Clearwater Apothecary is one of the leading suppliers of Macadamia Nut Oil - Virgin along with other speciality oils and butters. Macadamia Nut Oil - Virgin is expeller pressed from the kernels of the macadamia tree’s fruit, yielding a versatile lightweight oil naturally high in palmitoleic and oleic fatty acid content. This oil is virgin, meaning it is unrefined and therefore carries a characteristic color and nutty aroma with natural variation due to the raw material. Macadamia nut oil is relatively stable with resistance to oxidation due to its fatty acid makeup and has a higher smoke point than a large portion of other vegetable oils.
Macadamia Nut Oil - Virgin is an excellent ingredient in cosmetic and personal-care formulations due to its natural emollient properties. It is easily absorbed into the skin, making it a common carrier oil used in topical skincare products such as face serums, lotions, skin creams, and moisturizers. In addition to personal-care uses, macadamia nut oil is sought-after throughout the culinary industry as a cooking oil and in a variety of sauces, salad dressings, and packaged food items.
