Nêô Sephiri was founded in 2020 by a team who have been producing and researching Kalahari Melon Oil for nearly 10 years.
Our community in the Kalahari is being acutely impacted by climate change, with frequent, harsh droughts becoming the new norm. In our search for ways to adapt to this changing climate, we discovered Kalahari Melon oil.
While other crops struggled to adapt to the changing climate, this special plant - indigenous to our region - was able to withstand the changes to survive in these extreme, arid conditions. Through scientific investigation we discovered that the seeds of the melon, when pressed and filtered, produce a highly nutritious facial oil packed with essential fatty acids and vitamins.
On a single farm in the Kalahari Basin the seeds from the melon are cold pressed and filtered through cotton to produce a 100% natural oil that nurtures the skin.
By harnessing the drought resistant biology of the Kalahari Melon, Nêô Sephiri is securing livelihoods for communities in South Africa that have been severely impacted by climate change.
