This very precious oil has been recognised for centuries in Eastern Asia for its highly restorative and rejuvenating effect on skin.
Camellia oil is used in many skincare formulas and is suited for all skin types including sensitive and allergy-prone skin.
It has outstanding moisture-retaining ability and is rapidly absorbed. It penetrates into the deepest layers of the skin, leaving it smooth and supple. Camellia oil is very rich in monosaturated essential fatty acids.
It is particularly high in oleic acid and exceeds the level of olive oil.
Camellia oil contains vitamins, A, B, and E and various minerals and has an active constituent known as squalene, which is an important component of the skin’s natural emollient system. A deficiency of squalene can result in dry skin and premature ageing, resulting in wrinkles and sagging skin.

Camellia oil is an excellent emollient and wonderful skin moisturiser. It protects skin from drying out while replenishing vital nutrients. It smoothes rough and flaky skin, and soothes and calms easily irritated skin.
Used regularly, it will help protect from age spots and increased pigmentation. Used around the eyes and mouth, it softens wrinkles and tiny maturity lines.

Put a few drops in your hand and massage in with your fingertips.

For men, camellia oil makes a wonderful skin soother after shaving. Applied regularly it will keep the skin conditioned and aids in preventing shaving burns.

Interesting note: Camellia oil is also traditionally used to protect Japanese woodworking tools and cutlery from corrosion.
