Key Ingredients

CAMELLIA OIL
Long used in Japan and China for cosmetic skin and hair treatment, Camellia oil, sometimes known as tea oil, has been extensively studied for its skin benefits. It contains high levels of saponins, which have shown skin protective properties, as well as vitamins A, B, C and E. Additionally, the oil contains high levels of polyphenols, a natural antioxidant.

JOJOBA OIL
Taken from the seeds of the desert Jojoba shrub, the liquid wax seed content is an ideal cosmetic ingredient due to its high oxidative stability and non-irritating, non-comodogenic moisturizing effects on skin. Dermatological research has found it to reduce cutaneous inflammation, through decreased leukocyte infiltration, as well as improve skin healing and the appearance of acne scars.

2 reviews for Face Cream No. 3 – Camellia & Jojoba

  1. Marla

    This is a terrific addition to my daily regimen. The cream is rich and luxurious without being heavy and fat! The scent is so minimal, it is almost undetectable. Love it!

  2. Aileen

    I have dry/sensitive skin, often needing to apply cream more than once to feel moisturized. With this cream, it absorbed really well and felt very emollient. In warmer season, one application is enough and now that it’s getting into winter, I’m starting to apply the night oil as a supplement- it’s a great pairing! I also like that it is a scent-free formula.
