An Introduction to the Benefits of Pumpkin Enzyme & Willow Bark Extract

Have you ever come across pumpkin enzyme and willow bark extract before when it comes to skin care? Well, it’s about time you have! Our 3 in 1 Pumpkin Enzyme Facial Polish features the benefits of these two ingredients, that when combined with other organic extracts, leave your skin with a youthful glow and reduced of inflammation. We have recently tweaked the formula of our Pumpkin Polish so it is filled with even more nutrients and good stuff for you skin to thrive. So exactly what benefits do our beautiful ingredients in the Facial Polish provide for your skin?

Pumpkin Enzymes as a Natural AHA

Pumpkin contain a lot of amazing properties that benefit the skin in numerous ways, and it’s packed with fruit enzymes and all natural alpha hydroxyl acids (AHAs), which increase cell turnover to brighten and smooth the skin. AHAs (both chemical and natural) also act as an exfoliant to help loosen and get rid of dead skin cells on the skin’s surface, but having the ingredient as a natural version means you’re getting a powerful antioxidant that combats oxidative, free radical damage.

Regular exfoliation with pumpkin enzymes helps keep your complexion naturally bright by preventing a build-up of those dead skin cells. As a natural AHA, they also assist in removing discolouration that leaves your skin tone dark, and removing the surface debris that inhibits your skin’s ability to absorb the active ingredients in your skincare creams and serums.

This means pumpkin enzymes are a natural repair therapy that address the free-radical component to diseases and aging with the use of all natural anti-oxidants.

Willow Bark Extract as a Natural BHA

Used for its anti-inflammatory, soothing and conditioning properties, Willow Bark Extract has been used for centuries as a treatment for numerous ailments. It contains salicylic acid, a Beta Hydroxy Acid (BHA) that is a natural exfoliant and is used in acne treatments due to its ability to help skin shed dead cells and clear pores.

A little miracle, it also stimulates new cell formation and softens and loosens dry, scaly, or thickened skin so that it falls off or can be removed easily via mask treatments.

Beautiful Combinations

When blended together pumpkin enzymes and willow bark extract, along with other gentle ingredients for a skin care product, make for a gentle pigmentation and acne prone skin treatment. Together with rice powder, chamomile, aloe vera, numerous berry extracts and acerola – the blend can be used in so many ways. Try using it daily to smooth the skin, or as a peel to minimise the appearance the fine lines and improve skin colour with little or no irritation, and as a mask to provide a deeper cleanse, restore skin hydration, all to give you a youthful glow.
