Did you know that Camellia Seed Oil was traditionally used by Japanese geishas to nourish their skin and brighten their complexion? At Three Ships, we use two different Camellia species (Camellia Japonica and Camellia Oleifera) for their antioxidant and moisturizing properties.
Skin Benefits of Camellia Seed Oil
- Works as an emollient: Emollients moisturize and soften the skin by supporting the skin’s natural lipid barrier. This helps to give your skin a healthy, plump complexion.
- Renews skin as an antioxidant: Antioxidants help protect the skin from free radicals which are everyday environmental stressors such as UV exposure, pollution, and smoking that can negatively impact our skin. The vitamin E and phenolic compounds in Camellia Seed Oil help to protect the skin from further stress.
- Deeply moisturizing: Fatty acids such as oleic acid, palmitic acid, linoleic acid, and stearic acid are found in both species of Camellia Seed Oils. These fatty acids help combat dryness to keep the skin feeling moisturized. Camellia Japonica is especially effective in promoting collagen production by locking in moisture.
