The Beauty Benefits of Camellia Oil
Transform your Skin and Hair with Camellia Oil
Switching to pure organic oils is not an easy decision, especially if you are used to applying toner, serum, nightly cream, and advanced treatment before going to bed and this is your I-swear-by-it beauty ritual. No wonder, the idea of finding oil, potent enough to replace them all, may sound unreal to some of you. But today I am going to tell you a story from the far East, that I believe, will make you change your mind.
Camellia Seed Oil, also known as The Beauty Secret of the Geishas (or simply Tea oil) is extracted from Camellia Oleifera – an evergreen shrub with shiny leaves and rose-like flowers. The oil is obtained by cold pressing of the seeds of the plant – no heat is involved in the process, thus all properties of the extract are fully preserved. The oil has remarkable skin restorative and hair reviving properties, which is why it’s been used by the Japanese women for decades and it is still one of the most treasured beauty oils in the Land of the Rising Sun. And not only this – Camellia oil has cholesterol-lowering, analgesic, neuroprotective, anti-diabetes, and anti-allergic properties. But enough about its health benefits, let’s move to the “beauty part.
Camellia oil for Beautiful, Healthy Skin
We all hate those tiny (and not-so-tiny) wrinkles that seem to pop up out of nowhere, on a regular basis. And if there was one thing that could help us slow the process of aging down this would be…the Holy Grail! Let me share a secret – I think I have found the Holy Grail.
Camellia oil is rich in vitamin A, B and E, polyphenols, and mono-saturated essential fatty acids – omega 3,6,9 (oleic acid being dominant). This cocktail of powerful bioactive components has the ability to penetrate the skin with ease, without clogging the pores or leaving greasy residues, which makes it ideal for both dry/aging skin and oily acne prone skin. Camellia oil stands out as one of the botanical oils with the highest content of naturally occurring antioxidants, and as we all know, these tiny magical molecules play a key role in the prevention of premature aging. Another impressive characteristic of the oil is the fact that it contains phytosqualen – natural component that has similar structure to the fat your skin produces (the sebum). Phytasualens make the oil especially great for dry skin, because it restores the disrupted lipid barrier, helping the skin regenerate on its own. Not only this – Camellia oil has outstanding water retaining properties – it hydrates and nourishes, leaving your face supple, smooth, and glowing. Holy Grail, isn’t it?
Camellia oil for Strong, Shiny Hair
Thinking about changing your hair serum? I have the thing you are looking for – true, multi-purpose miraculous liquid (free from nasty chemicals!). When applied to the hair, Camellia oil forms a thin shield that protects from the strong sun rays. Not only the oil reduces the UV-induced damage, preserving the protein structure of your hair, but it also prevents water from evaporating, keeping your locks hydrated. Being rich in fatty acids, the oil works wonders as a pre-shampoo leave-on treatment for both the scalp and the lengths. It conditions and revives, adding incredible shine and softness to the hair.
Last but not least, let’s not forget to mention that Camellia oil it’s natural and safe – good for you and good for the environment. Because this matters. Your skin, your hair, and your body will appreciate it.
