For the hair as well as for the skin, it is a real beauty asset! Discover today Macadamia Oil, an essential ingredient with multiple benefits.
Macadamia Oil is derived from the Macadamia nut. Its discovery dates back to the 19th century, in the land of the kangaroos! Indeed, these nuts grow on a tree nicknamed the Queensland Walnut, the latter being an arid region of Australia. Today, this country remains the world’s largest producer.
From April to September, several times a day, Macadamia nuts are picked ripe. In order to remove all humidity, they are then dried and cold-pressed to produce Macadamia Vegetable Oil.
Rich in proteins, antioxidants and fatty acids, including Omega-9, this oil is very similar to the sebum of our skin, thus having a beneficial action on our epidermis.
For the skin
If Macadamia Oil is so beneficial, it is due to its extraordinary composition. It is enriched with palmitoleic acid, a monounsaturated fatty acid, which has the effect of protecting the lipid cell membrane. Thus, applied on the face, lips or body, it brings protection and hydration to our epidermis, and helps to reduce all itching.
If you wish to discover the moisturizing and protective power of this oil, adopt our Shea Lip Stick! Enriched with Macadamia Oil, it helps you to regain soft and supple lips thanks to its melting texture. This care is essential for dry to very dry skin in need of intense hydration.
But palmitoleic acid has a second function: it promotes cell regeneration and has a repairing action. Macadamia Oil then softens the skin and helps sensitive skin to fight inflammation and redness.
Macadamia Oil also has a high concentration of Vitamin E, which gives it antioxidant properties. Thus, it restores elasticity to the skin and helps prevent the appearance of stretch marks and reduce their appearance.
For the hair
This oil will also take great care of your hair. It helps protect it from the sun’s rays, especially the UV lights.
If your hair is coloured, Macadamia Oil is also your best ally! Indeed, it will allow you to maintain your hair colour for longer, even if you go on holiday in the sun.
It also helps to deeply rehydrate the hair fibers. Apply it in an oil bath for 30 minutes, then rinse and clean with our So Vintage Shea Shampoo. Your hair will come out soft and shiny.
So, what are you waiting for? Adopt it!
