HONTOH TSUBAKI - FAQ
The 100-year-old Beauty Secret of Geisha
What is Tsubaki oil?
Tsubaki oil is cold-pressed from the seeds of camellia japonica and it does not oxidize easily. It is the only plant oil in the world that does not have any colour and the smell is almost non-existence.
Hontoh Tsubaki is a company founded in 1910 with more than 100 years of history. It specializes in producing pure tsubaki oil and it only uses the camellia found in Toshima, an island where 80% of land is covered in camellia forest.
What are the ingredients of Hontoh Tsubaki Skin and Hair Essence?
Both products contain 100% Tsubaki oil.
What is the difference between skincare and haircare essence?
Skincare essence contains more Vitamin E to protect your skin from harmful UV rays while haircare essence has moderate levels of Tocopherol variety vitamin E which is about 60 mg/1000 g.
How does Tsubaki oil protect our skin and hair?
There is a layer of sebum in stratum corneum, the outmost layer of epidermis. Camellia oil will harmonize with this layer of sebum, regulating and balancing its secretion, acting just like sebaceous glands. In other words, camellia oil could prevent the feeling of dry, chapped skin by ensuring there is enough sebum on our skin, especially after face-wash,
Natural sebum consists of approximately 60% "triglyceride" and in camellia oil, there is more than 85% of "oleic acid triglyceride". These two ingredients very much resemble each other and this is the reason why camellia oil could be a good substitute for sebum secreted by human body naturally.
