Camellia Kissi oil is a clear, viscose, light, non greasy anti-oxidant used for centuries by the Japanese to improve the overall texture of nails, scalp and combination skin. Camellia Kissi oil is cold pressed from the seeds of the Camellia Kissi plant, using traditional Japanese methods of extraction. It's easily absorbed, has no detectable odour on the skin and gently protects naturally curly hair without causing scalp build up.
It is also a rich source of plant collagen that helps to prevent keloids and/or unsightly scar tissue - great for stretch marks. Camellia Kissi has traditionally been used in Japan for everything from sculpting the thick, natural hair of the Geisha to cooking tempura. The Japanese massage Camellia Kissi oil into the scalp and distribute it throughout the hair from root to tip; to lock in moisture and prevent scalp dryness. Camellia Kissi contains vitamins A, B, C, E and Polyphenol, natural antioxidants that safeguards your skin from the damaging effects of UV/environmental exposure and free radicals.
Camellia Kissi versus other natural oils:
Camellia Kissi oil has the highest concentration of Oleic acid (Omega 9), approx. 80 to 85%, whereas Extra Virgin Olive oil has approx. 77% and Emu oil approx. 40%.
Due to Camellia Kissi's high Oleic Acid content it is purported to be the most penetrative of ALL natural oils.
This makes a fantastic addition to any hair care regime, perfect for stretch marks, scars and healing inflamed skin tissues. Oleic acid regenerates and preserves skin cells, and is purported to be able to transport natural bioactive compounds directly through to the outermost layer of the skin - the epidermis.
An all natural emolient for your face and body:
• Camellia Kissi provides optimum hydration to your skin without leaving a greasy feel.
• Camellia Kissi visibly diminishes fine lines, acne scarring and reduces the appearance of pores, evens out skin tone and texture.
• Even broken capillaries and blotchy skin tone are noticeably improved.
A nutrient rich natural hair oil:
Camellia Kissi adds shine, softness and smoothes thick naturally curly and Afro hair.
When your hair is slightly damp, simply apply a small amount of Camellia Kissi to your ends and rake through with your fingers to seal in moisture.
Suitable for all skin types:
• For your face - After cleansing, apply a few drops of Camellia Kissi oil to face and neck area every morning and just before bed.
• Around the eyes - Camellia can be used around the eye area to diminish puffiness, fine lines and dark circles.
• For your body - After a shower or bath add no more than 2 squirts of Camellia Kissi oil to the palm of your hand. Rub your palms together and distribute evenly all over your body to lock in moisture.
• Due to it's high omega 9 content, Camellia Kissi is also purported to be effective in treating irritating skin conditions such as dermatitis, rosacea, acne, eczema and psoriasis.
• For stretch marks and scars - Apply a couple of drops to the affected area twice a day. Massage in circular motion until completely absorbed.
• Great for Mother's to be - keeps skin supple all throughout your pregnancy.
Suitable for all naturally curly hair types
Super sealant for dry natural hair - tip:
After shampooing (when your hair is still wet), apply a couple of drops to your hair and scalp.
Work from root to tip, wrap your hair in a hot towel for 20 minutes or 30 minutes for long tresses.
No need to rinse it out.

Placed my first Anita Grant order on Black Friday 2012. Order arrived rather quickly considering it hade to make its way across the pond to the U.S. For me it does not have much of a scent. Numerous head to toe uses: I have used it following the traditional oil cleansing method and what I call my quickie cleansing method - A damp reusable cotton pad with two squirts of oil. I use one side to remove dirt / makeup and the other side to make sure nothing is left... All over body moisturizer / sealer on damp skin... As a base for salt / sugar scrub for my entire body... To seal my hair... The uses are ENDLESS! While I know AG goodies are a bit pricey (as compared to the traditional 2oz try me sizes and standard 4, 6 & 8oz sizes we see in the U.S. for less), these are quality ingredients packaged in glass bottles WITH LOCKING PUMPS. No more spilling or drip mistakes during travel. I have not emptied any of my goodies that are packaged in pump bottles - but I am hoping that it can be upcycled. If you have other naturalista sisters in your circle, come together and place a larger order that will qualify for free shipping with order tracking. You won't be disappointed. My naturalista circle is gearing up for our 2013 Black Friday order. MIneral makeup and eyeshadow is on everyone's list! (Posted on 03/11/2013)
Head to Toe Moisturizing Review by Olena
Quality Price Value
Your Japanese Kissi Oil is simply amazing! It has rejuvenated my skin in ways I did not know possible. I love how affordable it is, plus it's all natural so I don't have to worry about any damage to my skin or side effects down the line. A quick dab spread on my face, hands, or feet in the morning keeps me going all day! The only thing better is combining it with your organic fijian coconut oil!

I have been using this consistently for 3 weeks in the morning and the evenings on my face and neck. I AM impressed!!
I had been using Clinique 3-step system for over 20 years but I have to say, that Japanese Camellia Kissi Oil has done the trick.
I use this in place of my moisturiser and my face and neck are supple and soft and my pores have become almost invisible.
No more tight skin.
No more greasy skin.
My face looks brighter and clearer.
I also ordered a few more of these sample sizes to throw in my luggage when I travel.
GREAT PRODUCT!!! (Posted on 20/07/2013)
Fabulous oil! Review by Andy Williams
Price Value Quality
I have keloids and the scars are very noticeable.
The only thing that sort of worked was Japanese Camellia from Elemis but that stuff isn't even 100% Camellia and it's very very expensive at $40 bucks a bottle.
I was doing some research on the different types of Camellia oil and came across your site. I purchased one bottle and within 2 weeks of using your Camellia Kissi the scars have faded substantially.
Thank you Ms Grant for selling this oil in it's pure form and for a reasonable price - even for us folks in the US of A.

Brilliant top to toe oil.
I use it on my hair as a pre-shampoo, on my face, as an after shower oil to lock in moisture. On the ends of my hair to stop the frizz and prevent split ends. Please don't stop selling this oil!
