Ingredients: macadamia integrifolia seed oil (100% pure cold pressed macadamia oil).
Origin: South Africa.
Method of extraction: macadamia oil is made from macadamia Macadamia integrifolia nuts by cold pressing.
Macadamia nuts are unique and the most expensive nuts in the world, which grow less than produce black caviar.
Of all the oils, macadamia oil contains the lowest content of saturated fatty acids and extremely high levels of monounsaturated acids, which reduce the density of intercellular lipids in the stratum corneum and facilitate the entry of other substances into the deeper layers of the skin. Macadamia oil is easily absorbed into the skin and is called a “fast disappearing” oil. It is an ideal carrier oil when it is needed for the active substance to enter the deeper layers of the skin. Can be used as a carrier oil for essential oils (eg warming, soothing massages).
However, pure macadamia oil is not recommended for dry, flaky skin, as well as for skin with inflammation, eczema or psoriasis, as it can damage the barrier function of their skin.
Quite different with mature skin, which has a thicker stratum corneum, and it harder to deliver the active ingredients to deeper layers of cells. In this case it is just necessary to use helpers that facilitate absorbtion with the skin, and macadamia oil is an extremely good choice. Excellent carrier oil for masks, mixtures with essential oils, applications.
Macadamia oil perfectly softens dry and damaged hair. Ideal for oily scalp with greasy hair at the roots and dry and brittle ends. Masks with macadamia oil help reduce the oiliness of the scalp and protect the ends of the hair from splitting.
