What is it: This lightweight, dry face oil is destined to become your do-it-all natural moisturizer. A celebrity favorite, it’s made with 73% naturally unrefined, extra virgin Camellia japonica seed oil that is harvested and cold-pressed from the hardy camellia flower flourishing in the mineral-rich volcanic soil of South Korea’s famed Jeju Island. Camellia seed oil has more antioxidant power than even olive or grape seed oil; nourishes skin with vitamins A, B, and E; and is rich in omega-3, -6, and -9 fatty acids. Because of its low molecular weight, similar to that of skin, camellia seed oil absorbs easily and quickly without stickiness or an overly slick feel.
Use morning and night after your serum and before your moisturizer. Apply 2-3 drops on your entire face, gently massaging or pressing in, concentrating on areas with fine lines or wrinkles. Alternatively, mix with your favorite serum or moisturizer for an antioxidant boost.
In its nature-based skincare line, SanDaWha harnesses the purity and power of the camellia flower that thrives in the unique ecosystem of Jeju Island, considered Korea’s Hawaii for its tropical climate and lush greenery. Camellia seed oil is rich in vitamins, omega-3, -6, and -9, and oleic acid; absorbs well without stickiness; and helps to deeply hydrate skin. Using a cold-pressing process to naturally extract unrefined camellia oil, thereby preserving its skin-nourishing properties, SanDaWha emphasizes high quality ingredients over fancy packaging. SanDaWha believes in skincare that is kind to your skin, your health, and the environment, and never uses harmful ingredients.
