Virgin Macadamia Nut Oil

Macadamia trees are a beautiful evergreen species prized for the flavorful and highly nutritious nuts that they produce. Originating in Australia, they are also known as Queensland Nuts. The nuts are a rich source of healthy lipids, vitamins, minerals and protein.


Uses:

Macadamia Nut Oil is a highly emollient oil that is primarily comprised of monounsaturated fatty acids including 14-25% Palmitoleic Acid. Uncommon within most vegetable oils, Palmitoleic Acid is an Omega-7 fatty acid that is a natural component of skin sebum and is highly beneficial in moisturizing and supporting healthy skin. Macadamia Nut Oil protects the skin, lips and hair from moisture loss when used in cosmetics and personal care product formulation. Within hair care applications, it helps moisturize and soothe the hair and scalp. It also helps to restore dull and damaged hair and provides natural shine. Due to its composition, viscosity and smooth glide when applied to the skin, Macadamia Nut Oil is also an exceptional lipid for use within massage applications.
