Macadamia Oil

The flavour of macadamia oil is clean, intense and rich.  Macadamia oil has one of the highest levels of monunsaturated fats of any tree nut oil and contains no cholesterol.  It is arguably one of the most versatile oils available for food service applications yet remains little known due more to the popularity and abundance of other vegetable oils.

Refined macadamia oil is a popular ingredient in cosmetics where the natural anti-oxidant qualities of the oil and high levels of palmitoleic acid make it ideal for application to the skin.  Macadamia oil contains approximately 60% oleic acid, 17% palmitoleic acid, 2% linoleic acid and 1% linolenic acid. It also contains 3% omega-6 and 3% omega-3.

Macadamia oil's rich, cushiony skin feel, high oxidative stability and high palmitoleic content make it especially suitable for medicated creams and suncare formulations.  Derivative of Macadamia oil in cosmetics include the light emollient Ethyl Macadamiate and water soluble PEG-16 Macadamia Glycerides.
