Great for Hair and Skin
This is a relatively light, slightly yellow oil that absorbs really quickly. I use it in formulas that are moisturizing but which need to absorb quickly so as not to be oily. I have also used it as a carrier oil for topical medicinal applications of essential oils for the same reason. This is a really unique oil that has a valuable place in my oils arsenal.

Quickly became one of my favorite oils!
I started using this oil in my scrubs and now in my soaps. I love the radiance it gives to the skin! I just can't seem to ever order enough. This is the best place I have found to buy it.

Green Tea of Oils
Camellia is the green tea of carrier oils. I found this oil to be light and it makes a nice facial oil. It has antioxidant properties and is easy to blend with other oils. It will also make a nice addition to face/hand creams.

Best Quality Camellia Seed Oil Available in the US
I first tried this oil in Japan and was instantly hooked. It is a very light oil that is moisturizing instead of greasy. Since returning to the states, I have searched for it online, and was shocked to find it overpriced and often degraded with other product mixes. Camden Grey Camellia seed oil is hands down the best quality you can find in the US at a reasonable price. It is the only quality that is comparable to the native stock you'd find in Japan.

Try it, you'll love it
This is excellent for razor burn and sun burn. I also use it for my homemade facial cream and lotions. I highly recommend it and all the other oils and butters. I'm so glad I found Camden-Grey, excellent products. This is the second time I ordered from them and will continue to do business.
