The source of Camellia oil is always changing, depending on who our distributor has bought their latest batch from, however the consistency should always be similar, and from what we understand from our suppliers, so are the properties.  Currently we have the sasanqua in stock, however we have been notified that the next batch is more likely to be oleifera.  The label on your bottle will confirm which variety it is.
