Oils 101-Camellia Oil For Hair Growth/Skin Care

This oil doesn't seem to be well-known in the United States. However, Camellia Oil is apparently  the beauty secret of the Japanese. It’s derived from the seeds of the Camellia Oleifera which mainly grow in Japan from Islands of Nagasaki Prefecture and Islands of Tokyo Prefecture.  It’s also known as tinseed oil. Camellia’s oleic acid concentration (oleic acid is amazing for the hair and skin) is 85%. That is very impressive, and is the highest concentration of any vegetable. oil. It’s also loaded with Vitamins A, B, C, E and Protein which are great vitamins for your hair and skin. According to this article written by Chyrene Pendleton ,Dr. Liau a professor Of Pathology at Columbia University says that “Camellia oil can increase hair growth making it fuller and healthier in just a few weeks even restoring color to white hair." According to the article Dr. Liau said that "Oleic acid cleans the scalp and hair follicles and allows oxygen and nutrients to penetrate freely and deeply. First as newly dividing cells at the base of the hair multiply, they force the cells above them upward helping them to promote the growth of hair.”
Many pregnant women I know swear by Camellia oil for prevention of stretch marks, and it’s moisturizing abilities.
Have you tried it?
I’m just getting started with this one.
