Camellia japonica Skin Benefits:

Camellia japonica, also known as “Tsubaki,” is the Japanese native form of the plant Camellia. It is a rich source of antioxidants, vitamins, phytosqualene, and Omega-6 fatty acids. These ingredients can provide skin-enhancing benefits such as antioxidant protection and moisturizing properties.

Camellia japonica possess lipids that have excellent emollient, moisturizing properties. The Omega-6 fatty acids present in Camellia japonica oil are ideal for boosting skin-hydration, thus reducing the appearance of premature fine, dry lines. Additionally, using Camellia japonica for skin care purposes provides antioxidant protection that helps to neutralize damaging free-radicals that are constantly present throughout the environment. 1234
