I have wanted to make a pumpkin soap for some time now. However, I didn’t know exactly how to go about putting my own twist on this well represented idea. I felt like an unscented pumpkin soap really needed something extra while still keeping it simple. So, I decided to go the literal route and include as many pumpkin products in this soap as possible. This soap recipe includes organic pumpkin puree, pumpkin seed oil, and pumpkin butter. What has resulted is very unexpected. This soap leaves your skin so soft. It is unlike any soap I have made. It’s silky smooth lather is Totally Pumpkin.
Pumpkin seed oil is wonderful for your skin. it has essential fatty acids (both omega 3 and omega 6), it’s packed with vitamins (A, E, C, K) and minerals (manganese, calcium, magnesium, and phosphorous). This makes it a perfect choice for mature skin types, though I feel anyone would benefit.
