We love a cold slice of watermelon on a hot summer day and we love watermelon as a skincare ingredient. It's really full of good-for-the-skin stuff: it contains a bunch of vitamins (A, B, C and E), mineral salts (Potassium, Magnesium, Calcium and Iron), amino acids citrulline & arginine, and antioxidant carotenoids & phenolics.
It's especially rich in potent antioxidant, lycopene (a type of carotenoid), the cool pigment that's responsible for the red color of the watermelon. According to a manufacturer, in-vitro (made in the lab not on real people) studies show that watermelon oil gives significant DNA protection against UV damage. The in-vivo (made on real people) study also confirmed this and the watermelon formula showed 25% increase in skin protection compared to placebo.
All in all, it is a cool botanical oil with potent antioxidant magic abilities.
