Closer Look: Pure Pumpkin Soap

Did you know that your skin absorbs 99% of what you put on it?  Basically everything that comes into contact with your skin is absorbed into your body, which is why people are developing so many sensitivities to chemicals and preservatives.

That is one of the reasons why I came up with these new summer seasonal soaps that are filled with organic food ingredients and nutrient oils.  I wanted a better soap for my (maturing, ahem) drier skin, and I knew my customers would too.

Last week I discussed the deets of the Carrot Ginger soap, and this week I'm going to blab in more detail about the Pure Pumpkin soap.  It's so darn yummy smelling that I can't live without it.  But it's silky smooth feel on my skin is so beautiful too - I'm convinced that this one is a keeper and will be around for a lot longer than just the summer.  You know how those summer flings sometimes turn into real romance?  Yep.

The Pure Pumpkin soap bar is a triple pumpkin recipe with fresh organic pumpkin puree, pumpkin powder, and pumpkin seed oil.  Pumpkin is a miracle worker for skin - full of essential fatty acids, vitamins, minerals and exfoliating enzymes.  It is decadent is its lush, silky feel and the fragrance is spicy, bright, fresh, and happy with citrus, clove, cinnamon and rosemary.  Now that it's been out in the world a little bit, everyone who picks it up says "yep, it smells exactly like pumpkin pie."  Myself, I think it smells even better than that - not so sugary, but definitely pumpkin-y.

Pumpkin puree (organic) makes this bar feel so silky and luscious, although it's a rich source of gently exfoliating enzymes, antioxidants, beta carotene and many other vitamins and minerals beneficial to mature, dry, or really any kind of skin type.  Everyone can and will appreciate it.

Pumpkin seed oil provides even more moisturizing due to its high levels of Omega 3, 6 and 9 fatty acids.  It is also packed with Vitamins A, E, C and K, plus minerals of manganese, magnesium, calcium and phosphorous. 

Pumpkin powder contains Vitamins A, B1, B2 and K. It is high in natural alpha hydroxy acid (AHA) which is thought to help brighten and refresh the skin.  It also protects skin with it's high levels of phytochemicals that are thought to help fight cancer and filter UV rays.

Ingredients: Saponified oils of olive, coconut, palm, organic shea butter, organic pumpkin puree, pumpkin powder, pumpkin seed oil, essential oils. (This is a 100% natural soap! )
