Native Australian Macadamia Oil is a lightweight nut oil that rapidly absorbs into your skin without feeling greasy. Macadamia oil is high in Omega 9 (moisturizing, regenerating and softening) on the skin. Contains Omega 6, which assists in restoring the skin’s barrier and helping reduce water loss, and Omega 7 which contributes to appearance of fine line, wrinkle and weathered skin. Macadamia nut oil has been shown to slow the signs of ageing and has also been used to improve the appearance of scars, sunburn and other minor skin irritations. Modern research studies verify Macadamia Oil is: particularly good for mature and dry skins; has a high palmitoleic oil content, which decreases in skin with ageing; and has a fatty acid composition similar to that of sebum in skin, which is crucial to maintenance of skin’s water barrier functions.
Indigenous to Australia, aborigines have used macadamia nut oil as a skin treatment for millennia.
