DESCRIPTION

Tsubaki oil has been used in Japan since the Edo period several hundred years ago. Well know locally as one of the beauty products used by the Geisha, it is now widely used for the skin and hair.

Rich in both Oleic and Linoleic acid, Tsubaki oil is an effective emollient helping to nourish the skin and hair.
It is quickly absorbed and permeates deep into lower layers of skin, promoting cell growth and assisting with support and flexibility.

Love it

Been using on my skin and hair and it's light and hydrating. Just use a tiny amount on the hair though - even though it's a light oil it can be easy to get carried away and then your hair will look greasy.

Only negative was when I transferred some to a clear glass bottle with a dropper, after a few months the inside of bottle was growing mold :( That was probably my fault as I was leaving it in the shower as an oil cleanser, I didn't have that problem with the oil left in the bottle. It would be handy if it came in a dropper bottle, using the one it comes with pours out too much.

I did lots of reading about this oil before I bought it and it lived up to my expectations. My sensitive skin doesn't like rosehip oil but tolerates this oil fine :) Also you can use it as a body oil, and it was nourishing for my nails too. I've attached a picture (although it's almost used up now!) so you can see the size of the 100mL bottle.

Facial Oil

Not as enamored with this oil, does not absorb well on my skin.
