Powerful Skin Compound is an herbal product advertised as assisting with skin problems like fungi and infections. The company behind this product is Mountain Rose Herbs.

Mountain Rose Herbs produces a lot of herbal formulations for both cosmetic and medicinal uses. In addition, it is a large distributor of bulk herbs and spices. It works primarily with organic farmers from the United States however it also acquires some ingredients from overseas, for instance from Asia. The company is trying to grow while maintaining its values of sustainable agricultural practices and fair trade.

Mountain Rose Herbs claims that Powerful Skin Compound can help in the treatment of athlete’s foot, skin infections and irritations. The salve is based on tea tree oil and other herbs which have been infused in olive oil and beeswax. The product is entirely natural (it actually contains certified organic or sustainable harvested herbs), it does not have artificial perfumes or other chemicals. According to the manufacturer, Powerful Skin Compound is supposed to help people as well as animals which have skin rashes. As the container is small enough to fit in a pocket, you may carry it with you while you are travelling.


1) Quick Overview

Powerful Skin Compound is an herbal formula which contains tea tree essential oil, frequently recommended for skin conditions, as well as other herbs that could be effective for skin disorders although they are more often used for stomach problems and colds (like sage), gastrointestinal cleansing (black walnut), or for nervous system disorders and menstrual flow problems (mugwort).

Based on anecdotal evidence, tea tree oil is frequently used for skin problems like infections, staph, and acne. Moreover, there are also cosmetic products based on tea tree oil that are recommended for dandruff. Some people use undiluted tea tree oil as mouthwash.

According to test tubes, tea tree oil has antibacterial astringent properties. Therefore some specialists recommend it for athlete’s foot, lice, eczema and skin infections. It seems it may even be applied topically on dogs with skin rashes. As for side effects tea tree oil is considered a safe herb.

The Mountain Rose Herbs formulation is not evaluated by the Food and Drug Administration in terms of quality or safety so its effectiveness cannot in fact be guaranteed.

Supplements also routinely use Essential Oils for Brain Health, which can help with stress and anxiety.

3) Does Powerful Skin Compound Work?

Powerful Skin Compound is an herbal balm based on a mix of herbs used for skin conditions like tea tree and sage. Tea tree essential oil is obtained from the leaves of the tea tree. Its main ailment claim is about treating skin conditions. Also, according to traditional medicine, it can also be used as mouthwash, for scalp conditions (dandruff, fungi, bacteria, lice) and oral yeast infections. Specialists have discovered that tea tree possesses antiseptic activity. Therefore it can be recommended for staph infections, eczema (including canine eczema) and other skin disorders. It also has astringent and antibacterial properties and thus may be used for cuts, bites, and acne. Some specialists also recommend tea tree oil for athlete’s foot fungus.

Tea tree is considered a safe alternative to antibiotics for skin infections. People who develop eczema due to specific chemicals in cosmetic products are sometimes recommended by specialists to replace their formulas with others based on tea tree oil. This oil is considered safe, as side effects have rarely been reported.

The compound marketed by Mountain Rose does not benefit from an FDA evaluation consequently the label mentions that it is not intended to treat or prevent diseases. The producer does not mention side effects either and does not clear details on its website as to the maximum dose per day.

We have not found online customer testimonials about Powerful Skin Compound. In our view, one potential explanation would be that there are not many retailers selling this formula online.

Final Thoughts

8) Final Thoughts on Powerful Skin Compound

Powerful Skin Compound is an herbal formulation that is supposed to help in alleviating symptoms associated with skin fungi (like athlete’s foot), irritations and skin infections in general. This herbal balm might indeed be effective given the multiple properties of the phyto-chemical compounds found in tea tree essential oil. Nonetheless customer satisfaction testimonials are quite rare, which is a drawback.

We recommend you discuss with your doctor if you are currently under medication. Herbs have been used for a very long time and have generally proved to be effective; however, many of them are also known to interact with other drugs.

I’ve applied Powerful Skin Compound on a wound I got when I fell off the bike and it worked quite fast.

I always have chapped hands during the winter. Powerful Skin Compound has alleviated my symptoms although not entirely.
