Bitter gourd oil is cold pressed from the seeds of a tropical vine widely grown in Asia, Africa, and the Caribbean for its edible fruit. Popularly called Bitter Melon or Bitter Squash, the Bitter Gourd fruit is considered to have therapeutic health benefits, especially for those suffering from diabetes.
Bitter Gourd Seed Oil is a highly-nutritive vegetable oil that helps bring back moisture and suppleness to even the most dry and damaged hair. It can also help boost the skin's natural collagen production and provide UV protection, both of which can prevent premature skin aging. It is also very rich in fatty acids and has been shown to treat atherosclerosis, diabetes, cure liver problems, ulcers and spleen.
Bitter Gourd Oil is a great option for hot oil massages and pre-shampoo treatments for preventing dandruff, scalp flaking, and restoring your hair and scalp's natural moisture. Bitter Gourd Seed Oil is also anti-inflammatory and anti-microbial, making it an ideal ingredient in skincare formulations to fight acne breakouts, and other skin conditions such as eczema and psoriasis. Add a few drops to your daily moisturizer.
