Watermelon Seed Oil, wherefore art thou?

Ever have the experience of discovering something you never knew existed- which you then were dying to possess- only to find you couldn’t find it anywhere?

This is me – and this is Watermelon Seed Oil.

Aromaweb.com turned me on to Watermelon Seed Oil, which is described there as ” …a very nourishing yet light oil with good absorption. It is a good choice for use with oily skin but can be effective with all skin types.”  Its aroma is “slightly nutty”.

I’m crazy for watermelon and always on the lookout for new oils to try, so I began researching….

Commonly known as “Ootanga Oil” and “Kalahari Oil”, Watermelon seed oil is rich in essential fatty acids, making it highly moisturizing, while being completely non-greasy. It is said to actually help balance oil production.

It also makes hair shiny and strong!

And I just can’t seem to locate a source. If you know one, please let me know!
