Before chemical sunscreen came , Japanese relied on 100% Camellia oil for sun protection. Camellia oil has been used as natural sunscreen here in Japan. Camellia oil has a natural SPF of 4-5, and protect the skin from harmful UV. However, As time has passed, it has been replaced with harmful chemicals ones.
I use Camellia oil as alternative to sunscreen for daily life now .I place a few drops in palm and apply to my face. It’s All you need is a bit because it spreads well.It can be used on the face, body and hair. This 100% natural sunscreen is safe for all skin types including babies!
However,low SPF isn’t sufficient for a long day in the sun. For a long day in the sun, in addition to camellia oil, there are other good ways to protect your skin from the sun. I recommend swim shirts, hats, sunglasses, shirts with long sleeves.
I use this on my hair after a shower,too. When it dries, it leaves my hair soft.
Please test out it and change it up to suit the needs of your skin.
