    Great price for Camellia oil. It is light, absorbs quickly into skin. I use it in almost a face oil recipes. I also use it on the roots of my daughters' bi-racial hair. It works wonders in the winter on their hair.
    Wow for hair

    This camellia seed oil does an excellent job of quenching the thirst of the drier parts of my face and never clogs my pores. It also serves as an effective carrier in my varicose vein blend. It is also known as THE beauty secret in Asia.

    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!

    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

    E. Stevens (Dallas, TX, US) | February 7th, 2011
    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.

    Thanks for browsing thru this section which contains answers to many questions that are often asked of us. Here we explain where to locate CofA and SDS for a product, how we dispense and package our products, how products should be stored, basic terminology and the wait time for bulk products to ship from our warehouse. FYI: We're closed on Fridays.

    Certificate of Analysis (CofA) and Safety Data Sheet (SDS). We publish on our website those documents for most of our products, some products don't provide either because the product doesn't require it. In this same section where you're at now, look to the tab to the left titled Documents, click on it and that's where you'll find either document for the product you seek. If you do not find the document you require, please email us at so we can research further.

    BULK ITEMS: When a customer adds a bulk item to the cart, the customer’s immediately shown on the screen how many number of days should be allowed for the bulk product to arrive at our warehouse. If the bulk item happens to be in stock, we’ll ship sooner than the customer would expect. As we emerge from Covid, logistics operations are not yet back to normal, what used to arrive at our warehouse in 3 days now takes much longer. Should a vendor inform us the ordered product will take longer than what’s mentioned on our website we’ll email the customer with the latest information.


    EO = essential oil

    FO = fragrance oil



    Essential oils: in 1/32 oz. to 1/4 oz...amber glass vials with orifice reducers. ½ oz. to 2 amber glass bottles with white caps and Eurodroppers...3 to 4 oz. in amber glass bottles with black caps and without orifice reducers...7 oz. in aluminum bottles...15 oz. in amber glass bottles with black caps...10 & 25 lbs. in HDPE plastic containers with wide mouths although, occasionally, 25 lbs. may be dispensed in factory-issued metal containers with pouring spouts.

    28 lbs. of carrier oils and other liquids are dispensed in individual HDPE plastic gallon containers with handles, each holds the purchased net weight of liquid.

    30+ lbs. of carrier oils, other liquids, soft butters, Castile gel and other products are dispensed in plastic HDPE pails w/metal handles & pouring spouts in the lid; those products may remain inside the pails indefinitely when properly stored. After Covid, we reserve the right to use any packaging/dispensing container available to us and not mentioned above because it continues to be difficult many times to restock the same packaging container or material used in the past.

    NOTE: An EO may safely remain inside an aluminum container for up to 3 months, but if storing longer than 3 months the oil should be transferred to amber glass. Fragrances and carrier oils up to 8 lbs. may remain inside HDPE plastic bottles indefinitely. If the customer at any time feels more comfortable transferring a product to glass this should be done. ALL PRODUCTS ARE DISPENSED BY WEIGHT, THUS, SOME CONTAINERS MAY BE FILLED HIGHER THAN OTHERS DEPENDING ON THE WEIGHT AND VISCOSITY OF EACH PRODUCT.

    Raw materials/ingredients are dispensed by weight. Many customers ask how many ounces in a pound, there are 16 ounces in one pound. These are not fluid ounces, they are ounces by weight.

    HOW TO STORE: EOs, FOs and BUTTERS should be stored in tightly-sealed containers away from direct light and heat. Some EOs could be highly flammable, keep away from open flames. Keep all liquids and powders you purchase from Camden-Grey tightly capped and away from the reach of children, the elderly or infirm and pets. Refrigerating butters could adversely affect the consistency of the butter, please join our Forum if you need to learn how to handle, work with and store products.
