Top Benefits of Camellia Oil for Your Skin
It has a silky texture and is full of fatty acids that nourish and hydrate your skin. This makes it an excellent choice for dry and/or mature skin types in need of replenishment and hydration.
Fights Existing Signs of Aging
The vitamin E in camellia seed oil doubles as a protective agent and a skin rejuvenator. Camellia oil is also believed to contain the plant form of vitamin A, which may decrease the appearance of multiple signs of aging, like wrinkles, and may help prevent the breakdown of collagen (a very important anti-aging).
Absorbs Quickly & Feels Natural
Though often compared to olive oil, camellia oil also has a similar structure and weight to your skin’s own natural oil. Along with fatty acids and vitamin E, it contains squalene, which is a key component of sebum, the natural substance that protects and locks moisture into skin.
Helps Protect Your Skin from Sun Damage
Antioxidants are one of the best defenses against this type of damage. And camellia seed oil contains several, including potent vitamin E and numerous polyphenols. Both of these have shown an ability to help prevent photodamage, which in turn can slow skin aging.
Calms Inflammation and Irritation
Certain fatty acids found in Camellia are also beneficial for calming skin inflammation. In fact, some of the same fatty acids in camellia oil have shown anti-inflammatory and wound healing effects in previous studies.
Softens and Smooths Skin
Camellia Oil works by filling in the gaps between skin cells. By sealing up these cracks, camellia oil helps prevent water loss and makes your skin look much less dry and flaky. As a bonus, it also smooths and softens your skin, giving it a youthful glow.
