Period after opening (PAO) refers to the amount of time a product will remain stable and safe for human use after it has first been opened. The time period is represented as a number of months, followed by the letter "M".
Can your product be used for children?
Macadamia Beauty products are safe for all ages. As with any hair product not designed specifically for children, please refrain from getting it in their eyes.
Macadamia is a nut, so what about people with nut allergies and allergic reactions?
The Macadamia “nut” is actually a seed, not a nut. It belongs to the Proteaceae family, which is classified separately from most other tree nuts and from peanuts. Allergens are less common in this family compared to other tree nuts or peanuts. The oil from the Macadamia “nut” may cause a reaction in select few people with Macadamia-specific sensitizations. Additionally, the primary allergen found in Macadamia oil is only present in raw and roasted extracts. To date there have been zero reports of Macadamia Beauty products causing allergic reactions in those suffering from nut allergies. We recommend people who have nut allergies err on the side of caution and perform a self-patch test before use:
1. Apply a small amount of product to elbow, wrist or neck
2. Cover with a bandage and wait 24hrs
3. If no reaction occurs, you should be safe to use the product.
4. Repeat steps 1-3 if you are still unsure
