Looking for a light oil that absorbs fairly quickly and has a re-hydrating punch? Give our latest import from South Africa, Kalahari Melon Seed Oil Virgin a try.
Kalahari melons grow in the arid conditions of the Kalahari Desert and yet are considered a super hydrating fruit. During the drought season, villagers use its juice in place of water. Yum!
For topical benefits, the seeds are pressed to release their naturally occurring oils which can be added to body care formulations or used as-is by applying a few drops directly on your skin. Research shows that this oil holds high amounts of Omega-6 fatty acid, at similar levels to evening primrose oil.
This oil is virgin, meaning it has not been refined by steam or heat treatments. It has been cold filtered using a clay filtration system. Kalahari Melon Seed Oil Virgin still holds its natural scent, similar to the odor of watermelon rind. It’s not a sweet-smelling oil, but rather a green almost grassy scent. Please take this into consideration when purchasing this oil, as the scent may pass through into your formulation. As for me, I love its natural scent!
INCI: Citrullus lanatus (kalahari) Seed Oil
