Kalahari Melon Oil
CAS: 90244-99-8

The Kalahari Melon (citrullus lanatus), also known as the Tsamma melon or wild watermelon is  the biological ancestor of the common watermelon now found worldwide.  The fruit is bitter rather than sweet with a banded yellow rind and is very well adapted to surviving the harsh Kalahari desert environment where it is found.  It has high antioxidant activity which may help with its survival.

Extracted from the seeds of the Kalahari Melon,  Kalahari Melon Oil is rich in palmitic and oleic acids and is very high in linoleic acid, the fatty acid known for its skincare benefits, as well as omega-6 fatty acids.  Kalahari Melon Oil is considered to be non-comedogenic.  Kalahari Melon Oil is non-GMO.

So that our staff may enjoy the Labor Day Holiday, Lotioncrafter's offices will be closed on Monday, September 3rd. We will reopen on Tuesday, September 4th. During this time, we will not be returning phone calls or email messages. Shipping will resume on Tuesday, September 4th. Orders, emails and phone calls will be handled in the order received, as best we are able. Please expect some delays as we work through the holiday backlog! We also cannot guarantee changes to orders will be seen before orders have shipped, those that we do catch, will be held back to adjust, which will mean a shipping delay. We appreciate your understanding. Have a safe and happy Labor Day!

Confident that I can always come to Lotioncrafter for quality, affordable cosmetic ingredients. No need to do price comparisons since I know that LC will always beat out the competitors.
Sandra Morton, (Wellness 201)

LotionCrafter is hands-down the best DIY cosmetic ingredient supplier in the market! They were the first merchant I tried when I ventured into DIY formulating, and they still remain my favorite today! Absolutely no one can beat their superior inventory of products - difficult to find functionals, antioxidants, rare actives, emollients/humectants for every skin type, copycat formula recipes of prestige cosmetics, etc - and their prices are so affordable! I love that they offer smaller sizes to allow trial. I also find the "how-to" information/details they provide on each product to be extremely thorough and helpful (such a valuable thing for newbies like me). And the staff is always polite to respond via email with specific formulating/questions. Love love love!
Victor S

Wonderful shipping and effective affordable products thank you.
