Pumpkin Seed Oil Benefits
Pumpkin Seed Oil has significant benefits for skin beauty and wellness.
Pumpkin seed oil contains very high levels of the natural antioxidants and polyunsaturated fatty acids, Omega-9, and is especially high in the gamma-tocopherol form of Vitamin E, which is a powerful antioxidant, that fights free radicals on skin.
Pumpkin seed oil helps protect skin cell structure and moisturize dry skin, thus diminishing wound scarring, wrinkles and fine lines, and reducing the appearance of wrinkles and stretch marks.
The four fatty acids which comprise 98% of Pumpkin Seed Oil are palmitic, stearic, linoleic, and oleic acids, which promote skin cell regeneration and help retain its protective barrier, which allows the skin to maintain the proper moisture balance and helps maintain healthful looking skin.
