Jam-packed with nutrients thanks to the organic whole pumpkin pulp, pumpkin seed oil and wild carrot seed oil, this complexion soap is our go-to for dull skin. Suds up to create a lather that works as a brightening facial cleanser that will thoroughly cleanse without overdrying. The perfect start to a nourishing skin care routine for dull, aging or balanced skin.

Benefits

  • Pure pumpkin pulp helps nourish, protect and gently exfoliate thanks to antioxidants like beta-carotene, vitamin C + E, as well as naturally occurring exfoliating fruit enzymes
  • Pumpkin seed oil is rich in zinc which is known to help reduce breakouts
  • Rich in phytosterols, linoleic acid and vitamin E which nourish and rebalance the skin
  • Wild carrot seed oil supports skin health and lymph drainage
  • Long lasting and plastic-free to lower your carbon footprint

Although formulated specifically as a facial cleanser, this soap is effective head-to-toe. Some customers have reported it also works great as a shampoo bar!

Pumpkin Pulp // High in beta-carotene, Vitamin A, C, free-radical-fighting antioxidants, exfoliating enzymes, copper and zinc, this fruit does it all. It exfoliates, prevents premature aging, nourishes the skin for optimal skin barrier function, stimulates collagen production and can even help fade skin discoloration.

Pumpkin Seed Oil // A cold-pressed oil straight from pumpkin seeds, It is one of the most nutritional oils available and is a rich source of the cell-communicating essential fatty acids Omega-6 (linoleic acid), Omega-3, and antioxidant vitamin E. It also contains Vitamin A, Vitamin C, zinc, and other trace minerals to protect from environmental stressors. Pumpkin seed oil is a deep penetrating, nutrient-rich moisturizer that will keep skin healthy and glowing.

Wild Carrot Seed Oil // Fun fact: Carrot oil does not come from the actual carrot! Nor is it the traditional orange carrots that we’re used to. This version is a type of wild carrot, and the oil is extracted from the seed of the plant commonly known as "Queen Anne's Lace.” It’s prized for its healing abilities and rejuvenating effects.
Wet hands and lather up this brightening pumpkin soap until a rich, creamy lather forms. Gently massage lather into wet skin to gently remove dirt, makeup, SPF, and any other signs of the day. Rinse with warm water or use a warm towelette to remove stubborn makeup.

Pro Tip: Over cleansing is often the root cause of dry skin and those pesky monthly breakouts. This soap will not dry the skin like conventional bar soap and is a great start to a nourishing routine, especially at night to remove SPF, makeup and other signs of the day. We recommend following with one of our toning mists and a nourishing facial oil. In the mornings, your skin is clean and may not need the deep cleanse that this pumpkin soap offers, especially if you are currently experiencing dry or irritated skin. Use one of our toning mists, Night Balm or our Hibiscus Mud as your morning cleanser instead.

Creamy Pumpkin and Wild Carrot Soap

This soap is wonderful to use with the natural scent of pumpkin and carrot.

Lathers up well leaving my skin feeling really really clean, soft and supple and noticeably brighter from the natural retinoids in pumpkin and carrot. A nice pick me up treat in the am. Love it and will order this again and try their other natural soaps as well.

It's good soap

This soap cleanse well, does not leave my skin feeling dry afterward, and I think it does "gently exfoliate" a bit, as claimed in the product description. I like that it smells like plain soap, no flowery scent, no fragrance, not even the sweetness of raw pumpkin pulp. I am not sure it does anything to "brighten" my skin or not. However, unlike most cleanser I've used before, it does nothing to worsen my already very bad, (severely) acne prone skin while keeping it clean -- which is what you hope for in a good bar of soap.

Favorite

Of all the samples I ordered, this is my favorite. After using it I can feel just how clean my skin is. Additionally, it has been really helping with my complexion as well as reducing acne scars. Not only that but the lasts a while, as small as it is. It has been over two weeks and my bar has barely moved.

Great soap!

I'm really happy with the pumpkin soap sample. I have dry skin with occasional breakouts, a little dull. I added this sample onto the order for the restore ritual sample kit. While I liked the rose soap that came with it, I am glad I added a sample of the pumpkin soap because I feel it works a little better for me. Rich lather and nice results so I will definitely be ordering the full size bar!
