The Most Underrated Duo: Centella Asiatica and Tea Tree Extract

People understand the power of combining powerful skincare ingredients, like Niacinamide and Hyaluronic Acid, but have you heard about Centella Asiatica and Tea Tree Extract? This duo has been slept on more than it should as it not only treats redness but also acne. In this blog, we will be discussing more on this underrated duo and why you should give them a try from our BAZZAAL product recommendations!  

What are the benefits of this duo? 

Before we get into the details about this duo, let’s break down the ingredient’s purposes for those who aren’t familiar with them! 

Tea Tree Extract also known as “Nature’s Blemish Fighter”, is derived from the leaves of the Melaleuca Alternifolia tree that have antibacterial, antifungal, and anti-inflammatory properties. 

The benefits of this ingredient include:

  • Fighting Acne-Causing Bacteria: This extract contains a compound called terpinene-4-ol and helps prevent the spread of bacteria on the skin and treat acne. 
  • Reducing Inflammation: Helps calm and soothe irritated skin, reducing redness, and swelling from breakouts. 
  • Balancing Oil Production: Helps regulate oil production, prevents pore congestion, and reduces the occurrences of acne. 
  • Unclogging Pores: Assist in unclogging the pores by removing dirt, dead skin cells, and excess oil, however, also reduces the likelihood of acne development. 

Centella Asiatica also known as “The Skin Soother” or “Tiger Grass”, has been used for centuries in traditional medicine for its healing and rejuvenating properties. 

The benefits of this ingredient include: 

  • Skin Calming and Healing: This contains active compounds, including asiaticoside and madecassoside, which help soothe irritated skin, reduce redness, and promote the healing of acne lesions. 
  • Stimulating Collagen Production: Helps fade acne scars and promotes a smoother skin complexion. 
  • Strengthening The Skin Barrier: Aids in strengthening the skin barrier, helps retain moisture, and protects against external irritants. 
  • Anti-Aging Effects: Has antioxidant properties that help neutralize free radicals, reduce premature aging signs, and promote a youthful appearance. 

By using these ingredients together, they will both help soothe your irritated skin even for dark spots or acne scars.
