Our Pumpkin Enzyme Face Mask is formulated with nourishing oils, gentle kaolin clay, alpha hydroxy acids and pumpkin enzymes to exfoliate and peel away the uppermost top layer of dead skin cells, naturally resurfacing the skin to reveal bright, smooth, and glowing skin.
Benefits + Key Ingredients
Formulated with five natural alpha hydroxy acids: Lactic Acid (from Bilberry), Glycolic Acid (from Sugar Cane), Citric Acid (from Orange and Lemon), and Malic and Tartaric Acids (from Sugar Maple). Alpha hydroxy acids have been shown to promote smoother, younger looking skin by increasing the rate of cell renewal. AHA’s weaken the bond that hold dead skin together, and when these bonds are weakened, the skin shreds off the outermost layer of dead skin cells.
Glycolic Acid is amazing for exfoliation, effectively removing the outermost layer of dead cells as well as used to treat scarring, skin discoloration and signs of aging, like fine lines and wrinkles. Being the smallest molecular structure among all alpha-hydroxy acids, it can penetrate into deeper layers to re-texturize the skin, shed dead skin cells and reveal the newer, brighter layers underneath.
Pumpkin contains large amount of nutrients that increase cell turnover and can smooth and brighten skin’s complexion. It is rich in vitamins A and C, beta-carotene, potassium, and zinc. It’s also loaded with antioxidants that help fight free radicals, as well as hydroxyl acids and natural enzymes that exfoliate, improve skin tone and reveal a younger-looking skin.
Use once or twice a week as part of your nighttime skin routine. Apply a thin layer to clean skin, avoiding eyes and lips. Leave on for 1-10 minutes. Rinse with cool or lukewarm water and follow with moisturizer. We recommend starting with 1-3 minutes and slowly increasing the time with each use as your skin becomes adjusted to the acids. Do not leave on longer than 10 minutes.
A light to moderate tingling and skin redness is normal as the fruit acids get to work gently removing the top layer of dull skin, especially with your first use, but if you feel a burning sensation, remove the mask immediately and apply a facial oil such as jojoba or olive oil.
Do not use on open, broken, or irritated skin. Not recommended for sensitive skin. Please do a patch test before use. It is not recommended for use with any other facial scrub or exfoliator. Please use sunscreen after using as alpha hydroxy acids can make skin more sensitive to the sun.
