Macadamia trees are a beautiful evergreen species prized for the flavorful and highly nutritious nuts that they produce. Originating in Australia, they are also known as Queensland Nuts. The nuts are a rich source of healthy lipids, vitamins, minerals and protein.

Macadamia nuts are one of the most difficult of nuts to extract from their shells. After carefully harvesting, husking and shelling the nuts, the nuts are then cold pressed below 45 degrees Celsius. The oil is then filtered but is not refined or deodorized. Our Macadamia Nut Oil is then carefully packaged and stored to maintain the purity, freshness and beneficial properties of this highly nutritive, cold pressed oil.


Important Note:

Our current lot of Macadamia Nut Oil is slightly out of spec. Please request a COA prior to purchase.


Uses:

Macadamia Nut Oil is a highly emollient oil that is primarily comprised of monounsaturated fatty acids including 14-25% Palmitoleic Acid. Uncommon within most vegetable oils, Palmitoleic Acid is an Omega-7 fatty acid that is a natural component of skin sebum and is highly beneficial in moisturizing and supporting healthy skin. Macadamia Nut Oil protects the skin, lips and hair from moisture loss when used in cosmetics and personal care product formulation. Within hair care applications, it helps moisturize and soothe the hair and scalp. It also helps to restore dull and damaged hair and provides natural shine. Due to its composition, viscosity and smooth glide when applied to the skin, Macadamia Nut Oil is also an exceptional lipid for use within massage applications.

Customer Testimonial

"I just wanted to write to say thank you. I have been purchasing products from your Web site for quite a while, namely rice bran, seaweed powders, camellia oil, dead sea salts and most recently, shea butter. I have very sensitive skin, and there aren't many products on the market that I don't develop a nasty rash from. I'm a research chemist, and many ingredients in mass market products are petrochemically derived. Although the by products may be trace, it is still enough to agitate my skin. It is also important for me to select products that do not have a vile effect on the environment. I ran an online search for rice bran to use as a gentle face wash and stumbled across FNWL. I was absolutely delighted with the delicate cleansing and calming effect it had on my face. Most recently, the shea butter I purchased has completely healed the eczema on my knees. I wanted to say thank you. Your product quality and prices are absolutely superb. "
