We love pumpkin pie, spiced pumpkin lattés, roasted pumpkin seeds, well, pumpkin EVERYthing! But why would you use pumpkin in face and body products? We're glad you asked!
Pumpkin is one of the super-fruits of skin care. From the oils and extracts made from the seeds to the fruit itself, pumpkin is chock full of good stuff for your skin. Like Vitamin A, which helps soothe and soften your skin. Vitamin C, an antioxidant that can help remedy damage produced by free radicals. Exfoliating with pumpkin fruit products that contain these natural fruit acids aid in the removal of dull surface skin cells and promotes new cell production.
The high enzyme content of the fruit and seed oils work to brighten and smooth your skin. Beneficial essential fatty acids and and natural Vitamin E help maintain good barrier function of the skin. They also regulate sebum, great for an oily complexion. Not to mention it smells ! What's not to love?
Time to try some pumpkin goodness? http://www.bidwellbotanicals.com 'Nuff said. :-)
