The Wonder of Kalahari Melon Oil

Meet the Kalahari Melon or "Citrullus Lanatus". ⠀

Kalahari Melons are indigenous melons that grow across the Kalahari Desert in Southern Africa. They're not like the sweet red fruit of the melons we're used to here in the States. The flesh of the Kalahari Melon is light yellow with a bitter taste. The melons are a vital source of water for the people living in the deserts of Africa. But for us, the seeds are where the real magic lies.

Traditionally, the seeds are a great source of protein, vitamins and minerals. And the oil made from the seeds is a light oil that has been used as a moisturizer and to promote clear skin.

We use Organic Kalahari Melon Oil our Avoila Nourishing Face Oilbecause it is high in linoleic acid, making it easy to absorb and is known to dissolve sebum and lock in moisture. The oil also contains vitamins A and E which are both powerful antioxidants that fight off free radicals caused by UV exposure. 

No wonder, it's been called the new "wonder ingredient." We'd have to agree.
