***Because this oil comes from the seed of the fruit, rather than the fruit itself, the aroma is very earthy and does not resemble the aroma of an actual watermelon.
Watermelon seed (aka Kalahari Melon Seed) oil is a highly salubrious and easily absorbing oil which works wonders for dry and damaged skin. It is high in antioxidants such as lycopene and works to prevent premature aging because it acts as a humectant (retaining moisture in the skin). It is an exceptionally emollient oil which infuses a silky glow to your face.
It is known to act as an anti-aging oil, antioxidant, antiseptic, antitumor, demulcent, diuretic, emollient, febrifuge, hypotensive, moisturizer, purgative, and anthelmintic oil.
Watermelon seed oil is an exotic and therapeutic addition to cosmetic applications, personal care formulations, soaps, skin, and hair care.
