Camellia Oleifera Seed Oil (Olej Kameliowy)

Camellia Oleifera



Also known as tea oil, camellia oil has a fatty acid profile that is similar to olive oil, containing a lot of oleic acids (a monounsaturated fat that is quickly absorbed by the skin). The oil is moisturising, conditioning and soothing and is a rich source of antioxidant vitamins A and E.

The plant genus Camellia originates from East Asia and counts many popular plant varieties. Tea leaves are harvested from聽Camellia sinensis,聽Camellia japonica聽hybrids make wonderful ornamental plants that blossom rose-like flowers in the winter and finally,聽Camellia oleifera聽produces seeds that are pressed for their oil.

The oil has been a staple cooking ally in East Asia for centuries, especially in China, Japan and Korea. It is also prized there as a cosmetic ingredient that moisturises and rejuvenates the skin with a light feel. In addition, it is said to counteract the effects of hard water on the hair which makes it a good conditioner.
