Pumpkin is a nutrition-packed powerhouse for the skin; rich
in the antioxidants Beta Carotene, Vitamins A, C & E, as well as such other
cancer-fighting carotenoids as Lutein and Zeaxanthin. Pumpkin also boasts B Vitamins, Niacin, Riboflavin,
Ascorbic Acid, Potassium and Enzymes, while pumpkin seeds are especially laden
with Zinc, a natural sunscreen and antioxidant.
Furthermore, the oil obtained by cold-pressing the seeds contains
emollient Omega Essential Fatty Acids (EFAs), Proteins and Polyunsaturated Fats
which protect, moisturize, soothe and help the skin’s own ability to regulate
and balance sebum production.
But what does this all mean? In body products, Pumpkin
is wonderfully useful for exfoliating, nourishing and naturally smoothing the skin. Its Alpha-Hydroxy Acid (AHA) content along
with active digestive enzymes and antioxidants makes pumpkin particularly good at protecting from damaging free radicals, and bringing out a smoother, softer complexion after
just one use!
