Benefits of Camellia oil
Benefits in beauty and body care.
Camellia oil contains fatty acids that helps to restore the elasticity, balance and smoothness of the skin. Therefore, this is an oil that has been traditionally used to care the hair and the skin, softens and soothes sensitive and irritated skin. It is an ideal oil for oily, acne and psoriasis skins because it regulates the sebaceous secretion, by releasing pore and moisturizing the skin and preventing the formation of grains.
Camellia oil is more effective than other natural oils and skin care products because its composition makes it a powerful penetrating oil which, joined its similarity with the sebum from the skin, moisturizes it and leaves no greasy residue. Other benefits of Camellia oil is that it is capable of penetrating into the lower layers of the skin to restore moisture and elasticity, as well as replenish skin lipids which are essential to prevent the loss of water from the skin and therefore the aging. This is one of the most important benefits of Camellia oil.
Do not cover the pores or produces acne, since the skin tissue responds perfectly to the molecular structure of fatty acids found in camellia oil.
Does not cause irritation or allergic reactions such as itching, formation of flakes and skin rashes, unlike the majority of retinol, AHA and chemical acid used in some anti-aging creams. Completely safe and gentle, that can be used for all skin types. It can be used every day and night, even around the eyes.
Oil rich in vitamins (aid for the formation and maintenance of bone and soft tissue, healthy teeth, mucous membranes and skin), B (very different functions for the proper functioning of the cells), D (responsible for regulating the passage of calcium to the bones) and E (anti-oxidant level the synthesis of heme, which is an essential part of hemoglobin in red blood cells) and minerals such as phosphorus (P) zinc (Zn), calcium (Ca), manganese (Mn) and magnesium (Mg).

Benefits in feeding
Camellia oil is beneficial for human beings, especially for heart and blood diseases and also acts as a powerful antioxidant.
There is no trans fat because it is a natural product, which is good because it is a type of fat that causes heart diseases, cancer, diabetes, obesity and liver failure.
It contains arachidonic acid which is a polyunsaturated essential fatty acid of the omega-6 series present in the Camellia oil. This omega-6 acid is in the membranes of cells which aid in communication between cells and is very abundant in the brain, which makes it one of the essential fatty acids required by most mammals.
It contains myristic acid, fatty acid that forms part of the phospholipids and glycolipids, molecules that make up the lipid bilayer of cell membranes.
The concentration of saturated fat is one of the lowest within the edible oils. These fats are closely related with the increase of cholesterol and heart diseases.
The concentration of monounsaturated fats is very high. This kind of fat are good for health and lowers levels of bad cholesterol so it is an important benefit for this oil with respect to the already marketed.
High smoke point, specifically it is the highest within the edible ones. This benefit refers to the temperature at which the oil begins to emit smoke and from which loses its properties (degraded fatty acids). Oils with a high smoke point are healthier cooking and have a longer life because they allow to reuse them a greater number of times. Oils, when they exceed its smoke point, free free radicals which are very close to a large number of cancers.
