Sometimes called Green Tea Oil or Camellia Oil, Tsubaki oil has an outstanding moisture retaining ability and is one of the most rapidly absorbed plant oils. The unique make-up of the oil allows it to penetrate into the deepest layers of the skin, leaving it smooth and supple. The non-drying and non-clogging oil is rich in mono-saturated essential fatty acids. It is particularly high in oleic acid that exceeds the level of olive oil. Camellia oil contains vitamins, A, B, and E and various minerals.
