Pumpkin Seed Oil Recipes

Many of us enjoy this nutritious snack, but did you know that Pumpkin Seed Oil also has many skin care benefits?

Packed with vitamins, minerals, antioxidants and of course, essential fatty acids, Pumpkin Seed Oil can help nourish your skin by hydrating, protecting and regenerating it. This makes it a wonderful oil for anti-aging formulas.

Skin and Hair Care Benefits

  • Protects against free radical damage: Rich in the potent antioxidant vitamin C and E, which fights damage cause by free radicals. #
  • Promotes Firmer Skin: Ingredients naturally found in pumpkin seeds such as vitamin C and Zinc help maintain healthy collagen and elastin.
  • Clearer Skin: contains zinc, vitamin C and selenium which can help reduce breakouts and make skin look healthier.
  • Deep Moisturizing: Feeds your skin nutrients such as essential fatty acids which will help moisturize and balance your skin.
  • Healthy Hair: May help with hair loss as a study indicated in the Evidence-Based Complementary and Alternative Medicine Journal in 2014. Average hair counts in the men who received pumpkin seed oil showed increases of 40%. Either way, the nutrients found in pumpkin seed oil make a great treatment for adding shine and moisture to the hair.
  • Anti-Inflammatory: Natural anti-inflammatorys in pumpkin seed soothe inflammation, helping to fade redness and calms other sensitive skin irritations such as rashes or eczema.
