Nothing says fall like the smells of pumpkin and spice. This pumpkin spice latte cold process soap uses natural pumpkin puree along with ginger, nutmeg, and other spices to capture this classic scent of fall and nourish your skin.
Using natural ingredients in soaps can be a wonderful way to obtain extra benefits. For instance, pumpkin is full of antioxidants and alpha hydroxy acids helping to gently exfoliate the skin, promote cell growth, and protect against free radicals. Nutmeg has long been used for its astringent properties and ability to help reduce acne and clogged pours. Ginger is full of antioxidants, can help reduce signs of scars, can promote hair growth, and stimulates circulation. While cinnamon can be an irritant, in smaller quantities it can help treat eczema and reduces signs of wrinkles by promoting blood flow and plumping the skin.
