Pumpkin seeds are a well-known super food. Their composition enables them to be a key component of balancing and maintain a regular menstrual cycle. It is no surprise then that the oil extracted from these seeds is brimming with nutrients, vitamins, minerals, and fatty acids that all come together to make this a powerful ingredient in natural beauty care products.
What are the benefits of Pumpkin Seed Oil?
Extremely high in antioxidants and polyunsaturated fatty acids, pumpkin seed oil helps the skin to retain moisture and normal cell structure. This enables your skin to remain better hydrated and retain its youthful appearance. Vitamin E and Zinc also work together to improve skin tone, fight off free radicals, and repair signs of premature aging like fine lines and wrinkles. Being an emollient, it also traps moisture into the deeper layers of the skin to improve overall skin hydration and softness.
Vitamins C, E, and K work to soften skin and boost collagen production. This improves elasticity and resilience of your skin. The vitamin A speeds up cell turnover and rejuvenation. This makes it a great exfoliator by sloughing off dead and damaged skin cells and encouraging the production of new and more resilient skin cells. It also protects against skin cancer by fighting the damage that would cause it.
The high content of zinc, potassium, and magnesium in this oil also help reduce excess sebum production to reduce oiliness in your skin while also reducing existing acne and future breakouts. This trifecta of minerals also makes pumpkin seed oil very effective as an anti-inflammatory agent for skin and scalp health. It reduces the occurrence of dandruff and other skin inflammations and dryness.
Can Pumpkin Seed Oil regrow Hair?
Pumpkin seed oil has another astounding benefit for those suffering from male pattern baldness and hair thinning. It inhibits an enzyme which is known as 5-alpha reductase enzyme. This enzyme is linked to slowing and stopping hair growth by producing DHT from testosterone. Inhibiting this enzyme enables hair growth to resume faster and healthier. Pumpkin seed oil also protects hair follicles and increases shine. Its amino acid proteins also bring luster and strength to brittle and thinning hair.
