This silky oil is a traditional Hawaiian oil that is extracted from the Macadamia Nut, which originated from Australia. It is odorless and clear and very similar to the body's own skin oil/sebum. It is rich in mono unsaturated oils, as well as oleic and palmitoleic acids. It is said that palmitoleic acid is a crucial ingredient for the health of the cell membranes, providing the lipid barrier that is needed to retain moisture and regenerate the layers of cells. Since the palmitoleic acid content of the skin decreases with age, Macadamia Oil is recommended for mature and dry skin.

This very light and pleasant oil is great as a base for facial, body and hair care products. It is also a wonderful cooking oil, that is very stable and remains fresh for a long time.

Soap Making
