Camellia Oil - Cert. Organic

Camellia Oil - Cert. Organic

Camellia is widely cultivated throughout China, where the species originated.  It also grows wild in the forests of China and Japan, by the banks of streams and the foothills of mountains. 

The rich skin-enhancing, moisturizing quality of camellia oil has been used for centuries in Japan and was highly valued by the vain geisha women of history whose porcelain complexion has become legendary.  This nutritive cosmeseutical oil was, for centuries, their secret. It was also used in japan as a hair smoothing and conditioning oil and is responsible for keeping the enameled smoothness of the geisha, and samurai hairstyle.

Oleic acid is the primary component of the fatty acid content of the camellia oil. It is also rich in omega-3, 6 and 9, plus vitamin E and polyphenols. 

Organic camellia oil penetrates into deepest layers of the skin because of its unique make-up. It is rich in plant collagen, with over 84% of Mono-unsaturated fat, and is the most skin friendly oil among all plant oils.  The oil is rich in oleic acid and vitamin A, B and E and minerals. Its unique active constituent, squalene, is an important component of the skin’s natural emollient system which prevents dry skin and premature aging. It also restores correct pH balance.

Camellia oil is a natural antioxidant and is suitable to all skin types.
