Frequently Asked Questions

Frequently Asked Questions

1. What makes your camellia oil better than others?

    Our camellia oil is JAPONICA. Other camellia oils are either "sinensis" or "oleifera" which are much cheaper camellia          oils. Camellia sinensis is where we get green tea (matcha) from and oleifera is used for cooking with. Camellia japonica

    is what is known in Japan as "Tsubaki" and is known as the "Best kept secret in Asia" for skin care. It is much superior to

    sinensis and oleifera in terms of absorption, fatty acid and nutrient content. It's what the Japanese Geishas used to

    achieve their porcelain-like skin!


2. How is your camellia flower facial water different from other mists?


    Other mists are mostly made of regular distilled water and a little rose water, but our mist is made of 43% camellia 

    flower water, rose water and a mixture of different plant extracts. Not a drop of just plain water.  This means better PH     balance, more anti-inflammatory properties, better hydration, antibacterial properties, more antioxidants and overall         more nutrients. You're never paying for just everyday water.

3. Is camellia oil okay for acne skin?

    Absolutely! Camellia oil is great for those suffering from acne as it has anti-microbial, cicatrizant (promotes scar       

    healing), anti-inflammatory, and mild astringent properties. Camellia oil's molecular composition is very similar to the

    oil in our skin so it never clogs pores. Oils have a comedogenic rating from 1 to 5. The higher the rating, the greater the

    tendency for clogging pores. Camellia oil's comedogenic rating is 1, therefore, it doesn't clog pores.

4. What's the difference between Camellia Essence oil and Camellia Magic Oil ?

     Camellia Essence oil has been filtered 12 times resulting in a high quality oil. Camellia Magic oil has been filtered an           additional 4 more times for a total of 16 times. One thing to note is that the filtering time for the last 4 times takes as        long as the initial 12 times. This results in a premium quality oil, which absorbs faster that the Essence oil and is                  virtually odorless. This leads to quicker results and highly favored by those who are concerned about the smell of oil.        Although Camellia Essence oil is obviously great on your face, it is preferred for use on the body and hair, since a                larger amount is needed. Camellia Magic oil on the other hand is recommended for use mostly on the face since it is          more costly than the Essence oil.
