Macadamia ternifolia seed oil and Hydrogenated vegetable oil
How is it made?
Macadamia Nut Butter is made by blending cold pressed Macadamia Nut Oil with cosmetic grade Hydrogenated Vegetable Oil. Macadamia Nut Butter provides excellent emolliency and helps to restore dry, damaged, and sensitive skin.
The use of Macadamia Nuts has been long treasured by islanders, not only for its impressive health benefits but also for its ability to protect, soothe, and condition your skin.
Properties and Benefits
Production of palmitoleic acid, an Omega-7 fatty acid, declines in the skin as you age. Luckily, Macadamia Nut Oil provides abundance of palmitoleic acid as well as other oleic and omega-9 fatty acids. This creates an effective antioxidant, protecting the skin’s cell membranes from free radical damage. In addition, recent research substantiates that palmitoleic acid can be an effective antimicrobial on the skin's surface.
Macadamia Nuts also contain Omega-3 and Omega-6 fatty acids that are known to effectively provide extra nourishment and moisture for dry or mature skin.
Like Olive oil, Macadamia Nut oil is rich in antioxidants and is especially high in vitamin E. Vitamin E improves the appearance of scars, tones the skin, and prevents stretch marks. Vitamin E is a powerful antioxidant that protects your cells from the damaging effects of free radicals.
Skin & Lip Care
Macadamia Nut oil can be used as an excellent lip soother. Because it is so similar to the oil produced by the skin's sebaceous glands, Macadamia Nut oil both soothes and protects the skin.
The butter is a light non-greasy butter that absorbs quickly and easily into the skin. Use Macadamia Nut Butter in creams, lotions, deep conditioners, lip and body balms, and soaps at 2-5%. It may also be used to add "Island flair” to any product, especially tanning products.
