The glowing skin and flowing hair unique to Anko, the camellia harvesting women of Oshima Island, were a mystery to most outsiders. But not to the geisha, who have used this oil for centuries to remove perform­ance makeup without stripping skin. It is one of their greatest secrets - used for centuries to ensure optimal health of hair, nails and skin, camellia oil is rich in antioxidants and fatty acids, and very mild on the skin. Centuries of experience have created the perfect cleanser for your everyday beauty routine.

    Disintegrates all my makeup--from my waterproof mascara to the heavy duty black eyeliner. Amazingly gentle on my skin, the oil surprisingly does not give me breakouts--as someone who has very sensitive skin and is prone to be an oily mess. LOVE LOVE LOVE!!
