Kalahari Melon Seed Oil

Kalahari melon seed oil is cold-pressed and filtered from the seeds of the Kalahari Melon. The Kalahari melon is indigenous to the Kalahari Desert, which stretches across Botswana, Namibia and South Africa. During dry periods, the melon becomes an important source of food and, more critically, water.


Unlike any other natural personal care oils, the oil from the seeds of the Kalahari Melon is extremely high in both essential fatty acids and natural Vitamin E. It contains 70% Essential Fatty Acids, and 2,800 mg/kg natural Vitamin E – that is two and five times more than in Argan oil, respectively. Look at the chart below to see that no other oil comes even close.

This unique combination means that Kalahari Melon Seed oil:

  • Absorbs into the skin very quickly

  • Doesn’t leave a greasy residue

  • Combats wrinkles

  • Nurtures the skin and helps to promote elasticity

  • Does not clog pores or hair follicles and can extend color protection.

  • Great for use on hair and scalp

  • Moisturizes and smooths dry, irritated skin.

  • Is particularly suited to sensitive skin, because of the high Linoleic acid content (our oil also does not contain fragrances or added preservatives).

  • Promotes the rejuvenation and repair of skin cells.

  • The Essential Fatty Acids help to repair the integrity of the skin barrier, meaning the skin retains more moisture and keeps out pollution.

  • Excellent for sensitive, normal, oily, and dehydrated skin, and all skin concerns.


How to use: Kalahari Melon Seed oil is best used as is - 100% pure nourishment for your skin (see graph above). Massage a few drops onto your face, body, cuticles, hair or scalp before going to bed or first thing in the morning… The results will amaze you!


It is also an excellent base ingredient for a wide variety of cosmetic formulations. Brands have used Kalahari Melon Seed oil to make luxury lotions, shampoos, conditioners, face creams, hair and beard oils, make up, lip balms, and much much more.
