Camellia Oil is a nutritive oil that is said to be the ancient beauty secret of the geishas.

The seeds from green, black, white and oolong tea leaves are harvested from Camellia oleifera and sometimes Camellia sinensis. These species are also popularly known as the Tea Plant. Like the teas made from these species, Camellia Oil exhibits exceptional antioxidant activity.

The fruit of the camellia consists of several small chambers, each playing host to a number of seeds within it. Camellia seeds contain between 40-50% of nutritive oil that is low in saturated fat.

Camellia Oil is a primarily monounsaturated oil that is a rich source of the essential fatty acid Linoleic Acid, other omega fatty acids plus Vitamin E and polyphenols.

Camellia Oil is often referred to as Tea Oil or Tea Seed Oil, but it should not be confused with the volatile essential oil of Tea Tree. Although the seeds and leaves contain caffeine, caffeine is a water soluble compound that is not present in Camellia Oil.

Comments: First time trying this oil. I plan on making lotion with it, but for now, I just rub a bit on and it feels amazing! Not greasy and soaks right in, leaving a soft feel after. Shipping was fast!

Comments: I am very impressed with the Camellia Seed Oil I ordered from FNWL. Someone gave me another brand before I ordered, and FNWL's quality was noticeably better. The Camellia Seed Oil is a light oil that is easily absorbed. It also doesn't have a strong bitter scent like other oils that are great for your skin. After a week I noticed my skin looked smoother and there was no irritation. The wrinkles are much less noticeable also.
