closeupThe base cloth of these double gauzes features a camellia flower that has been woven into the cloth.   What’s more the fabric has been treated with a proprietary “SmoothSkin” process, where camellia oil (also known as  camellia japonica oil or tsubaki) is adhered to the fabric, giving it a soft and luxurious feel.

Now we did some sleuthing around the internet, and apparently camellia oil has all sorts of skin-enhancing properties.  It’s loaded with anti-oxidants, absorbs into the skin quickly and is rich in nourishing vitamins and minerals.
