So Macadamia Nut Oil… it can be a bit of weird concept to think about putting nut oils on our skin and hair but they have huge benefits! The right kind of skincare oils work better than oil free products to normalise oil production, reduce the signs of ageing and refine the skin’s texture.
If you have naturally oily or congested skin don’t be put off by the thought of using products with natural oils as the main ingredient! These natural oils do not cause oily skin or clog the pores. While all skin types may react differently to skincare oils, macadamia nut oil tends to be highly tolerated by the vast majority of people.
The sciencey stuff…
Macadamia Nuts contain approximately 80% 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 power antioxidant that supports healthy cell membranes, hydrates skin and supports skin healing. The oil can minimise skin conditions such as dandruff, dry skin, dry hair and brittle nails.
These are the main benefits of using Macadamia Nut Oil in your skin care and on your hair:
• It won’t break you out, it will actually help the healing of breakouts and acne scars.
• Keeps your skin moisturised whilst also helping to balance oil production.
• It absorbs quickly without leaving a greasy residue.
• Applied on the hair it will leave your locks shiny, silky and moisturised.
Speaking of hair care…
The rich acid content of macadamia nut oil makes it super beneficial for your hair; missed into shampoo or using Macadamia specific shampoos can help to increase the shine and health of your hair, strengthen the follicles and reduce hair loss.
