(Refined oils are more suitable for those who want a lighter oil, with less smell and color. Commonly used in massage and cosmetic applications. Our Virgin Macadamia has a stong nutty smell and rich darker color. We wanted to offer this Refined alernative for thoe who love Macadamia Oil, but who want a more subtle, less odorous option. Also refined oils becuase they have less smell are prefereable to some for mixing in essential oils.)
Macadamia nut oil is the richest botanical source of Palmitoleic acid. Palmitoleic acid is primarily a healing agent, a mono unsaturated fatty acid that is a highly effective anti oxidant. This fatty acid is believed to support cell regeneration in the skin. This same fatty acid is also found in the sebum of the skin, particularly in youth, but diminishes with the aging process. This gives Macadamia oil a natural affiliation with the skin. There is evidence that the skin looses Palmitoleic acid content and slows production as we age.
Macadamia oil is particularly effective in replenishing and rejuvenating damaged, sensitive, dry and/ or mature skin with the palmitoleic acid (over 18%). It is because of these qualities that the oil is used in many anti-aging cosmetic formulations and applications.
Suggested Uses: Macadamia oil reinforces the lipidic cutaneous barrier of the skin. It also appears to have a slight sunscreen effect as well. Perfect as a carrier oil, it helps the essential oils penetrate the skin, particularly in massage. It is readily absorbed, leaving it soft and supple. Because of its high monounsaturation and natural antioxidants, it is self stabilizing. This means it has a long shelf life when stored in a cool dark place.
