Macadamia Nut Oil For A Beautiful Skin

Benefits of Macadamia Nut Oil in Skin care

Macadamia nut oil  has an amazing affinity with the skin and it is one the oil I use in Pure products. It can be taken both topically and internally.

Each precious drop is SO rich in essential fatty acids, it will have your skin crying out for more.

Not convinced? Then join me, as I introduce you into one of nature’s best kept secrets.

Macadamia Nut Oil

  • A light weight, medium nutty oil
  • Its chemical profile is very similar to that of human sebum
  • It is a very stable oil, with a shelf life of up to two years
  • It’s perfect for heart health as it contains the perfect balance of essential fatty acids
  • It has a non greasy feel on the skin, which gives the oil a nice workable film
  • Its palmitoleic and oleic acid profile, makes it the perfect choice for a mature or dry skin
  • Phytosterols are protective, aiding in skin recovery, they work like cortisone on the skin helping to reduce itchiness and inflammation
  • The linoleic fatty acid content, makes it great for a skin that has difficulty retaining moisture

Fatty Acid Profile

Palmitoleic acid
The oil contains one of the highest sources of palmitoleic fatty acids, between 16 to 23%.

Palmitoleic is vital for delaying skin and premature ageing; As our skin ages it rapidly becomes depleted in this important fatty acid, which is why macadamia is the perfect inclusion for mature skin types.

By applying the oil topically, you will improve your skin’s palmitoleic acid levels, this decreases the rate your skin will deteriorate, keeping it taut and discouraging wrinkles from forming.

Oleic acid
This Fatty Acid gives macadamia nut oil its fantastic regenerating and moisturising properties.

Linoleic acid 
This is a wonderful fatty acid, that helps to prevent trans-epidermal water loss (TEWL) from the skins delicate tissues.

High in phytosterols
These have a real affinity with the skin, plant phytosterols are the building blocks of our cellular membrane and structure.

Sterols work the same way that cholesterol does in our skin, which is one of the reasons why macadamia nut oil has great skin penetration abilities.

Phytosterols are also calming and healing, which is why it is known to help repair the skin’s barrier function.

Beautifying Skin From the Inside

My motto is “what goes on goes in” and this is certainly true for macadamia nut oil, containing all those beneficial fatty acids.

Whenever you consume this oil, your giving yourself a real health and beauty boost.

Oleic acid protects your heart from disease and reduces cholesterol levels.

The fact that the oil is low in saturated fat and rich in the the all important mono-unsaturated and poly-unsaturated fatty acids, is what makes it so heart healthy.

Macadamia nut oil contains the perfect ratio of essential fatty acids, that are not naturally created by the body.

Omega 3 fatty acids are an anti-inflammatory, whilst omega 6 work as a pro-inflammatory, which is why it is a great oil for those who suffer from sensitive skin conditions.

This is why applying macadamia nut oil topically and taking it internally, will help achieve that crucial essential fatty acid balance, your diet requires for health.

Palmitoleic acid is a potent antioxidant known to support healthy cell membranes, hydrating the skin and supporting skin healing.


So just to recap, the beneficial fatty acid profile, of this all important oil are as follows:

  • Oleic acid is a moisturising, anti-inflammatory, making it perfect for a dry, sensitive skin types
  • Linoleic acid restores the skin’s barrier function and keeps skin hydrated
  • Palmitoleic Acid is extremely healing and repairing
  • Phytosterols act as penetration enhancers, delivering the important benefits to the deepest layers of your skin
  • It contains the perfect 1-to-1 ratio of essential fatty acids, making it essential for heart health

So as you can see, it provides all the building blocks necessary for your skin.

So go on I dare you to smear it in, and feel the oh so wholesome macadamia nut love.

About the Author:

Pure natural cosmetics is not just a name, for me and many others it became a way of life! All my life I had an affinity to healthy life style. As a dancer and a trainer, i was always looking for the good combination of healthy food and healthy movement. In time I learned that its not only what you eat that matters. Also what you use as cosmetics or medical products is important. The skin is the biggest organ in our body. About 60% of what we put on our skin gets into the blood system and with that to the inner organs. I invest my heart and soul into “Pure natural cosmetics” and the best part is to hear the amazing comments from my client.
