How is CAMELLIA oil extracted
Once picked, the fruits are dried under the sun to first allow them to naturally split open, which contributes to the easy isolation of the seeds. They are then dried further for several days to minimize their humidity content. The hull, or the outer shell of the seed, is removed in a process known as 'dehulling'. The cracking or pulverization of the seeds helps increase the surface area of contact for pressing. Finally, the extraction of the oil is done via cold-pressing, which preserves the oil's purity, quality, and nutrient profile.
