DESCRIPTION

The "beauty secret" of the geishas of Japan, camellia has been recognised for centuries in Eastern Asia for its highly regenerative and restorative effects on the skin. Camellia oil is used in many skincare formulas and products, as well as shampoos, lotions, conditioners, scalp treatments, and after-sun care products. The oil is also added to products used to treat dry and damaged skin and hair, as well as being popular with aromatherapists and massage therapists.

Camellia oil is known for its excellent moisture-retaining ability, which makes it an effective moisturising and replenishing oil. it is suitable for sensitive and allergy-prone skin, absorbs quickly and easily, and leaves the skin looking and feeling smooth and supple. Camellia also possesses antioxidant, disinfectant, and germicidal properties.

Camellia is extremely rich in monosaturated fatty acids, containing more than 80% oleic acid. It is also rich in vitamins A, B and E, various minerals, and squalene, which is an important component of the skin's natural emollient system. Deficient levels of squalene can result in dry, sagging, and wrinkly skin.

Great product!

I didn't mix with anything and tried some on my face at night...big surprise next morning!! Not too light or heavy. Great with E.Oils. Prompt delivery. Very happy with this product. Thank you.

So versatile

Camellia oil is so versatile. Great as a hair and general body moisturiser. Works great as a shaving balm. Soothes psoriasis. And also great as a rust protector on woodworking hand tools like chisels and planes! My wife and I should be shareholders in a Camellia Oil company at the rate we use it :-)

My "go to" oil

This is one of my favourite oils for using on the face. I blend it with other oils or it can be used on its own. It is regenerative and great for dry, mature skin, protecting against moisture loss.

Camellia oil organic

A good light oil

Light fragrance that doesn't interfere with essential oils.

Makes skin and hair feel soft.
