Kalahari melon seed oil is a great choice for a natural facial cleanse. The oil is super-rich in linolenic acid; which makes up between 50% and 70% of its entire content. Used on the face, it gets to work unclogging pores and removing excess sebum from the surface of your skin.
It makes skin look firmer and the appearance of wrinkles are often reduced. Packed full of antioxidants, and Vitamins A, C and E, it has a hydrating and tightening effect when applied.
It reduces inflammation caused by conditions like acne, as the combination of skin-friendly vitamins have a soothing effect. Kalahari melon seed oil is surprisingly light and easily absorbed by the skin – much unlike other popular oils.
The oil can be effective at helping to repair skin damage and scars. Omega-6 and Omega-9 fatty acids aren’t created naturally within the body – so they must be added for their benefit to be realised. And yes, you guess it, Kalahari melon seed oil is really rich in both. These stimulate skin cell growth, prompting regeneration and giving skin a much plumper, fresher appearance.
