When I first started researching the benefits of watermelon seed oil, watermelon butter, and other watermelon extracts, and the like, I must admit I was a skeptic to say the least! Then rice water, and rice extract, what? Boy was I shocked! These are some of the very best things you can do for yourself as far as skin and hair are concerned.
As I started on my quest to find the best of the best for our formulations, it became very clear that these are incredible ingredients for skin and hair care. The plethora of benefits was astonishing! I couldn’t wait to get started putting these incredible ingredients into new formulations. I was especially impressed with what these incredible ingredients did for Natural curly hair. I was asked by a client to create a shampoo and conditioner for natural hair, and this is what started it all.
In my research, I also discovered the benefits for the skin as well and was astonished at what this remarkable fruit can do, not only for the skin and hair but for total health!
That was nearly a year ago, and since then we have formulated a total hair and skin line utilizing Watermellon, this incredible fruit! It is so true that if it’s good for you to eat, it is probably good for your skin and hair topically as well. Our rigorous testing has produced staggering results! The following is an excerpt for the blog from May of last year and is just a recap of the benefits.
The benefits of watermelon for hair and skin include:
1) Promotes Hair Growth
Arginine (an amino acid) is essential in our bodies and helps with blood circulation in the scalp. Watermelon naturally contains a lot of citrulline that increases the level of arginine and is therefore good for promoting hair growth.
2) Prevents Hair Loss
Watermelon is packed with Vitamin C, which helps your body to use non-heme iron – this ensures that enough iron is in your red blood cells to assist in carrying oxygen to your hair follicles, promoting healthy hair. Collagen is also needed for healthy hair growth and watermelon helps promote collagen formation.
3) Moisturizes Hair
Watermelon Seed Oil is a very light oil, which helps to moisturize and works very well in watermelon shampoo.
4) Hydrates Skin
Dehydrated skin can lead to a dull and dry appearance, but watermelon has such a high water content that it helps to keep the skin hydrated and moisturized. This can help to keep your skin supple and looking great.
5) Acts as A Skin Toner
Watermelon contains a natural substance that helps to shrink body tissues. This essentially means that watermelon is a natural toner that can help to refresh the skin
6) Prevents Skin from Ageing
As we get older our skin becomes thinner and less able to recover from damage. Our body is full of ‘free radicals’ that damage cells over time and can attribute to the cause of aging skin. Watermelon is full of antioxidants such as lycopene and vitamin C and A which helps reduce these free radicals that can slow down the signs of aging. The consumption of Vitamin A can encourage growth of collagen and elastin cells that helps your skin stay young and supple.
7) Prevents Oil Production in Skin
Sebaceous glands secrete oil that can be troublesome for keeping skin clear. Watermelon is packed with Vitamin A, reducing skin pore size and the amount of oil that your sebaceous glands secrete. Watermelon is believed to help with acne due to these properties.
Then we discovered that adding rice extract to the shampoo gave it a total super-power to hair growth.
But the shampoo and conditioner are only 2 items that we were able to create from the super-fruit!
- We made a watermelon stem cell cream, which stops dryness and wrinkles in their tracks.
- A wash, with microbeads of charcoal to clarify and nourish while cleansing.
- Two scrubs; one cream, and one foaming, both with these remarkable micro-encapsulates, along with fine bamboo, to polish and brighten, lighten and exfoliate the skin.
- A beautiful watermelon toner to hydrate and soothe the skin and leave a refreshing scent of watermelon behind to lighten your spirits!
- A serum that lightens, moisturizes, tightens, and refreshes the skin – it is astonishing, and a must-have for saggy eyes, or jaws, deep wrinkles, and dehydrated skin!
- The Watermelon mask leaves the skin light and bright and moisturized.
Each item has a light scent of watermelon without perfume.
