree oil have an unpleasant scent?

A: Tea tree oil has a particular scent that some people may find unpleasant. However, because the oil is diluted before use, the scent becomes less heavy and fades throughout the day.

Q: I have eczema and experience occasional bouts of mild to moderate acne. Many of the over-the-counter acne treatments I’ve tried have triggered irritations. Is tea tree oil an option for me?

A: Unfortunately, tea tree oil may worsen eczema according to WebMD. For acne treatments that are safe and effective for treating acne alongside eczema, talk to your doctor or dermatologist.

Q: I know that I should sterilize containers when storing homemade facial products. Is there an easy way to do this?

A: It’s extremely important to sterilize glass jars used to store cosmetic products to prevent the growth of bacteria. Luckily, the process is quick and easy: (1) Set the glass jars in a saucepan with just enough water to cover them and bring to a boil for five minutes; (2) Using tongs, remove jars from heat and place on a cooking tray; (3) Put the tray in a warm, pre-heated oven to dry; (4) Once dry, remove the tray and allow the jars to cool on a clean surface.
