Camellia(Latin: Camellia oleifera)
Camellia oil has been used for centuries by Geishas of Kyoto to clean and moisturise their skin leaving it supple and nourished. We decided to include camellia oil in several Zelens formulations because it provides multiple benefits to the skin. Camellia oil has excellent protecting, emollient and moisturising properties due to a high amount of omega-9 fatty acid (oleic acid) and squalene. It protects skin from harmful UV light by forming a thin shield against strong sun rays. Camellia oil has been used as a natural illuminant to help reduce the appearance of age spots and boost skin radiance.
