Camellia Seed Oil, often referred to as tea seed oil, is extracted from the seeds of the Camellia oleifera plant, which is native to China and Japan. Not to be confused with tea tree oil, camellia seed oil has a rich history, especially in Japan, where it's known as "Tsubaki oil". Used traditionally by Japanese women to nourish and condition their hair, skin, and nails, this luxurious oil has been a beauty secret for centuries. The oil boasts a high content of oleic acid and is also rich in antioxidants, vitamins A, B, and E, and plant collagen. Its lightweight and fast-absorbing nature make it a favored choice for skin care. Camellia seed oil deeply moisturizes without feeling greasy, restores skin elasticity, and provides a protective barrier to retain moisture. The oil's antioxidative properties help in combating free-radical damage, thus preventing signs of premature aging. Additionally, its anti-inflammatory qualities soothe irritated skin, making it suitable for sensitive and acne-prone skin types. For hair, camellia seed oil imparts shine and softness, and its traditional use also includes treating scars and stretch marks. As global interest in botanical beauty solutions grows, camellia seed oil continues to gain popularity, bridging the age-old beauty traditions of East Asia with contemporary skincare formulations.
