Pumpkin Seed Oil
We feature Pumpkin Seed Oil inside our Vitamin ACE Moisturiser
Most often the deep orange, smooth and ribbed skin of pumpkins are carved as lanterns for Halloween. But did you know there is more to the Pumpkin than your favourite Starbucks ‘Pumpkin Spiced Latte’? Not only are they an edible and nutritious fruit used in recipes all year round, the seeds of the pumpkin are extracted to produce pumpkin seed oil. Highly enriched with vitamins and minerals, which can help radically improve the skin, by soothing, hydrating, protecting, and renewing, making it an anti-ageing skin wonder.
Pumpkin seed oil contains high levels of Vitamin C, which supports the production of the skin's natural collagen and retain firmness and elasticity.
Treat Acne and Increase Skin Firmness
Some studies have claimed a progressive decline in pimples and blackheads with the use of pumpkin seed oil over a period of one to three months. Dermatologists often recommend this oil to patients with acne prone or sensitive skin, due to its unsaturated fatty acids, which provide soothing anti-inflammatory properties, reduce redness and encourage wound healing. Highly antioxidant, Vitamin E in pumpkin seed oil, protects the skin from environmental aggressors. Essential fatty acids work deep to penetrate into the skin’s surface and balance moisture, for a more youthful and vibrant appearance. Zinc and selenium also present, offer further protection and promote the renewal of skin cells, fighting against wrinkles and signs of ageing. Pumpkin Seed Oil also contains a plethora of natural vitamins, making it a “superpower” oil with vitamin A, vitamin B2 & B3, omegas 3, 6, 9, potassium and magnesium. All much needed vitamins and minerals for healthier, firmer and softer skin.
