Camellia Seed Oil

Description – Also called Tea Oil, it is extracted from the same trees that are used to make white tea. The tree blossoms all through the winter, even in the snow, giving a beautiful display of pink to red flowers. The oil has been used for beautifying the skin, hair and nails for centuries in Japan and was much favoured by Geishas. Unlike the tea, the oil does not contain caffeiene which is water soluble and only found in the extract. Sinensis is the variety used for green tea. It has different properties and is normally used as an extract.
