Macadamia Oil

Macadamia tree and fruits
Active Ingredients:
Palmitoleic acid

Macadamia oil is extracted (cold-pressed) from the chestnut-like stone fruits (nuts called Macadamia integrifolia with the highest concentration of palmitoleic acid) of the macadamia tree. Palmitoleic acid is a mono-saturated fatty acid found in the skin sebum, and therefore macadamia nut oil is beneficial where sebum production is diminished. Smoothes skin, slightly lifting, softening, and regenerating. Ideally suited for dry, rough, and sensitive skin as it is very similar to human sebum.

It is highly emollient to promote excellent skin conditioning and skin suppleness. Protective with a high absorption rate, it is used for healing scars, sunburn, minor wounds, and other irritations.
