Introducing Pumpkin Seed Carrier Oil
If you've never used Pumpkin Seed Oil before, you might not know about the astounding properties of this natural product - rich in vitamins and minerals, this is an oil with countless benefits for your hair and skin.
Pumpkin seeds are rich in antioxidants, which can reduce inflammation and protect cells. This oil, which is cold-pressed from the seeds, retains these wonderful properties as well as having a high content of healthy fatty acids.
This is a great carrier oil to use in skincare products, as it is packed with zinc, along with vitamin E, omega 3 and 6. These retain moisture and bring an amazing, youthful glow to the skin. Some of the minerals in the oil have even been shown to have anti-aging properties. The high levels of zinc can also improve and even out skin tone, as well as helping skin heal. This can reduce blemishes and acne, as well as helping to improve the appearance of scarring. This is why Pumpkin Seed Oil is frequently used in the beauty industry, as an ingredient in face creams and masks. You could use it to make our Dreamy Lavender and Orange Lotion.
The benefits don't end there. This oil is also great for maintaining luscious locks. It's found to contain enzymes which help protect hair follicles and repair dry, damaged hair, making it appear more shiny and healthy. It can be used on the hair as a conditioning treatment and makes a great ingredient for natural shampoos.
We're really excited to bring this oil to you - we think it makes a fantastic ingredient for creating your own cosmetics. It has a range of uses in all manner of hair and skincare products. We'd love to see what you make with it, so share your creations with us on Facebook and Twitter.
