Macadamia oil is extracted from the delicious and extremely nutritious nuts of the tree of Macadamia, which originates from Australia. The macadamia oil is produced with cold pressing, below 45 degrees Celsius. It is virgin and not refined oil, with a light yellow to golden yellow color.
It consists mainly of 90% monounsaturated fatty acids, of which in a large proportion is palmitic acid (14-25%), an omega-7 fatty acid that is a natural component of skin sebum. It is safe, except in cases of allergy to nuts in general.
Macadamia Nut Oil protects the skin, lips and hair from moisture loss. Thus, it is considered ideal for hydrated skin and hair (maintaining hydrolipid balance).
ZЄLIA’s Macadamia oil is enriched with a mixture of tocopherols (vitamin E), stabilized in 0.06% sunflower oil, with antioxidant activity for both the oil and the skin.
