Macadamia oil for natural cosmetics and food
Due to its almost ideal ratio of omega-3 and omega-6 fatty acids, macadamia oil is becoming increasingly popular. In the kitchen it is used to make salad dressings and to refine cold dishes. In cosmetics, it is used as a soothing massage oil or bath additive, for rich body care creams or as a shine-giving hair oil.
Macadamia oil is an oil extracted from the nuts of the macadamia tree. Our macadamia nuts are cold pressed in the ISO 9001 & 14001 certified oil factory to produce high quality organic macadamia nut oil, virgin and fair for Life certified. This means that the natural nuts are pressed purely mechanically without any external thermal influence in a snail press.
Snail presses ensure a clean and continuous pressing operation. They are considered "state of the art technology" and thus a future-proof method. The gentle pressing process preserves the natural taste and sensory properties of the macadamia nut.
Macadamia oil is high in monounsaturated fatty acids, which are considered healthy fats and can help reduce inflammation and improve heart health. It also contains antioxidants, vitamin E, and omega-3 and omega-6 fatty acids, which can provide a number of health benefits.
Macadamia oil is used for cooking and baking, as well as in cosmetics and personal care products. The oil is a clear, light yellow liquid with a nutty flavor and a high smoke point, making it suitable for high-heat cooking methods such as frying, sautéing, and roasting.
In addition to its culinary uses, macadamia oil is also used in skin and hair care products for its moisturizing properties. It can moisturize and nourish skin and hair, leaving them feeling soft and smooth.
