In celebration of its launch, Tea MD™ Skincare, an all-natural tea tree oil based product line created by a board certified physician to help prevent and control adult acne and blemish prone skin, is gifting its daily facial cleanser to honorees at the 35th Annual News & Documentary Emmy awards on September 30, 2014 in New York City.
Springfield, OH, September 26, 2014 – By the time a patient suffering with severe acne visits the offices of Dr. Sameer Ismailjee, an experienced infectious diseases expert and clinical professor specializing in treating complicated infections such as those affecting the skin, they’ve exhausted over-the-counter treatments and routine dermatological approaches. A proponent of natural skincare when possible, Dr. Ismailjee began formulating a product for patients based on tea tree oil, an extract from a plant native to Australia. With its natural antibacterial and soothing properties, tea tree oil has been used medically for hundreds of years and can be an excellent alternative to harsh synthetic chemicals for treating adult acne and teen acne.
The positive results convinced Dr. Ismailjee to start a commercial product line – and Tea MD™ Skincare has officially launched with sales to other medical establishments, spas and to consumers via a website at www.teamdskincare.com.
“I tell people if you want clear, smooth skin, it does not have to be complicated. A few simple tweaks to a daily skincare routine can really help. I believe natural products should always be the first step versus putting harsh chemicals on the body’s largest organ – your skin,” Ismailjee said. “However, for those suffering with acne, it’s a different story. Acne can be one of the most embarrassing and stressful skin conditions for both teens and adults. We live in a world where appearances matter, and someone suffering with acute acne is usually desperate to find the right combination of topical and prescriptive treatments.”
“After treating patients and evaluating the results, as well as the side effects, of both over-the-counter and prescriptive products on the market, I felt there was a real opportunity to create a line based on the powerful properties of natural tea tree oil. But tea tree oil alone on skin can be too harsh so my mission was to devise a gentle, yet effective solution. I also wanted an alternative to the expensive chemical-based prescriptive approaches. We spent almost a year working with leading chemists and formulators to create the exact right blend of natural ingredients that will help people have healthy skin,” Ismailjee adds.
Tea MD™’s first product, a daily facial cleanser, sold online for just $29, or $22 with a monthly subscription, has been shown to improve the appearance of inflamed acne, pimples and other blemishes.
