Many other disinfectant agents are toxic or cause damage to skin when used over a prolonged period of time.
The disinfectant ability of Melaleuca alternifolia oil which contains at least 37% terpenols and less than 7% cineol proves its effectiveness.
Clinical tests have demonstrated the disinfectant properties this particular Melaleuca oil has - T36-C5 kills organisms completely such as Staph Aureus, E.Coli, Bacteria Spores, Fungi, Viruses and Candida Albicans.
The pure oil of Melaleuca is entirely natural and the extract proportion of each of the 48 known compounds produces the most effective blend. In order for any product to give repeatable and expected results, the oil must be consistent from batch to batch. With that in mind, it is strongly recommended that anyone purchasing products labeled as or containing oil of Melaleuca do so from a reputable dealer that has its source of oil and quality of oil well documented.
