Pumpkins here, pumpkins there, everywhere pumpkins this time of year … on your porch, for dessert, in your coffee, and even for your skin! Yes, your skin!
Here are three reasons pumpkin puree is a wonderful additive to your soap:
1. Pumpkins contain antioxidants and Vitamins A, C, and E which can help refresh your skin and keep it looking youthful.
2. Pumpkin seed oil is rich in essential omega 3 and 6 fatty acids and zinc. It is easily absorbed into the skin and can help repair dry, damaged skin. And we all need that as we head into the drier winter months!
3. Pumpkin is also packed full of alpha hydroxy acids. So is goat milk! So when you add the two together, you get a double dose! Alpha hydroxy acids are natural and effective exfoliators to help life and remove old skin cells from the skin’s surface.
