Other than being totally delicious, did you know that macadamia nut oil offers a whole range of health benefits – and not just for your beautiful skin? Although we could go on and on about these, we are going to zero in on the miraculous macadamia oil skin benefits in today’s post.
Having the ability to be taken either orally or topically, this wonderful oil has a chemical profile very similar to the human sebum. With so many marvellous properties, we struggled to keep this list to 5 benefits. It’s really no wonder this amazing ingredient features in so many of the Bee Sensual range of skin products!
5 Miraculous Macadamia Oil Skin Benefits
The perfect choice for mature or dry skin
Macadamia nut oil contains one of the highest sources of palmitoleic fatty acids, an acid that exists naturally in our skin, but depletes as we age. Topping up our stores via skin treatment helps to lubricate and waterproof the skin, just like sebum.
Heals your wounds
Did we mention how amazing palmitoleic acid is? Just incase you aren’t convinced, the omega 7 in this incredible fatty acid also aids in healing wounds, scratches and burns. The anti-inflammatory properties can also help reduce eczema or other skin irritations.
Balances oily skin
Yes, you read correctly! Oil – at least the miraculous macadamia variety – contains linoleic acid which balances sebum production in oily skin and creates a natural protective barrier.
Treats itchiness and redness
The phytosterols in macadamia nut oil are calming and healing and help restore the skin’s barrier function.
Slight natural sunscreen
Containing a natural SPF of between 6-8, the powerful plant compound known as cinnamic acid which is contained in macadamia nut oil offers natural sun protection properties.
