Macadamia Nut Oil

This oil is extracted from the nuts of the macadamia tree.  This oil penetrates into the skin easily, which makes it a wonderful moisturizer for dry skin.   It has anti-inflammatory properties, which help to soothe and calm the skin.  Due to its omega 6 linoleic acid levels, macadamia nut oil helps to balance out sebum production, which makes it great for oily skin because once the skin is moisturized it doesn’t need to overproduce oil.  One of our favorite ways to use macadamia nut oil is as a cleanser.  It’s particular great at removing eye makeup.  We use macadamia nut oil in our Island Oils, due to its moisturizing and cleansing properties.
