Ingredient spotlight: Eucalyptus

Instantly refreshing and revitalising, Eucalyptus Essential Oil has been around for hundreds of years. With long stems, circular leaves, and gum-infused bark, its tree is one of the world’s most widely cultivated plants.  The ‘eu’ and ‘kalypto’ in the word mean ‘well’ and ‘covered’ in Greek (ευ + καλύπτω) and it refers to the delicate membrane that covers the flower bud, which falls off as the flower grows.  Native to Australia, this potent element has a myriad of health benefits and has been used for medicinal purposes for hundreds of years because of its antiseptic, antibacterial, and antifungal nature.

Benefits to skin


Its anti-inflammatory, antibacterial and analgesic properties make this powerful element a natural healer. When used topically, it provides the optimal environment and elements to repair and strengthen the complexion, helping clear up acne and prevent future breakouts.


Rich in 1,8 cineole, this active ingredient present in Eucalyptus Essential Oil is known for its antibacterial properties.

To this end, Eucalyptus oil will remove dead skin cells, clear dirt and dust from the pores, boost collagen production, and cleanse the skin from any traces of environmental origins that can contribute to breakouts, pigmentation and dull skin. The result is a complexion that is purer and healthier.


Eucalyptus oil also has a cooling sensation on the skin since it contains menthol, which is a natural numbing agent.


Eucalyptus Oil is known to moisturise the skin. Not only does it deliver an intense dose of hydration, but it also locks in moisture to help your complexion glow.
