100% Pure, Certified Organic Therapeutic Grade Camellia Oil
Silkia® camellia oil (also known as "camellia seed oil") is a carrier oil. It's derived from the seeds of camellias, a kind of evergreen shrub with shiny leaves and rose-like flowers. It is obtained by mechanical (cold) pressing of the camellia seeds, followed by advanced scientific refining processes including degreasing, deodorizing and filtering to produce a 100% organic, pure natural oil free from preservatives, odour and solvent residues. Anecdotal evidence suggests that camellia oil is a most effective multi-purpose moisturizer. Used by women in East Asia to nourish skin and hair for centuries, it is a tried and true, authentic anti-aging product with a proven history of efficacy. It has been acclaimed as a "Miracle Oil".

What it does

Silkia® camellia oil works wonders on your skin in the following ways:

  • Moisturize - it penetrates quickly and deeply, giving your skin optimum hydration without a greasy feel. Your skin will feel remarkably refreshed, smooth and firm.

  • Replenish - it increases skin resilience, giving your skin a supple and radiant glow you can see and feel. It endows your skin with a luminous silkiness that no other product can match today.

  • Restore - it eliminates or visibly diminishes fine lines and pitted acne scarring, and reduces the appearance of pores.

  • Protect - it contains Vitamins A, B, C, E and Polyphenol, natural antioxidants that safeguard your skin from the damaging effects of UV/environmental exposure and free radicals.

  • It offers similar benefits for hair. It adds shine, softness and smoothness to your hair.

  • It prevents stretch marks such as those acquired during pregnancy. It helps diminish or completely eliminate stretch marks.
Why it works

Silkia® camellia oil delivers dramatic results for the following reasons:

  • It is the most penetrative oil. It is very high in Oleic acid (almost 82% of its fatty acid compositions), a mono-unsaturated Oemga-3 fatty acid and other essential fatty acids such as Omega-6 Linoleic acid. Its Oleic acid composition is the highest among all natural oils. Studies of Oleic and other fatty acids have proven that they are an excellent emollient, and a remarkable natural agent for the retention and enhancement of skin moisture. A lack of lipid or fatty substances will impair the skin's ability to retain moisture. These substances in human skin decline as we age and this is a key factor in drier skin as we mature.

    Studies have demonstrated that Oleic acid has unparalleled penetration power, capable of permeating deeply into the lower layers of the stratum corneum to greatly enhance the beneficial effects of collagen and elastin, i.e. rejuvenating cell growth to give skin support and flexibility. Oleic acid is known as an excellent transdermal carrier of cell rebuilding nutrients and bioactive compounds (collagen and elastin) into the skin to repair the damage caused by dryness, sun exposure and other factors. The result is restoration of the skin's elasticity, significant improvement in skin texture as well as elimination or remarkable reduction of fine lines and small wrinkles.

  • It is compatible with your skin. The human skin is a natural filtering system that best accepts skincare products with natural ingredients - ingredients similar to those formed by the body itself. Your skin will not reject these substances, therefore boosting its ability to utilize them and hence replenish itself. Oleic acid is the main fatty acid in human skin lipids (ingredients found in skin including fatty acids and fats). It is the main fatty acid produced by the human sebaceous or oil glands. This means that the composition of camellia oil is very similar to that of the fatty acids of human skin. As a result, camellia oil can be easily and effectively absorbed into the skin to work in synergy with the skin's own natural system to nourish cell membranes, replenish skin lipids and accelerate skin rejuvenation. Camellia oil's natural ingredients are able to restore and revitalize skin and hair from the inside out.
Why it's better

Silkia® camellia oil is more effective than other natural oils and skincare products on the market today because:

  • It is more penetrating and hydrating without greasy residues. Studies have proven that no skincare products can work unless they penetrate multiple layers of the skin barrier. Camellia oil is able to penetrate deep down the skin's lower layers to restore moisture and elasticity as well as replenish skin lipids which are essential to prevent skin water loss. On the other hand, many water- and chemical-based creams sold on the market today cannot penetrate beyond the outermost layers of the skin and therefore have only transitory surface effects.

  • It is more cost effective. It delivers dramatic results at less than half the cost, or even a fraction of the cost of brand name anti-aging creams at department stores.

  • It won't clog pores or cause acne because skin tissue responds better to the molecular structure of fatty acids found in camellia oil.

  • It does not cause any irritation or allergic reactions such as stinging, peeling, flaking and rash, unlike most Retinol, AHA and chemical acid based anti-aging creams. Completely safe and gentle, it can be used for all skin types. You can use it every day and night, even around the eyes.

  • It does not contain any artificial fragrances, colorings, solvent residues, detergents and detergent-like chemicals which may degrade the skin's natural protective function in the long run. It is not tested on animals.
What are its ingredients

100% pure, certified organic camellia seed oil. The active ingredient is Oleic acid. 90% of the oil is composed of the Triglyceride of Oleic and Linoleic acid, of which Oleic acid accounts for over 82%. These acids are difficult to oxidize. The other ingredients include Polyphenol (potent anti-oxidant), vitamins A, B, C & E, and minerals.
How it differs from other camellia oils

image of camellia treeJust as not all that glitters is gold, not all camellia oils are the same. Camellia oil is classified into different grades based on its quality and intended use. Silkia® camellia oil is uniquely optimized for cosmetic use for your face and around your eyes. It's neither too greasy, as in crude/unfiltered camellia oil nor too light, as in some ultra refined camellia oil. Whereas ultra refined camellia oil is deficient in moisturizing and revitalizing power, the unpleasant residues and greasiness of crude/unfiltered camellia oil not only make it unappealling to apply it on your face, they also hinder the permeation of camellia oil's rejuvenating nutrients into the fine pores of your facial skin. Silkia® camellia oil strikes a perfect balance between the two and is therefore the best to rejuvenate your delicate facial skin and eyes. It gives you the optimum benefits of 100% pure organic camellia oil without the greasy feels.

How to use it

For face:
After cleansing, apply 3-4 drops of Silkia® camellia oil to face and throat every morning and night. Can be used around the eyes to diminish puffiness, dark circles and fine lines. Massage gently and thoroughly until completely absorbed. Use alone or follow with a sunscreen as desired.

For hair:
After shampooing (when the hair is still wet), apply 3-4 drops to hair and scalp. Then wrap your hair in a hot towel for 20 minutes or 30 minutes for long hair. No need to rinse it off.
