Camellia oil is also commonly known as tea seed oil, as it is the essential oil from the seeds of the tea plant. While the leaves of the tea plant are commonly dried to produce tea, the seeds undergo a cold-pressing process to extract the concentrated oil. Thus, camellia oil benefits from many of the same antioxidant compounds as tea, but also has an extremely high level of unsaturated fats, as well as other minerals and nutrients.
Camellia oil contains high levels of oleic acid (more than 80%), as well as linoleic acid, alpha-linolenic acid, stearic acid, vitamin E, Calcium, Potassium, triterpenes, saponins, and squalene.
Camellia oil can help smooth rough patches of skin and lock in moisture, making this an ideal remedy for people whose skin is regularly exposed to the elements. It can also minimize the appearance of wrinkles and keep your skin feeling young and healthy. Camellia Oil is quickly absorbed into the skin and does not leave your skin feeling oily.
