Cliradex® is the only commercially available product that is formulated with 4-Terpineol, the most important ingredient found in Tea Tree Oil. Most eye-care professionals recommend a number of ocular hygiene solutions, many of which may contain some form of Tea Tree Oil.
Tea Tree Oil (TTO), the essential oil derived from the native plant, melaleuca alternifolia, is characterized by 15 major components. Scientific studies have shown that 4-Terpineol, or Terpinen-4-ol (T4O), is the most important component found in TTO. This is because some of TTO’s ingredients are ineffective and their relationship is antagonistic, meaning the efficacy of one component is canceled out by the presence of another component.
The Cliradex line of products are a natural, preservative-free way to cleanse the eyelashes, eyelids, and face and help relieve symptoms associated with Demodex, blepharitis, Meibomian Gland Dysfunction (MGD), rosacea, dry eye, Chalazia and other lid-margin diseases.
