Camellia oil has been called the Japanese geisha’s secret elixir. Geishas strove for flawless, youthful looking skin and it’s said that this miracle oil had a little something to do with their ageless appearance!
What is Camellia Oil?
Camellia oil comes from the seeds of Camellia sinensis, the plant from which all the tea is made. It has loads of valuable properties and nutritional powers.
What are the beauty benefits?
There are SO many benefits to using camellia oil. Here are a few of our favorites:
- Like green tea it’s a great antioxidant, helping to soothe skin and fight damage. In fact, camellia oil contains more antioxidants than almost any other botanical oil!
- The anti-aging properties protect the skin from environmental free radicals.
- It’s an amazing moisturizer that’s light, smooth, and luxurious on your skin (plus non-greasy – yes!!).
- Camellia oil has a comedogenic rating of 1, which means it won’t clog pores and is a super skin softener.
Camellia oil is found in not only one, but two of our nourishing beauty products! In fact we could say it’s a superstar ingredient.
