Adamia, what a great name, please tell us your inspiration for choosing that name and how the brand got its start.
Adamia is the back half of macadamia. Macadamia Oil is the key ingredient for our lotion.
The brand started with the philosophy of caring and a tree. Skin irritations can interrupt life and it is it more evident among our aging population. We know because for years, we have taken of those aging patients, family and friends, whose skin is in need of a solution that was natural and effective. We refused to believe that only products laden with petroleum and other scary chemicals could be clinically effective. We found that very solution in the macadamia tree, a tree simple in natural beauty but complex in its skin-health benefits.
What are the benefits of Macadamia Oil?
Macadamia oil is the closest oil of all botanical oils to human skin oil. Therefore, it restores the skin with the oil and moisture that is lost as it ages. Also, because it is so similar to our natural skin oil, Macadamia Oil quickly penetrates the outer layer of your skin, absorbing it can help calm and soothe irritated skin.
How did you come up with the idea of Therapeutic Repair Lotion with Macadamia Oil featuring Promega-7?
We came up with this idea because we knew that we needed to find a product that helped restore the skin’s natural oils without mixing our product with chemicals or petroleum. So, we turned to one of nature’s richest restorative skin lipids, omega-7, which are found in Macadamia Oil, a unique botanical oil due to its high content of palmitoleic acid, or omega-7. However, as skin matures, omega-7 levels dramatically drop. Most “moisturizing” lotions rely on creating a barrier on the surface of the skin to “lock in” moisture. Because the skin’s real deficiency is the lack of natural oils, true hydration of the skin cannot be achieved without oil replacement. We then blend this remedy with clinically proven moisturizers to create the exclusive Promega-7. The results concluded, inflamed skin is quieted and life is restored.
Talk to us about Promega-7 and its benefits?
Promega-7 is a proprietary blend of clinically proven moisturizers. It is important because we have this blend because Adamia Therapeutic Repair lotion has the benefits of dual replacement therapy. On one hand, we have the benefits of pure Macadamia Oil that replaces the skin’s natural oil that is lost over time. On the other hand, we have the moisture that the skin will absorb quickly into your skin to help calm and soothe the irritation.
Is this lotion recommended for all skin types?
Absolutely! Adamia Therapeutic Repair lotion has been dermatologist tested and shown to be safe for even sensitive skin. It is also a non-comedogenic lotion, so you can use it on your face.
What can people expect when they use the Therapeutic Lotion?
First, the lotion overall feels really great on your skin. It absorbs quickly, which most people love. As you now know, the reason it absorbs so quickly is because the Macadamia Oil matches your own skin oil. Unlike a petroleum-based lotion that doesn’t match your skin oil, therefore it is unable to absorb quickly or at all.
We did a large clinical trial with seniors living in nursing homes because we knew most of them had a large variety of skin irritations. Upon conclusion, we were convinced that if we could help the seniors with their various skin problems, we could help anyone’s. We saw improvements when our lotion was applied to the skin within a day. The improvements continued over the trail, then we saw an overall improvement in skin thinning and even skin tears. There were significant changes after using for four weeks, which continued to show positive results for the entire 3-month clinical trial.
How long can they expect to see results?
As long as they continue to use the product, they will have the benefit of retaining moisture to their skin.
What’s next for Adamia?
We are excited to launch a therapeutic hand cream with all of the same benefits as the lotion. This cream is specially formulated for hands and cuticles. We also have a therapeutic repair foot cream, which should launch early this summer, just in time for flip-flop weather! The foot cream also has the same benefits as the lotion, but with a natural pineapple enzyme to help break through the dry and thick skin on the heels of your feet.
