This gorgeous light, nourishing oil is for all skin types but particularly oily. Naturally removes sebum and make-up, too.

With a multitude of uses, Kalahari Melon Oil {locally referred to as tsamma or oontanga} is a must have in every beauty cabinet. Basking under the intense sun of the Kalahari Desert, seeds of water-laden, indigenous watermelons, tsamma melons, intensify in their hydroxyl radical-scavenging anti-oxidant powers. The results is a powerful oil, non-greasy and non-clogging, that penetrates skin's surface to eradicate toxins and debris while offering gentle, yet effective hydration.

The only source of income for many, these amazing little seeds are grown and harvested by women indigenous to the harsh, barren desert. Women living in straw huts dance with praises each time their seeds are collected, and they receive their only income. The seeds are then driven miles away where they are cold pressed at an oil mill in another part of Namibia before being air shipped to Shea Terra Organics.

how to use

Your skin changes daily. Pollutants that it comes across, sun exposure level, your vitamin and mineral intake, the quality and amount of your water, and so on all affect and change your skin. Likewise, the skin oils that you use should change from time to time. What works for you one week might not work for you the next week. Plus, your skin benefits from the different nutrients that comes with changing up your oils. If one week your face feels a little oily, use a lighter oil and vice versa.
Daily usage: Massage few drops into each of the five facial points. Lightly massage under eye.
Make-up removal: Rub oil into make-up and use organic facial tissue to remove.

Contains only: 100% pure ootanga oil
