What is Tea Seed Oil?
Tea seed oil (also known as tea oil, camellia oil, or Tsubaki oil) is a kind of edible oil. It is cold-pressed mainly from the seed of camellia oleifera but also from camellia sinensis, camellia japonica, and camellia sasanqua.
Tea seed oil should not be confused with tea tree oil (melaleuca oil), an inedible essential oil extracted from the leaves of the paperbark, melaleuca altermifolia, and used for medicinal purposes.
Tea seed oil is the main cooking oil in some of the southern provinces of China, such as Hunan—roughly one-seventh of the country’s population. Tea seed oil is used to manufacture soap, hair oil, lubricants, paint and a kind of rustproofing oil as well as in the synthesis of other high molecular weight compounds.
