Macadamia Nut Oil In Cosmetics
This amazing oilcold-pressed from organically grown macadamia nutsimparts a delicate, nutty aroma and flavour that brings out the natural goodness of your favorite foods without overpowering them. And, it boasts a higher smoke point than olive oil, which means that its beneficial fatty acids resist degradation during cooking. But one of the great things about macadamia nut oil.
In 2003 Australian research shows that macadamia nut lowers total and LDL cholesterol levels. It is a balanced nut oil that offers a nutritionally ideal omega-3 to omega-6 fatty acid ratio of 1-to-1, and more heart-healthy monounsaturated fat.
J. David Curb a professor doing research at the University of Hawaii has found that a diet rich in macadamia nut oil can improve heart structure in rats as well as moderate their weight. “Macadamia nuts have a bad reputation for having a lot of fat, but it turns out the fats dont impact cholesterol”. A nutritional analysis of olive oil and macadamia nut oil shows olive oil contains 70% monounsaturated fats whilst macadamia nut oil contains 85% monounsaturated fats with 22% omega-7.
It doesnt get better than that.
Macadamia oil is sometimes used in cosmetic formulations as an emollient or fragrance fixative. It is the non-volatile oil expressed from the nut meat of the macadamia (Macadamia integrifolia) tree, a native Australian nut.
This makes it a cruelty free product that so many of us value in cosmetics. Its rich, cushiony feel and high oxidative stability makes it especially suitable for enriching night creams, sun care lotion and other skincare applications.
If you check out skin care products and find macadamia nut oil in the ingredients chances are you are holding in your hands an organic skin care product that will truly benefit your skin and body. Go for the best and feed your skin nutritions instead of asking your skin to be happy about chemical skin care that promises more than it can ever deliver.
