- Softening hand creams
- Nail strengtheners

It is very good to use for replenishing the skin as it increases the resilience of the skin and gives your skin a supple and radiant glow that you can see and feel.
Camellia oil gives a lovely shine and gloss to dull and lifeless skin as it enhances the radiance of the skin.
