Wild watermelon juice contributes to the growth of skin cells

Growth of human epidermal keratinocytes was enhanced by the addition of wild watermelon juice, suggesting the possibility that wild watermelon juice activates human epidermal keratinocytes and stimulates their metabolism.
Whats are epidermal keratinocytes?

Epidermal keratinocytes are the cells that constitute the epidermis. Stimulating the growth of epidermal keratinocytes enhances removal of old corneal layers and contributes to epidermal turnover. This enhanced turnover also leads to a higher cycling of melanin pigments, thereby preventing skin spot emergence. In other words, enhancing epidermal regeneration has beneficial cosmetic effects and also prevents premature skin aging.
