Camellia Seed (also known as tea seed) is a lush option for skin, hair, and nail formulations. Astringent and not likely to clog pores, its more drying qualities are ideal for oily skin types. And with its softening and restoring capabilities, Camellia Seed can be the perfect assistant in supporting supple, healthy skin. We’ll just call it silk in a bottle.
Also said to be strengthening to the hair, Camellia Seed can help restore a healthy shine to your locks and is a perfect addition to scalp and hair masks for those whose skin may produce more natural oils.
