  • Description

    Light, scent-free, clear-coloured, camellia seed oil is among the most efficient traditional hair and beard care oils. Favoured by sumo wrestlers to anoint and protect their mane, it is valued for its sheathing properties on strands and ends. Generous, with a high concentration in oleic acid, camellia oil nourishes, soothes and protects the skin from external aggressors.

    This oil is used to coat Minebari wood combs, these truly timeless beauty accessories, after they have been sculpted, both to give the wood a beautiful finish and to lustre the hair with each stroke. Apply camellia oil regularly throughout their long life to maintain and protect these exceptional combs properly.

    Our ‘Tsubaki’, a precious oil very popular in Japan, is extracted from the seeds of camellia, from the family Theaceae, on the Goto Islands. On these islands on the Southern end of Japan, camellias prosper and cover the hills with their glossy leaves. The seeds are harvested by local people before being brought to the traditional oil mill. Before being pressed, they go through a gentle steam bath, following the tamejime method.

  • How to use

    The Officine recommends

    Camellia Oil suits all skin types.

    As part of a daily routine, warm up a few drops between your palms and apply them on detangled hair. One or two drops should be enough to moisturise and soften beards and moustaches.

    It can be massaged around the nails to soften cuticles and prevent them from hardening.


    As part of a weekly routine

    Massage the required amount into hair lengths (the hair should be slightly impregnated but not oily), leave on as a masque for 20 minutes before washing your hair. Apply the shampoo directly on your hair, without water at first, then wash your hair, adding warm water little by little.

    Nourishing and straightening hair rinse : 

    Rinsing is an important and often overlooked step in the process of washing your hair. Patient rinsing with fresh water can be improved by using this lustre-boosting elixir weekly.
    Add two or three drops of camellia oil to a bowl of warm spring water, along with a dash of cider vinegar.
    Whisk the mixture into an emulsion and rinse your previously-washed hair with this solution.
    Pat your hair dry with a clean, dry cloth, without rubbing it.

    C'est dingue que cette huile ne soit pas si connue. Elle laisse les cheveux d'une douceur incomparable, je m'en sers le matin pour me coiffer ... Depuis 17 ans.
