Kalahari Melon carrier oil - Citrullus lanatus - South Africa
The Kalahari Melon is the original species of watermelon and originated in the Kalahari desert. It is a light, penetrating oil, with moisturising, regenerating and restructuring properties. Rich in antioxidants and omega 6 & 9 essential fatty acids (which are not synthesized by the body), these fatty acids contribute to the integrity of the cell wall and to the suppleness and beauty of the skin, while playing a role in regulation of hydration and restructuring of the epidermis. You will find Kalahari Melon oil in our truly African Skin Naturals bar.
