Why you need macadamia oil in your skincare routine

Nourishing and hydrating 

For a moisturising and restorative addition to your skincare routine, look no further than cosmetic grade macadamia oil with its highly nourishing properties.  Sourced from the pulp of macadamia nuts, macadamia oil is a lightweight yet hydrating oil that is easily absorbed into your skin without leaving it feeling greasy.   

Restore your glow 

Over time, essential fatty acids (Omega 6,7 and 9) in our skin reduce and make way for fine lines and wrinkles. Macadamia oil, with its high levels of essential fatty acids, help to restore the skin’s natural barrier and reduce the signs of ageing.  It also has anti-inflammatory and anti-microbial properties to calm and protect your skin. Macadamia oil has been shown to promote healing, improve the appearance of scars and cure minor skin irritations 

Follow our step-by-step process for glowing skin 

Cleanse your skin first 

Your first step each morning and night should be to cleanse your skin.  After than you should gently exfoliate at least three times a week.  As we age the dead top layers of skin become slow at shedding and need a little helping hand.  Exfoliating regularly will help macadamia oil to absorb even faster into your skin. 

Gently apply macadamia oil

Apply macadamia oil before or after your moisturiser – the choice is yours  

Face oil is typically applied after moisturiser as it is deemed the thickest layer.  However, macadamia is so light and absorbs so well into your skin that you can also apply it under moisturiser 

Place 5 to 6 dops of macadamia oil into your hand and press all over your face and neck, avoiding the eye area. It’s best to ‘press’ the oil into your skin rather than rub it in.   

Add a little to your makeup 

For an extra radiance boost, why not add a little to your foundation.  A drop of macadamia oil mixed with your foundation will boost your hydration even more and create a long-lasting glow. 

Macadamia Oil is one of the botanical ingredients in our facial oils. The antioxidant-rich, cosmetic grade Macadamia Oil is filled with nourishing Vitamin E and fatty acids. The extract emulates the texture of skin’s natural sebum - helping to lock in the nutrient benefits of each serum without feeling greasy.
