Observations and Anecdotal Information
Macadamia nut oil is a lightweight oil, that is well absorbed without leaving a greasy feeling.
It is high in monounsaturated fatty acids, including Oleic Acid (Omega 9), Linoleic Acid (Omega 6), and Palmitoleic Acid (Omega 7). These fatty acids are very moisturizing, regenerating and softening on the skin.
Macadamia nut botanical oil helps to restore the skin’s barrier function and reduce water loss. It also contains an active anti-microbial that is found naturally in youthful skin.
Palmitoleic Acid (Omega 7) levels in our skin reduce with age, contributing to the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles and weathered skin. Macadamia nut oil has been shown to slow the signs of aging and has also been used to improve the appearance of scars, sunburn, and other minor skin irritations.
It makes a marvelous base for healing cremes and salves. It is effective for all kind of skin irritations and allergic reactions. It can be used to make cremes and beeswax salves.
