Organic Pumpkin Seed Oil
Pumpkin Seed Oil, Cucurbita pepo, is derived from the Styrian pumpkin with dark green seeds. The seeds do not have an outer shell and are easily processed into oil. We use virgin pumpkin seed oil, cold pressed from the seeds, with a naturally a dark green color and a nutty aroma. This highly nourishing and emollient oil is rich in vegetable protein and contains many valuable nutrients and phytosterols. Pumpkin seed oil is particularly high in the gamma tocopherol form of vitamin E, a powerful antioxidant. Rich in essential fatty acids that regulate skin oil (sebum) production, it is great for both oily/acne-prone skin and dry damaged skin. It helps combat fine facial lines and dryness and may be helpful for eczema and psoriasis.
In hair care, it helps protect hair follicles and promote shine. It is an emollient that moisturizes and helps smooth frizz.
We use virgin, unrefined, organic pumpkin seed oil. Unrefined oils have not been bleached or deodorized and retain their natural scent, color and nutritional benefits.
