Kalahari Oil

Our Wild Watermelon Seed is harvested in southern Botswana, in South Africa. Our supplier has a purpose that is alignment with our business brand and ethics. Their purpose is to have a positive impact on humans by being responsible and committed to sustainability. The Kalahari seeds are harvested and around 96% of the biomass is returned to the soil so there is minimal wastage. Through this practice, there is social sustainability, ecological sustainability and economical sustainability.

The Kalahari Melon is indigenous to that region and the community has been devastated by drought for the past 80 years. We feel that we have a responsibility to support communities around the world that have suffered economic loss and climate change impact. We cannot only support our own backyard, but we also live on this planet together and who knows what will happen in the future, maybe we will need support from other countries.

The seed reigns supreme with its nutrient-dense profile and drought-resistant biology. In comparison, Kalahari oil has 70% Essential Fatty Acids Profile and 2,800mg/k of Natural Vitamin E. This equates to 2x the EFAs' than Argan Oil and 5x the Vitamin E than Argan Oil. Argan oil is amazing in itself; however, not a sustainable product because it takes 15+ years to grow, and harvesting is harsher. Kalahari is grown yearly, and a huge amount of biomass is returned to the Earth.

Kalahari Oil has been used since Ancient Egyptian times to maintain healthy skin. It has a very light texture and is a good emollient for cosmetic products.

We use Kalahari Oil in Beard Oil, Perfume with Purpose and some of the skincare. It is easy to see why we love Kalahari Oil.

Here at Malano, we love essential oils as much as you do. They have a rich history dating all the way back to the early Egyptians and for that reason, we use them extensively in many products. However, one thing that you may not know, essential oils are considered a medicine and listed as a chemical by the Therapeutic Goods Administration. So, there are some important pointers that that we thought we’d share with you on their use and safety. 1. Always dilute your essential oils in a high-quality carrier oil, such as; Jojoba, Sweet Almond or Fractionated Coconut Oil. Never use essential oils neat. A rough guide is about 40 drops per 100ml of carrier oil, which is around 2%. 2. Always check the labels and understand the dilution rates, for example you should only use 2-10%. Be aware that Bergamot contains Bergaptene which makes the skin photo-sensitive. 3. Check whether the oil you are using is safe for pets and babies. 4. Cats and dogs are able to be around some oils, sometimes that can vary, not all oils are safe for all animal species. 5. Make sure if you are pregnant that you check for cautions, most essential oils are not suitable for pregnancy and infants. 6. Always learn from reputable books and sites about essential oil safety. 7. We don’t recommend many essential oils for infants under 2. 8. Perhaps one of the most important tips, never ingest essential oils unless you have food grade ones and you are experienced or trained in their use. The best advice is to seek a consult with a naturopath or aromatherapist and they can safely guide you through proper dosages and use. 9. Do not use if you have epilepsy and hypertension.If you would like to know more leave a comment and if you’d like to see a video with more detail, drop us a line. We love to hear from you. ...
