Macadamia Nut Oil

 
Macadamia integrifolia
May be known as Queensland Nut oil. This tree is native to Australia and is now grown commercially in Hawaii. Macadamia contains palmitoleic acid, a fatty acid that is also found in the sebum we produce that prevents the cell membranes from deteriorating. Our production of palmitoleic acid decreases with age. Macadamia great for aged or injured skin and to soften and heal wounds. Macadamia nut oil is quite stable with low rancidity and contains tocopherols.
