Demodex

Tea tree oil has antibacterial, antifungal, antiviral, antiprotozoal and antiacaricidal activity as well as anti-inflammatory properties. It has been used for thousands of years displaying an impressive range of applications.

In fact, Tea Tree Oil is the only method proven effective in eradicating demodex mites. Tea Tree Oil components produce an acaricidal effect, and also lead the mite to exit the hair follicle and sweep out before mating.

Demodex includes a couple types of mites found in humans. They are very common, but some people are affected by demodex infestations, blepharitis brought on by demodex or rosacea brought on by demodex.

In office treatments using tea tree oil are common for patients affected by certain skin conditions. The treatments can cause irritation and burning sensations because at high concentrations tea tree oil is toxic. But it is incredibly effective for treating demodex caused skin problems. As an alternative, use a daily facial cleanser that contains the right amount of tea tree oil for prevention and management.

For at home treatments doctors recommend well-formulated products with a much smaller amount of tea tree oil. Like our Tea Tree Eyelid & Facial Cleansers. They contain a safe, non-irritating but still effective concentration of tea tree essential oil to manage demodex mites and prevent flare ups.
