Pokonobe's Specialty Natural Oils


Macadamia Nut Oil is used in skin care and facial products, baby products, lip balms, and suntan lotions, and is the only plant-derived oil that contains a large amount of palmitoleic acid. Studies have shown that the skin may lose this acid as we age, and that the presence of palmitoleic acid plays an active role in the slowing of lipid peroxidation. Therefore, it is thought that Macadamia Nut Oil may be beneficial in the preserving of skin cells.

Macadamia Nut Oil has an unusually long shelf life, and, unlike most other oils, after opening it can be stored at room temperature for many months. Macadamia Nut Oil is 80% monounsaturated. It has an exceptionally high smoke point (389 degrees F) making it excellent for sautéing and stir-frying. It is also used as a salad oil and in most baked goods.
