    Background on Macadamia Oil

    Much as its name implies, macadamia oil comes from the macadamia nut, which is native to Australia and frequently grown in the temperate climates of Hawaii and California. The nuts have long been part the diet of the Aborigines of Australia. Macadamia nuts are nutrient-rich with high levels of selenium, zinc and heart-healthy fatty acids that trigger your body to burn fat more efficiently. Aboriginal tribes used the oil for cosmetics and body decorations.

    Beautifying Skin from the Inside

    Anytime you consume macadamia nut oil with its rich in essential fatty acids, you benefit your entire body, including your skin. Macadamia nuts contain approximately 80 percent monounsaturated fats, including oleic acid, which protects your heart from disease and reduces cholesterol levels. The oil is also a rich source of palmitoleic acid, which is a powerful antioxidant that supports healthy cell membranes, hydrates the skin and supports skin healing. By consuming essential fatty acids, you can minimize skin conditions such as dandruff, dry skin, dry hair and brittle nails.

    This oil is fabulous for a dry, mature skin, which is due to its interesting Fatty Acid profile.

    Palmitoleic acid: Macadamia Nut Oil contains one of the highest sources of Palmitoleic Fatty Acids, between 16 to 23%. Palmitoleic is vital for delaying skin and cell aging, as our skin ages it rapidly becomes depleted in Palmitoleic Acid,

    Oleic acid: This Fatty Acid gives Macadamia Nut Oil its fantastic regeneration and moisturizing properties.

    Linoleic acid: This is a wonderful fatty acid that helps to prevent trans epidermal water loss (TEWL), from the skins delicate tissues.

    High in phytosterols: These have a real affinity with the skin.

    Plant phytosterols are the building blocks of our cell membrane.

    These sterols work the same way that cholesterol does in our skin, which is one of the reasons why Macadamia nut oil has great skin penetration abilities.

    Phytosterols are also calming and healing, which is why the oil is perfect for repairing the skin’s barrier function.

    FOR THE HAIR

    Macadamia nut oil helps to prevent against hair breakage by penetrating the scalp and hair follicles to improve hair strength and elasticity.


    Frizz Control

    Women with curly hair may be especially prone to frizz, which is a haphazard mass of frazzled tufts. The appearance of frizz may increase in humid weather or through incorrect application of beauty products. The essential fatty acids and vitamin compounds found in macadamia nut oil help control the frizz.

    Hydration

    The body naturally produces a compound known as palmitoleic acid, which has anti-aging properties, to offset those factors by replenishing lost moisture in the skin and hair. With age, however, the amount of palmitoleic acid produced decreases. Consumption of omega-7, an essential fatty acid that is found in macadamia nut oil, helps to restore palmitoleic acid in the body for skin and hair hydration.


    Absorption of Free Radicals

    A study published in the January 2010 edition of "Food Chemistry" notes that macadamia nut oil contains antioxidants, such as vitamin E and squalene, which protect the skin, hair and cellular structures from the damage caused by free radicals. Free radicals not only damage the body on a cellular level, but they may also alter DNA. Antioxidants serve to neutralize the free radicals to prevent certain types of cancers, such as prostate, cervical, lung or breast cancer, slow signs of aging and promote overall health.
