Japanese Women's Carefully Guarded Beauty Secret
June 19, 2014
In Pure & Precious Oil organic blends we have a little known nutritious oil that has been used for hundreds of years by Japanese women;
Japanese Green Tea Extract, also known as Camellia oil.
Now don't get confused here. Japanese green tea (Camellia oleifera) is not the same plant as the one that gives you green and white tea (Camellia sinesis). Same family, but different species.
Traditionally, Japanese green tea seeds are pressed to produce a sweet, fragrant oil used in cooking and for health. This special oil, known as tsubaki oil in Japan as well as Japanese Camellia oil, contains a high amount of the powerful antioxidant ECGC along with other skin-loving nutrients like vitamin C and E and carotenoids which your body turns into vitamin A.
But there's something even more special about this oil Japanese women have used for centuries to enhance their beauty.
It contains one of the highest concentration of omega-9 fatty acid of any plant, 86.3%. Also known as oleic acid, this special oil is a great ally in the war against wrinkles. It keeps moisture in the skin, far much longer than any cream and yet has the ability to absorbs quicker into the skin than any cream. This makes it easier for skin-supporting nutrients (like collagen and elastin) to move around in the lower layers of your skin.
Japanese green tea oil increases your skin's permeability. Like liposomes, it helps your skin take in nutrients that would otherwise languish on the surface. In one study published in the Journal of Controlled Release, scientists demonstrated oleic acid increased the number of pores on your skin's surface, making it easier to bring in special nutrients like vitamin A.
Camellia oil - the Fed Ex of skin nutrition transport - with this skin nourishing oil in Pure & Precious Dry/Dehydrated Skin blend, you get a powerful boost for making sure your skin can absorb all other nutrients in the blend.
When you feed your skin with these critical skin nutrients found in Pure & Precious Oils like - Rosehip oil, Chia seed oil, Argan oil, Jojoba oil, Neroli oil, Sea Buckthorn oil (and many more in the blend) you will get the most beautiful skin EVER.
