Flavonoids, antioxidants, and the right balance of essential fatty acids are just a few of the many anti-aging skin benefits of macadamia nut seed oil.The oil of macadamia nuts is similar to your skin’s natural sebum and hydrates without clogging pores. This anti-aging oil absorbs, deeply soothes, moisturizes, and helps to heal scars, sunburn, and dry patches for that fresh, firm look that we are hoping to achieve. Full of antioxidants and other wellness benefits, macadamia nut seed oil fights free radicals that cause oxidative damage. Oxidative damage breaks down the protective skin barrier and we experience premature aging and disease.
Macadamia nut seed oil is also a good source of palmitoleic acid (omega 7), another powerful antioxidant that supports healthy cell membranes, hydrates the skin, and speeds healing. Macadamia nut seed oil has vitamin E, which is both an antioxidant AND essential nutrient. Vitamin E neutralizes free radicals to protect skin and transports nutrients and water throughout the body. It’s also an emollient to hydrate and heal.
