Best Hair Oil
I started using this lightweight oil for my hair oil formulations and am very very happy with the results. The oils is light feeling, and light colored, and absorbs quickly into the hair shaft. It penetrates the follicle and forms a barrier. It has been used for years by Japanese women in their beauty regime. This is one of my favorite oils and I strongly recommend it as a hair treatment.
I'm turning Japanese, I really think so!
I learned about Camellia oil from my Japanese aunt (my uncle was in the Navy and met & married her on one of his tours in Okinawa). She's always been one of my favorite people because she's just so interesting. Well, one day we were sitting around talking and i asked her how she kept her skin looking so young and luminous (she's almost 70 and I kid you not, she looks like she's in her 40s). She told me a beauty secret that "every Japanese woman" must know...Camellia oil, plain and simple. From that moment, I started my search for an inexpensive but good quality Camellia oil to use on my face (I'm 42 an definitely not getting any younger!). I was extremely pleased to find that Camden-Grey not only carried Camellia oil but that it was also priced amazing low. After reading all the reviews I knew i had to have some. I purchased a 2 oz bottle as well as an amber glass bottle to store it in. When it arrived, I poured the majority into the amber bottle, added a bit of the gardenia oil I also purchased from Camden-Grey (Ah-May-Zing!). I meted out about 7 drops in my hands and then applied to my face. Those 7 drops were enough to massage onto my entire face so, yes, a little goes a long way. This oil is so beautifully light and it absorbed into my skin quickly. It's been a week and I can see results already! It will not reverse time and eliminate wrinkle but it does soften exisitng wrinkles. It also appears to have evened out my skin tone (I kid you not!) and it has also brightened my complexion, imo. I also added what was left in the original bottle to my body lotion and my extremely dry skin drinks it up AND I also used it (sparingly) in my very thick and unruly wavy hair. I LOVE the transformation! My hair is less frizzy, softer and my wave is more defined all without looking greasy or crunchy. Ancient Japanese secret is now a staple in my "beauty regimen". Thanks, Aunt Kuniko & Camden-Grey!
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.
You NEED to try this!
I am using this oil in a facial cleansing oil mix & neat as a facial moisturizer & I am loving it. This is a thin & fluid oil, pale gold in color, with the faintest of scents that registers to my nose as powdery. It feels very light on the skin & feels light even when generously applied. It spreads easily. I can see possibly using it as a facial cleanser all by itself. When applied sparingly, drop by drop, it is quickly absorbed & creates a wonderfully soft & smooth velvety texture. The effect really is remarkable in how immediate & pronounced it is -- I have to say that it's been a long long long time since my skin actually looked "luminous" without makeup. Huzzah!
