Why We Use Macadamia In Our Body Care Products

At PEDALIT we believe in the natural goodness of the macadamia nut. So much so, we have sourced our oil direct from the farm in the Byron Bay hinterland, to be used in our Body Care products. So why the Macadamia Nut?


 A Non-Greasy Oil

Macadamia oil, unlike conventional hair oil, does not make the hair greasy. It gets easily absorbed into the scalp, seeping into the layers of the skin. You can use macadamia oil as a serum too. Take a few drops of macadamia oil and rub it between the palms. Smooth it through the hair to get a frizz free look.

Prevents Dry Hair

Macadamia nuts contain palmitoleic acid, a monounsaturated fat that promotes the production of sebum in the scalp. This replenishes the follicles, rejuvenating the hair. It also moisturizes and strengthens rough and dry hair. Add a little macadamia nut oil to your conditioner and apply it to the hair. This will make the hair silky and smooth. Regular hair massage with macadamia oil increases shine, rebuilds elasticity, and stimulates hair growth.

Macadamia Shampoo

Macadamia shampoo is very beneficial for the health of the hair. Shampoos containing this nut are ideal for dry and damaged hair. The shampoo replenishes moisture without making the hair heavy. It also protects the hair from environmental conditions.


Macadamia Oil for Dry Skin

Macadamia is very effective for treating dry and damaged skin. Regular application softens, moisturises, and adds a glow to the dehydrated skin. The emollient properties of macadamia oil benefits to reduce wrinkles and dryness. Macadamia oil is suited for all skin types, including oily skin. It is light, non-greasy and gets absorbed easily into the skin.


This amazing nut contains several anti-ageing compounds that bring down the rate at which the skin ages. Palmitoleic acid in macadamia nuts not only prevents the signs of ageing but also removes it. The acid retains the suppleness of the skin and gives it a youthful appearance, and we all like that.

With these amazing qualities of Australia’s indigenous wonder nut, it is no surprise they are in high demand all over the world. We are very proud to present our Body Care range with Byron Bay macadamia nut oil.
