Macadamia Oil

Macadamia Oil

Macadamia oil has high levels of palmitoleic acid, Omega 7, a fatty acid with similar structure to the most prominent fatty acid found naturally in human skin. Macadamia oil has been used for centuries to rejuvenate skin. Rick in antioxidants, our oil is sourced responsibly from the heart of the rainforest and pressed from the finest macadamia seeds. The palmitoleic acid and squalene present in macadamia seed oil help to prevent the premature formation of wrinkles by boosting the regeneration of skin keratinocytes. Linoleic acid also helps to reduce trans-epidermal water loss, keeping the skin well-hydrated and supple. Macadamia nut oil is rich in monounsaturated fats and an excellent source of Vitamin E, making it easy for your skin to absorb without feeling greasy. These fatty acids nourish the skin, help combat dry skin and lock in moisture. It mimics your skin's natural oils, allowing you to maintain your natural glow. Both Palmitoleic and Oleic Acid help the skin cells known as keratinocytes to produce keratin in the outermost layer of our skin. Like collagen, keratin is a protein necessary for healthy skin. Keratin protects your skin barrier and works hard to keep your skin firm. This protective skin barrier keeps out skin damaging pathogens and potentially dangerous environmental factors (think smoke, pollution, UV…) A cruelty free and vegan source of the essential fatty acid, Squalene has been found in Macadamia Oil. Squalene is a lipid that our skin cells produce naturally, it keeps our skin hydrated and healthy and reduces oxidative stress.Squalene maintains the fluidity of cell membranes which is crucial to the outer layer of the skin.  Skin high in squalene is hydrated and healthy. Dry and damaged skin is low in squalene. EWG Score- 1
