Our Camellia oil is produced by infusing Camellia sinensis leaf extract in pure Sunflower Oil (Helianthus annuus).
Camellia sinensis is an evergreen shrub native to East Asia, Southeast Asia and the Indian Subcontinent. Its leaves and buds are used to produce tea and it is now cultivated in tropical and subtropical regions across the world.
Camellia sinensis leaf extract is commonly referred to as green tea extract within the cosmetics industry and is used in a wide array of personal care products including anti-ageing treatments, sunscreens, foundation, shampoos and conditioners.
Green tea extract helps to soften, soothe, moisturise, and condition the skin. It is rich in antioxidant and anti-inflammatory polyphenols that protect against environmental and free radical damage and help reduce redness and inflammation. It also contains catechins that are thought to absorb UV radiation and protect against sun damage.
Sunflower Seed Oil is rich in Vitamins A, D and E.and essential fatty acids that strengthen the skin's barrier and seal in moisture.
Our Camellia infused oil is ideal for facial massage. It can help to improve the general texture, tone and strength of the skin, and is particularly helpful for reducing signs of ageing and soothing dry, irritated or inflamed skin conditions such as eczema, psoriasis, rosacea or acne. It can also help soothe a dry, flaky scalp and promote healthy hair growth.
Facial Oil – for mature/scarred/inflamed/sensitive skin
Mix 30ml Camellia Oil, 2 drops Rose, 2 German Chamomile, 2 Patchouli and 2 Neroli. Shake well and massage in to the skin following cleansing and toning in the evening. Or use as a face mask - apply a thin layer and leave on for 15 minutes. Remove any excess oil by blotting with tissues.
Deep Hair Conditioning Treatment – for dry/ damaged hair
Use 20-40ml Camellia Oil – depending on hair length. To 40ml add 8 drops Ylang Ylang, 4 Roman Chamomile, 4 Sandalwood and 4 Geranium (half the essential oil quantities for 20ml). This treatment is ideal for dry hair or scalp where hair has lost its body and shine. Combine all the ingredients well and then warm the oil. Massage into the scalp and smooth down the full length of the hair. Cover hair with a plastic shower cap, leave on for 15 – 30 minutes, then wash and condition as normal.
