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

Oil its fantastic regeneration and moisturizing properties.

from the skins delicate tissues.

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.

Properties of Macadamia Nut Oil

The Linoleic Fatty Acid
content, makes it great for a parched, dehydrated skin, that has
difficulty retaining moisture
Macadamia nut oil helps to prevent against
hair breakage by penetrating the scalp and hair follicles to improve hair
strength and elasticity.
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.
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.
