CAMELLIA OIL - 100% Pure

Regular price $40.00

This 72ml bottle of 100% PURE CAMELLIA OIL is made in Japan by Kurobara, and is cold pressed by a raw squeezing method of the wild harvested seeds of the Camellia tree flower. Cold pressing is a labour-intensive mechanical process that ensures the maximum possible amount of the oil's character and nutritional content is preserved. 

100% Pure Camellia Oil has been used in Japan for hundreds of years to protect skin and hair... and tools. 

100% pure camellia oil is an Emollient (something that softens skin and hair) and approximately 82% of its fatty acids are composed of Oleic Acid (Omega 9). Omega 9 is a remarkable transdermal carrier and is very effective in enhancing the skin's moisture retention ability. It is quickly absorbed and permeates deep into the lower layers of the skin, promoting cell growth and giving the skin support and flexibility. The other key components of camellia oil include vitamin A, B, and E (tocotrienols), linoleic acid, palmitic acid, and lastly all three omega 3, 6 and 9 fatty acids.

Here are some reasons this 100% pure version of oil is so good...

Product Features:

Camellia oil is packed full of anti-oxidants and omega fatty acids to fight against the signs of aging. It is naturally rich in vitamin A, which helps to even out your skin tone. In Japan, many people also use camellia oil as a massage oil, which can be especially helpful for the prevention and treatment of sagging cheeks, wrinkles and maintaining elasticity and tone of the skin. The Japanese believe in prevention, not cure, so they use massage techniques regularly to maintain the health and vitality of their skin.

As camellia oil only has a comedogenic rating of 1, it’s unlikely to cause acne or make acne prone skin worse. Its anti-inflammatory properties may help soothe inflammation caused by acne, including red and sore skin. Many people with acne have less linoleic acid in their skin. As this is a component of camellia oil, applying it can top up the levels of linoleic acid. And by doing so, acne is less likely to appear.

Overall Body Oil
The antioxidant and fatty acid content of camellia oil makes it a nourishing overall body oil suitable to tend to our areas most vulnerable to become dry or flaky. This is one of the Japanese Camellia oil benefits: the power to boost the skins moisture levels of areas like the elbows, knees and heels. If you apply it as soon as stepping out of the shower when the body is still damp, water will get trapped between the oil and the skin for optimal hydration. Rub gently into the skin until it’s absorbed.

Nail and Hand Care
Camellia oil can be used on nails to strengthen and soften dry or brittle nails. Smooth, shiny and healthy looking nails can be achieved by rubbing a couple of drops into the nails either with a cotton pad or with your hands. This is recommended to do after washing hands with lukewarm water. The hands can also be moisturised by camellia oil. People also often forget about the hands when it comes to looking after the skin, so they’re often the first giveaway on someone’s age. By giving yourself a hand massage with camellia oil every day, as well as feeling relaxed, you will have perfectly soft, smooth, youthful hands you can elegantly show off to the world.

Beautiful Hair
Commonly used as a hair treatment or leave in conditioner, camellia oil is deeply moisturising and nourishing for healthy, luscious locks. There is a reason why Japanese women are renowned for their shiny, sleek hair, and it's probably because of camellia oil. After washing, camellia oil is carefully rubbed into the ends of hair to offer nourishment with its anti-oxidant power, promoting repair for soft, smooth hair.

Tool Care
100% pure camellia oil is a food safe product and therefore is especially suited for the preservation and protection of kitchen knives. Chefs all over the world will rub 100% pure camellia along their knife blades after use to give that extra bit of protection.

    Silky Saws NZ also import in a version of mixed Camellia and Mineral Oil which is suitable for the protection of your hand tools and blades.

    ​SILKY saws work on the pull stroke, minimising effort and providing a smooth clean cut, maximising tree health. They can rip-cut, cross-cut and slant-cut. The hard chrome plating produces an exceedingly hard, durable surface, the replaceable blades are resistant to rust and the effects of resin, and they are finely or mirror polished and wipe clean easily.

    ​The Icons below describe the various features that make SIlky Saws so unique and high performing. Please view individual saw descriptions to determine which features relates to that specific model.

    Mirai-Me Smooth Cutting
    The teeth of the future! Silky blades have precision ground razor sharp teeth, with 4 cutting angles along their length. They leave an especially smooth surface after cutting and are ideal for pruning, greatly reducing the risk of infection. They can rip-cut, cross-cut and slant-cut.
    Non-Set Teeth
    The blades are made from SK-4 high carbon steel and are taper ground (i.e. thicker at the tooth edge and thinner at the back of the blade). This taper reduces resistance giving smoother, easier, and faster cutting performance. 
    Impluse Hardening
    Using a special high frequency heating technique, teeth are heated instantly and hardened. Because only the teeth are heated, the blade retains its normal flexibility. Hardened teeth stay sharp about 3 times longer than non-hardened teeth.
    Four Rows of Teeth
    Silky Saw teeth are set in such a way that there appears to be 4 rows of them. These are rough cutting hand saws for heavier tasks. They can rip-cut, cross-cut and slant-cut.
    Hard Chrome Plating
    Hard Chrome Plating produces an exceedingly hard and durable surface. The blades are resistant to rust and the effects of resin, and they are finely or mirror polished and wipe clean easily.
    Because impulse-hardening is not applied, the blades marked with this symbol can be sharpened with a file.
    Hard Chrome Plating
    Hard Chrome Plating produces an exceedingly hard and durable surface. The blades are resistant to rust and the effects of resin, and they are finely or mirror polished and wipe clean easily.
    Rubber Handles
    Almost all Silky Saws have rubber compound elastomer handles, either inserted or vulcanised to ABS plastic or steel. Rubber handles are more comfortable to hold, reduce vibration, and offer superior grip in the cold and wet.



    The guide below refers to the numbers of teeth per 30mm on the blade. Each Silky blade is defined as having "Extra Large Teeth" to "Extra Fine Teeth" and the icons below are designed to help you identify the teeth configuration of every saw in the Silky range.

    Extra Large Teeth
    Typically, this saw will be for use in forestry or heavy-duty arborist work. The teeth configuration will range between 3 and 7 teeth per 30mm and will give a very aggressive cut. In general you will be surprised by the smoothness of the cut.
    Large Teeth
    A saw with large teeth will be ideal for use in heavy/medium pruning tasks, root cutting, and construction. The number of teeth will range between 7 and 8 teeth per 30mm. An aggressive and smooth cut will be achieved.
    Medium Teeth
    Ideal for pruning work or construction, a medium teeth configuration usually has 10 teeth per 30mm and will give a cleaner finish when compared to larger teeth saws.
    Fine Teeth
    These saws are likely to be used for gardening and woodworking, and a fine teeth configuration typically comprises of 13 to 20 teeth per 30mm and will achieve a clean finish.
