- Thoroughly cleanses oils, dirt, pollution, make-up, including mascara and sunblock

- Deeply nourishes and protects skin barrier function
- Boosts collagen and elastin synthesis
- Improves micro-circulation
Macadamia, also known as Queensland Nut Tree or Maroochy Nut, is an Australian Indigenous plant that is exceptionally high in the rare Omega-7. Sometimes called the 'Beauty Omega' and found also in Sea Buckthorne Oil, Omega-7 increases the synthesis of elastin and collagen, proteins that keep skin strong and healthy, and reduces the onset of wrinkles. Macadamia helps to restore the skin's natural omega balance, protecting skin cells and supporting cellular health.
Macadamia also contains high amounts of squalene and oleic acid that assist with cell regeneration. Squalene, with an 'e', (not to be confused with the synthesised Squalane with an 'a'), is naturally produced by the body with the sole purpose of keeping skin moisturised - and macadamias are full of it!
Additionally, Macadamias contain potent phytosterols that provide skin protection and repair, as well as useful amounts of manganese, which is an antioxidant and essential mineral required for collagen production.
Macadamia's fatty acids have anti-inflammatory properties that are helpful for all skins, including acne-prone skins.
These Omega-rich cleansing oils include the beautiful Australian Sandalwood (Santalum spicatum). Like its Indian cousin, Australian sandalwood is highly prized in skin care. Rich in Omega 3, 6, 9, and the rare ximenynic acid. Ximenynic Acid has a significant impact on the skin aging process as it increases microcirculation, reduces enlarged pores and distension and discoloration of the skin and firms the skin.
Founder's Formula Macadamia Omega-7 Cleansing Oil is created with Certified Organic Macadamia oil and wild-harvested Australian desert sandalwood as a nutritious, lightweight oil cleanser that emulsifies with water to a cleansing milk, gently yet effectively dissolving makeup, even waterproof mascara, sunblock and natural skin grime and odors. It can be used for face and body.
Although Macadamia is a rich oil, it is very light with a low comedogenic rating.
