Macadamia has one of the highest sources of the essential fatty acids, palmitoleic acid. Palmitoleic Acid is very close to human sebum, in chemical profile. As mature skin is lacking in this essential fatty acid, Macadamia nut oil is an excellent carrier for all anti-aging and mature, especially menopausal - treatment products, where it offers restructuring and moisturizing. This oil is highly emollient and deeply moisturising, a great choice for protecting skin during dry winter months or anytime skin is exposed to the weathering effects of outdoor activities. Due to its anti-inflammatory nature this oil is an excellent all natural aftershave oil, leaving smooth and healthier skin behind.
Macadamia nut oil is excellent in hair care. It has the ability to reduce hair loss, softens hair and improves hair manageability. The oil can also heal chapped lips very quickly.
