EWG SCORE: 1What is EWG?
Macadamia, or more apt Macadamia Oil, is extracted from the ‘meat’ of the macadamia nut or seed. Seemingly lesser well known compared to other oils like Jojoba, Macadamia Oil is able to hold its own through its own powerful profile of anti-oxidants, vitamins, minerals, and other properties.
A few of the constituents found within Macadamia Oil, Palmitoleic Acid, Squalene, and Oleic Acid, along with other components, have been found to promote skin regeneration and wound healing. In addition, macadamia oil has not been found to be very comedogenic, being readily accepted by the general population with low risk of adverse effects like clogged pores, while offering the ability to form a protective barrier on the skin similar to the role sebum plays to preserve moisture.
