For over 4,000 years, the indigenous San people in southern Africa have revered the Kalahari Melon as a vital source of sustenance and hydration and both consumed the fruit as well as used its beneficial oil for its moisturizing and protective capabilities.
The San would turn the seed of the plant into a paste to cover and protect their skin from the harsh desert environment and to promote a healthy complexion. This sustainable, drought-resistant fruit, native to southern Africa, thrives in the harsh conditions of the Kalahari Desert, where it has evolved to conserve water and withstand extreme temperatures.
Benefits of Kalahari Melon Oil (Mokaté Oil) in Skincare
Rich in highly beneficial essential fatty acids (up to 70% as Linoleic acid), natural Vitamin E, and plant sterols, this stable oil provides deep moisturization and nourishment, helps to repair skin cells, combat wrinkles, and features a powerful antioxidant complex to aid in protecting skin from free-radical damage and reducing the signs of premature aging. Kalahari Melon Oil was also shown in clinical studies to give an instant wrinkle-reducing effect and to significantly improve microcirculation and oxygen delivery while reducing water loss. This light, non-greasy oil is easily and quickly absorbed by the skin and is excellent for all skin types due to its non-comedogenic nature. Its naturally oxidative stability makes this ingredient incredibly stable and particularly well-suited to use in skincare formulations.
