Pumpkin: The Enzyme That Packs a Punch

October 16, 2014 | 0 Comments

Sure, pumpkin-flavored anything is all the rage right now. But did you know that the fruit has very real, very scientific properties that make it not only exceptional for your pie but also for your skin?

Because of its healing powers, we specially formulated our C-Firma Day Serum with fermented pumpkin — an ingredient that makes the product more effective than other Vitamin C serums currently on the market.

In short, fermented pumpkin is packed with alpha hydroxy acids and antioxidants, the combination of which will brighten, smooth and boost the collagen production of the skin.

If your skin care goal it to fight signs of aging, fermented pumpkin will be especially important to you. The molecular structure of pumpkin is small and can penetrate deeper into the skin when used topically, making it ideal for treating a dull complexion and pigmentation, the International Dermal Institute explains.

In fact, the use of fermented fruits in skin care in general is on the rise. Refinery29 recently spoke to Korean beauty experts, who explained that the process of fermentation breaks down the molecular structure of the ingredients, making the nutrients more concentrated and more easily and rapidly absorbed. Not only that, but fermented skin products are more “symbiotic with the skin,” thus a great choice for those prone to sensitivity.

So give your skin a loving dose of pumpkin enzyme, and get out there and enjoy the splendors of fall. You can thank us later. Your skin sure will.
