Cherished Camellia Oil comes from the winter-blooming flower, Tsubaki, known as the Rose of Winter. Camellia's succulent seeds are cold pressed to reveal an elegant elixir of endless moisture. Camellia replenishes lipids, regulates sebaceous secretions, and purifies pores. Thirsty winter skin is reborn with this effective emollient that revives elasticity and reduces dry lines. It is also a time-tested treasure of Japanese geishas, who traditionally used the oil to keep their long tresses shiny and soft, to remove make-up, and to moisturize skin hair and nails.
