for a tablespoon of oil... About the precious,
high-quality raw material
OSHIMA TSUBAKI is a 100% natural plant oil that extracts the essence of camellias growing freely in natural surroundings. The quality of the raw material reflects directly on the quality of the oil. That's why only the best raw materials that have met OSHIMA TSUBAKI's high standards are used. It takes between 20 and 30 years before camellia plants start producing seeds that can be harvested for oil. The harvested seeds are finely crushed, and crude camellia oil is extracted through time-honored pressed expression.

Izu Oshima is an island that is blessed with a warm climate. It was company-founder, Shunichi Okada, who introduced the golden oil extracted from the wild camellias that thrive on the island to the world. He visited Izu Oshima while preparing to write his university graduation thesis. Moved by the beautiful, magnificent natural surroundings, he made a decision to devote his life to the growth and development of the island.
Okada founded the company in 1927 and took unique, bold steps to inform people of the high-quality camellia oil. They consisted of selling small amounts by measure and pitching the product to department stores, which had overwhelming brand strength at the time. Even after sales at retail stores began, he continued developing many different sales channels. It included selling the oil at shops located within magazine publishers and girls' schools, and carrying out mail order sales to rural areas.
After World War II, when low-quality knock-off products made their way to the market, he carried out sales promotion that was dramatic at the time. A campaign bus carrying women dressed in traditional Oshima-style attire drove around the nation advertising OSHIMA TSUBAKI. He succeeded in regaining the image of OSHIMA TSUBAKI camellia oil as the best and authentic product.
From the women who started using the product at that time to their daughters, and from those daughters to the grandchildren... The appeal of OSHIMA TSUBAKI camellia oil has been passed down through the generations to the users of today.
