Citrullus Lanatus (Watermelon) Seed Oil
Watermelon Seed Oil is a fast-absorbing oil from the wild watermelon, the Kalahari melon. This nutritive oil is high in linoleic and oleic acids, helping soothe skin with its moisturizing capabilities while improving elasticity. Did we mention Watermelon Seed Oil is non-comedogenic? These properties make Watermelon Seed Oil perfect any formula you're making, whether its for babies, acne-prone individuals or mature skin.
Our Watermelon Seed Oil undergoes a patented extraction process that naturally stabilizes the oil for a 5-year shelf life.
Wild Kalahari melons are collected and the seeds are removed and dried. The seeds are then cold pressed and refined through natural processes to reduce the odor, color, and pesky free fatty acids. This is where internal stabilization happens! The oil is then filtered through a physical micron filter, revealing a clear, golden oil.
