Why do we use Macadamia oil in so many of our products?
Mostly because of Squalene. If you’re like me and are a little obsessed with skin care products especially natural skin care, you’ve heard of Squalene. Used as a stand alone serum or blended with other hydrating or moisturising ingredients, Squalene is a big part of most people’s skin care routine. Whether they know it or not. SO what actually is it?
Squalene is a natural lipid produced by our skin cells. It maintains the health and hydration of our skin.
Our skin's ability to create Squalene slows down throughout our 20s and 30s, and our skin becomes coarser and drier.
Squalene, which was previously derived from shark livers, aids in the reduction of oxidative stress, skin protection, and wrinkle prevention.
This is where Macadamia enters the picture!
Squalene, an important fatty acid found in Macadamia Oil, is a cruelty-free and vegan source.
Squalene helps to keep cell membranes fluid, which is important for the skin's outer layer. Squalene-rich skin is moisturised and healthy. Squalene levels are low in dry and damaged skin.

In last weeks’ blog we talked about the amazing benefits of regularly practicing gratitude; Improved mental & physical health, self-esteem boosting, relationship building. So it’s no secret that we are all about that gratitude life now. But what’s the best way to practice gratitude? How do we do it? Is there an easy way?
There isn’t one, simple way of practicing gratitude that is going to work for everyone (well, we haven’t found it yet). But here are the ways that have been working for our team & hopefully you’ll find a few that suit you too.
According to research, practicing gratitude as a kind of self-care is one approach to achieve a healthier, less-stressed life. Regular expressions of thankfulness have been linked to improved optimism, better sleep, fewer physical ills, and lower levels of anxiety and depression.
Here are a few reasons to get your mind and body in the zone for more positive thoughts;
With its creamy texture and natural sweetness, coconut milk tastes like it should be bad for you. And yet, it's anything but! And did you realise that coconut milk isn't really "milk" at all? It is a liquid that is naturally present in mature coconuts and is kept inside the "meat" of the coconut. Coconut water is the liquid that comes out when a fresh coconut is cracked open. However, the coconut "meat" becomes a thicker coconut "milk" when it is blended and strained.
But why do we love it so much!? For the skin benefits of course. Check out some of the reasons that make our Coconut Bath Milk one of our favourite (and most popular) products that we make!
