10 Macadamia Nut Oil Benefits No One Told You About
The benefits of Macadamia Nut Oil for your skin and hair are countless. It can do all the following for your hair: condition your scalp, promote healthy hair growth, and soothe frizz.
Let's also understand how it works on your skin. It moisturizes your skin, prevents signs of ageing and works as a soothing agent against sunburns. With healthy skin and glossy hair, what's not to love about Macadamia Nut Oil! Here are 10 benefits that you must know to include it in your every day skin and hair routine.
What is the Macadamia Nut?
Macadamia Nuts are seeds produced by Macadamia Trees, a species of evergreen trees that are indigenous to Australia. These nuts have a subtle, butter-like flavor and a creamy texture. Macadamia Nuts are also known as the Queensland Nut, Bush Nut, Maroochi Nut, Bauple Nut, and Hawaii Nut.
Macadamia shells are the toughest to crack, which is why they are mostly sold with the shell. Once the husks are removed from ripe nuts, machinery is needed to break open the shells. Fun Fact - it takes 300 pounds of pressure per square inch to crack the shell.
However, what's more valuable is the Macadamia Nut Oil that can be extracted from these nuts for a number of benefits. It is clear to slightly amber in color and retains a slightly nutty flavor, to delight your senses.
1. It is light and versatile:
Unlike heavy natural butters and oils, Macadamia Nut Oil is intensely moisturising but non-comedogenic. That means that it won't clog or block the pores on your skin. No matter your skin type, oily or dry, it works well for everyone without causing any skin irritation or infections. This pure ingredient is so safe that it can be used all over your baby, too.
2. It helps in cell regeneration and boosts lip health:
A natural lip balm infused with Macadamia Nut Oil can significantly boost the appearance and health of your lips ‚ all thanks to its cell regeneration and rapid healing properties. It is rich in Omega 7 and Palmitoleic Acid that reduces any inflammation and helps to hydrate chapped lips instantly.
