It’s no secret that we adore and focus on Australian native botanicals in our skincare, but we explore further afield too! When formulating our entire range, we also searched around the world for the most potent and age-defying ingredients from nature for maximum results… Camellia Seed Oil that is native to Japan was an anti-ageing ingredient that we just couldn’t miss out on!
What is Camellia Seed Oil?
Camellia Oleifera is a beautiful shrub, with shiny leaves and rose-like flowers (‘Tsubaki flower’ in Japan). The oil is extracted from the seeds of the plant via a cold-press method so there’s no heat involved in the process, ensuring the vitamins and antioxidants are preserved. The Geisha have used this oil for centuries, it's their beauty secret for keeping their skin youthful and glowing.
The luxurious properties of Camellia Seed Oil
Aside from the multitude of benefits for our skin health, Camellia Seed Oil also has a divine consistency that elevates the luxurious texture of our products. The oil is silky and lightweight, and in fact its molecular weight is similar to the natural oil of our skin, so it sinks into the skin right away without leaving a greasy residue.
