Kalahari Melon Oil
The Kalahari Melon (citrullus lanatus), also known as the Tsamma melon or wild watermelon is the biological ancestor of the common watermelon now found worldwide. The fruit is bitter rather than sweet with a banded yellow rind and is very well adapted to surviving the harsh Kalahari desert environment where it is found. It has high antioxidant activity which may help with its survival.
Extracted from the seeds of the Kalahari Melon, Kalahari Melon Oil is rich in palmitic and oleic acids and is very high in linoleic acid, the fatty acid known for its skincare benefits, as well as omega-6 fatty acids. Kalahari Melon Oil is considered to be non-comedogenic. Kalahari Melon Oil is non-GMO.
