Composition at a glance: Just over three-quarters of mono-unsaturated fatty acids (Omega 9) including the moisturizing palmitoleic acid and oleic acid. About a tenth of saturated fatty acids (palmitic acid).
Color and texture: Very pale yellow oil. Absorbs well.
Smell: Rather strong.
Note: Those allergic to nuts will most likely be allergic to the oil as well.
About: Macadamia oil contains generous amounts of palmitoleic acid, a constituent of cell membranes that, as such, promotes cell health. The oil seals in moisture without leaving a greasy feeling, and is wonderful for dry or hard skin. This oil is much appreciated by massage lovers as its texture provides excellent treatment.
