Macadamia integrifolia seed oil is a plant-derived (Botanical) ingredient, cold pressed from the nuts of Australian macadamia trees. The oil has a high anti-oxidant content and deep skin penetrating properties, which make it ideal for dry or ageing skin. Macadamia oil is very gentle and is absorbed rapidly into the skin, giving the product a silky luxurious feel.
Macadamia Oil has a unique compatibility with the human skin. The oil, obtained from the nuts of the Australian macadamia tree, contains a high concentration of palmitoleic acid, which is very similar to the sebum of human skin. No other known plant oil has a similar composition.
