Ingredients: Macadamia Integrifolia Seed Oil
Botanical name: Macadamia integrifolia
Many people overlook Macadamia when they think about Australian Native Bush Foods due to the industry being well developed both here in Australia from where the nut originates and overseas. However, the nut provided many First Nations people with a tasty and substantive food and medicine source. The tree traditionally grows around the northern NSW area, the land of the Bundjalung people where the local name for this is Gumbar.
Extraction method: Cold pressed
Common uses: Macadamia oil is a very popular, all purpose carrier oil. It is used by manufacturers (particularly as a conditioning agent in hair care products), aromatherapists, and massage therapists.
Macadamia oil is a fantastic regenerative oil. It is high in mono-unsaturated fatty acids, it contains Palmitoleic acid (promotes soft skin), as well as omega 3 and omega 6 fatty acids. It has been successfully used to help heal scars and sunburns and is considered safe to use in facial and baby products.
Consistency: Typical and characteristic of carrier oils
Absorption: Absorbs into skin at average speed, slight oil feeling left on skin.
