Watermelon Extract, produced from the fruits of Citrullus lanatus, is the newest beauty care superfood and is currently being widely incorporated into cosmetics because of its emollient and moisturizing action, but also for its antioxidant and anti-aging properties. This juicy super fruit is rich in potassium, Vitamins A, C, and B, amino acids, and Lycopene: a powerful antioxidant that helps minimize the appearance of wrinkles, fine lines, and age spots. Lycopene is responsible for the deep red color of theWatermelon fruit, and it is one of the most potent antioxidants in skin care. Antioxidants are substances that neutralize the free radicals that are found in the environment. It also can help reduce skin inflammation, improve skin pigmentation, and promote healthy collagen production.

Watermelon Fruit Extract increases the natural defense system of the skin due to the synergistic acting effect of the vitamins, carbohydrates and Citrulline. The Watermelon Extract has been found to improve the appearance of aged and stressed skin. Watermelon Extract gives the look of a younger, regenerated skin and has been shown to reduce appearance of skin redness after UV irradiation. The extract is also rich in Vitamin C and naturally occurring carbohydrates and amino acids helping to protect the skin from everyday environmental elements and promoting a rejuvenated look of the skin.


Watermelon plants have their own defence system by producing solutes that protect the cells against drought, heat & UV-rays by a DNA-protecting mechanism. These are water soluble molecules, for example amino acids, which penetrate easily into the skin. Amino acids are often used in a variety of cosmetic applications not only for their conditioning benefits, but also to keep our skin and hair hydrated. In addition to being the fundamental building blocks of all proteins, amino acids also contribute to our body's Natural Moisturizing Factor (NMF) to maintain proper hydration levels.

Watermelon Extract's synergistic composition is also very strong in protecting the DNA of the skin's fibroblasts and keratinocytes. Watermelon Fruit Extract helps prevent DNA damage in skin cells in two ways: by preventing direct damage from UV light and by inhibiting the release of free radicals induced by UV light.
