Macadamia nuts are made of about 70% oil, which gives them a buttery texture. Simmered in soft water, they produce a creamy milk which moisturises and conditions hair and skin.
Macadamia ternifolia is a tropical evergreen tree native to the coastal rainforests of Australia. The trees produce an abundance of fragrant white or pale pink, flowers, each of which may mature into up to twenty fruits. When mature, the leathery outer shell splits, freeing the hard-shelled, rounded nut.
