Japanese and Chinese women rely on camellia Oil for hair care
In Japan camellia oil has traditionally been used for hair care. The oil has been very widely used for conditioning and hair styling, even for the setting of Sumo wrestlers’ hair. Camellia oil can improve elasticity and also helps to soothe a dry scalp, the oil is absorbed by the scalp without leaving any oily residue and its excellent moisturizing effect is long lasting. Applying camellia oil to your hair can promote growth and repair damaged, brittle hair. There are many ways to use camellia oil for hair care. You can massage a few drops of the into you hair and leave it overnight. Or you can apply the oil liberally onto your hair and shampoo and condition in the usual way. For deep conditioning, apply lots of camellia oil, wrap your head with a warm wet towel, leave for an hour or so.
Colourless camellia oil is usefull as a sunscreen because it has a strong ultraviolet absorption blocking attributes. Ultraviolet radiation is defined as UVA and UVB. UVA has a long wavelength. It penetrates the skin and can cause wrinkles and sagging. UVB has a short wavelength and is more powerful, causing sunburn, it is also causes blotches, freckles, and melanomas. Camellia oil can offer protection from UVB but not from UVA.
Camellia oil is composed of at least 85% Oliec acid, a mono -unsaturated fatty acid. The actual percentage of Oleic acid is dependent on the quality of the oil, but in any case it very rarely drops below 82%.
Studies have shown that Oleic acid has unpararalled penetration power, capable of permeating deeply into the lower layers of stratum corneum to greatly enhance the beneficial effects of collagen and elsatin. Oleic acid has been identified as an excellent transdermal carrier of cell rebuilding nutrients.

Because Camellia Oil can be applied to broken skin without any problem and because it effectively softens the skin and helps with the regeneration of healthy skin. It quickly and very gentle soothes the irritation caused by the dry, scaly skin associated with these conditions.
I unfortunately, have personal experience of the intense discomfort caused by eczema. Camellia Oil is the only thing that I can apply to my highly irritated and irritating parts, without it stinging the broken skin caused by scratching. Everyone else I know who suffers from Eczema and or Psoriasis have been delighted by the relief Camellia Oil provides.

Camellia Oil is derived by cold pressing the seed of the flower camellia oleifera native to South East Asia, China and now abundant in Japan and present in many parts of Europe . Often referred to as Tree Seed Oil, it is not to be confused with Tea Tree Oil which is an essential oil obtained from the leaves of Melaleuca alternifolia, a plant native to Australia.
