Cosmetics

  • The fatty acid composition of Macadamianut Oil is very similar to human sebum   
  • Palmitoleic acid, which is found in the skin, improves absorption and spreads well  
  • Well suited for use on dry, rough and sensitive skin; has a smoothing and regenerating effect on the Skin   
  • The oleic acid allows cosmetic agents to penetrate deep into the skin and has a fluidising effect
  • Macadamianut Oil contains little linoleic acid and is enhanced when combined with oils rich in linoleic acid, for example Evening Primrose Oil and Hemp Oil   
  • This valuable oil is used in a broad range of cosmetic products, such as in moisturising and anti-wrinkle creams, body oils, regenerating cosmetics, massage oil, shampoos, conditioners etc.   
  • Used as an alternative for mink oil, which is criticised for animal welfare reasons
