Kalahari Melon Oil Facial Moisturiser with Crocodile Oil for Dehydrated Skin
Replacing rich moisturiser with a lightweight oil-based one is an ideal way to ensure that sensitive or acne-prone skin gets much-needed hydration. When facing outdoor winds or dehydrating indoor environments, Repcillin Kalahari Melon Oil Facial Moisturiser with Crocodile Oil for Dehydrated Skin provides soothing barrier protection and intensive moisturisation. Based on Kalahari Melon oil, this light moisturiser is easily absorbed and has remarkable properties, which work to replenish and regenerate moisture while restructuring the epidermis of the skin. Kalahari Melon oil is rich in essential fatty acids, especially linoleic, oleic and palmitic, and has high antioxidant content.
The Kalahari melon (citrullus lanatus) is also known as the Tsamma melon or wild watermelon and is the biological ancestor of the common watermelon now found worldwide. It is a creeping annual herb with hairy stems and bright yellow flowers.
Unlike the common watermelon, whose flesh is sweet and red, the Kalahari melon’s juicy flesh is pale yellow or green, and tastes bitter. Kalahari melon fruits are small and round in the wild, but larger and oval when cultivated. They have smooth pale green skin marked with mottled bands of darker green radiating from the stalk.
The Kalahari melon is highly adapted to surviving drought and the harsh light of the desert environment. Although found all over Southern Africa, it is most closely associated with the Kalahari sands of Namibia, Botswana, south-western Zambia and western Zimbabwe. It belongs to the botanical family of Cucurbitaceae.
Our Organic Kalahari Melon oil is cold pressed and sustainably wild harvested in South Africa as part of a community empowerment project.
