Camellia Seed Oil has the latin name Camellia Oleifera, it is a pale yellow to clear liquid, which has no scent.
Camellia grows as a shrub in the mountains of South East Asia. Our oil is certified organic and the oil is cold pressed from the seeds of the camellia oleifera plant. Camellia oleifera is often confused with camellia sinensis, which is a tea plant and the source of Black and Green tea. They are very similar plants but from different species of camellia.
We selected Camellia Seed Oil as the best oil, after conducting a lot research for our Super Nourishing Organic Dry Skin Face Oil. It truly is an amazing oil, no wonder it has been used by women in Eastern Asia for centuries as it has highly restorative and rejuvenating effects on the skin.
Why is it good for us?
Camellia seed oil is able to protect the skin from drying out as it contains approximately 86% oleic acid which retains moisture and is so perfect for dry skin. This is the highest content of oleic acid in all the oils we tested.
Oleic acid is also anti-inflammatory for the skin, reducing any redness or tight feeling.
Camellia seed oil is full of anti-aging antioxidants as it contains polyphenols which are known to inhibit free radical reactions
It also absorbs quickly into the skin without leaving an oily residue due to its low viscosity and the molecular weight of the oil being almost a match to skin.
