WHAT IS IT
Camelia is a member of the Theaceae family. It grows from southern Japan as far as Korea, southern China and the surrounding areas. In the first half of the eighteenth century, two species, C. japonica and C. sinensis, were discovered, but almost 300 have been found since, originating from a small number of natural species and their subsequent hybridisation.
Camellia Sinensis is largely known for its use in production of tea, whereas Camellia Oleifera has always been used in cosmetics and food and the oil is extracted from its seeds. Several varieties were imported to Europe around the eighteenth century and their cultivation led to new varieties which spread rapidly from Europe to America, Australia and South Africa.
It is a slow-growing evergreen shrub, with shiny green leaves and flowers ranging from red to pink and white in colour. Camellias have always been a symbol of elegance and refinement and were once considered as genuine good-luck charms to offer to the gods.
Frutttonero pure Camellia oil is formed 90% of poly and mono unsaturated fatty acids, with a high content of polyphenols and natural antioxidants, and helps fight common blemishes such as marks.
Rich in vitamin A, it timulates production of collagen, which gives the skin tone and elasticity. It also contains a large amount of vitamin E, vital in neutralising reactivity of the free radicals that damage skin cells.
It can also be used in haircare, strengthening the hair, adding shine and brilliance, as well as calming frizzy hair and leaving it soft. It is greatly appreciated for its benefits and a valid cosmetic remedy for nourishing even sensitive skin, leaving it feeling pleasantly moisturised and supple.
Combating: helps to reduce common skin complaints, in particular blemishes
Anti-Oxidising: protects against harsh free radicals
Hydrating: restores softness and hydration to the skin
Softening: calms skin complaints.
HOW TO USE
Apply a small quantity daily to areas with hyperpigmentation and massage until completely absorbed.
It is recommended to mix Camellia oil with Andiroba oil to reduce the presence of persistent marks. The former helps reduce marks on the skin, while the latter exfoliates and smooths the area with hyperpigmentation, for a more decisive lightening action.
For moisturised skin
For a softer and more moisturised skin, distribute a small quantity of oil on the skin of the face and massage until completely absorbed.
Apply the oil to damp hair to untangle and soften frizzy hair. Distribute the product with a wide-toothed comb and massage to ensure it is thoroughly absorbed. To transform frizzy hair into a lustrous mane, apply a small amount of product to dry ends and at the roots.
The product has no fragrance, the smell is that characteristic of the raw material.
