Intriguing facts about macadamia oil

  • It has a very similar composition to our skin’s own sebum.
  • It has a long shelf life and can keep for up to two years.
  • It is very rich in Omega-9 fatty acids for skin that craves moisture.
  • The shell of the macadamia nut contains high levels of Vitamin E.

Where does macadamia oil come from?

The macadamia nut was discovered for the first time in 1857 in Australia on the macadamia tree. These trees are evergreen and can grow as tall as 12 metres. It may take around 10 years for a tree to start producing nuts for macadamia oil and they tend to live around 100 years. Even today, Australia remains the biggest producer of macadamia nut oil, closely followed by the American state of Hawaii – but it is available to buy all over the world.
To create this powerful beauty oil, ripened macadamia nuts are picked five to six times a day, before being dried and cured to reduce their moisture level. They are then pressed to create the rich and nutritious macadamia oil that has become a global skin care sensation.
