Ingredient Spotlight: Pumpkin!


With October comes my favorite time of the year – pumpkin season! When I think pumpkins – I think about carving pumpkins, the aroma of a freshly baked pumpkin pie, or even baking the seeds as a fun snack. But never did it cross my mind, that pumpkin enzyme could do wonders for my skin!

Why pumpkin enzyme? For starters, it’s excellent for all skin types – especially for skin that has been hit with environmental damage such as overexposure to the sun. The enzyme is rich in nutrients. Vitamin A works to soothe and soften your skin, while the antioxidant-packed Vitamin C works to help remedy free-radical damage.

When you think pumpkin enzyme – think Pac Man effect! Pumpkin enzyme acts like a hungry little Pac Man to exfoliate by “eating” or removing old surface skin cells and promoting new cell production. The results of using skin care products with pumpkin enzyme are clear: refined pores, soft skin, and a radiant complexion.

For cleansing products that contain this powerful enzyme, check out our african red tea foaming cleanser and sugar glow face scrub. Throughout the entire month of October, in honor of Breast Cancer Awareness Month, OLEHENRIKSEN.com will donate 25% of the proceeds from sales of our award winning african red tea foaming cleanser to The Wellness Community to help those affected by breast cancer.

To increase the exfoliation benefits, try leaving the cleanser or scrub on your skin for approximately 5 minutes and let the pumpkin enzyme go to work. Here’s to doing a good deed for your skin and the community!
