Watermelon is a member of the flowering plant family known as Cucurbitaceae. It is thought to have originated in Southern Africa, although the watermelons we consume today are descended from a more bitter type that would probably be unpalatable to us now.
Watermelon fruit is extremely low in calories whilst providing many important vitamins and minerals. Watermelon seeds produce a light, golden oil that is also known as Ootonga oil or Kalahari Oil. It is high in Omega 6 fatty acid and rich in B vitamins which are essential to healthy skin. This light, non-greasy oil melts easily into the skin and is especially effective for enlarged pores and oily skin.
