Why This Soap Works

Pure pumpkin pulp and pumpkin seed oil, both naturally rich with fruit enzymes and Vitamins A, C and E, paired with essential fatty acids, and zinc, help remove layers of dead skin to reveal a brighter, smoother, clearer complexion. The powerhouse mix is topped off with wild carrot seed oil and a proprietary potent anti-aging essential oil blend that deeply nourishes, clears the complexion, fight breakouts and makes skin more radiant.

Using clean hands, wet soap and apply soap to fingers. Gently massage the face to cleanse. Rinse. You can also use this complexion soap with a konjac sponge, a cleansing brush or a towelette. Follow with toner and moisturizer.

Pro Tip: If you have very dry skin, we recommend only cleansing with soap in the evening. In the morning, use one of our toners with a cotton pad or konjac sponge instead.
Pumpkin Pulp // High in beta-carotene, vitamin A, C, free radical fighting antioxidants, exfoliating enzymes, copper and zinc, this fruit is a skincare powerhouse! It does it all, really. Exfoliates, prevents premature aging, nourishes the skin for optimal skin barrier function, promotes collagen production and can even help fade skin discoloration.

Pumpkin Seed Oil // Pumpkin seed oil is cold pressed from pumpkin seeds. It is one of the most nutritional oils available and is a rich source of the cell-communicating ingredient linoleic acid and antioxidant vitamin E. It also contains essential fatty acids (Omega-3, Omega-6), antioxidants, vitamin A, vitamin C, zinc, and other trace minerals! This oil provides deep penetrating, nutrient-dense moisture to keep skin healthy and glowing.

Wild Carrot Seed Oil // Unlike what many sources will lead you to believe, carrot seed oil does not come from the orange root we eat! It actually comes from the seed of the plant commonly known as "Queen Ann's Lace", which is actually a type of wild carrot. This oil is prized for its healing abilities and rejuvenating effects.

Squeaky skin

This soap bar works up a nice, creamy lather and smells fresh, but it dried onto my face relatively quickly while I was still cleansing, and then wrinsing it off is a challenge because my skin suddenly had the friction level of rubber; it felt like my hands squeaked across my face until I was completely wrinsed and dried. Afterwards my skin felt fine and I followed it with a toner and treatment oil.

Reply from Apoterra Skincare

HI Bethany! Did you wet your face before lathering up the soap to cleanse your skin? Bar soaps work best when skin is wet before massaging in the soap lather.

I love this soap

I have very oily skin that is prone to breakouts so I followed the advice of the Apottera experts and only use toner in the morning and the Pumpkin + Wild Carrot Complexion Soap at night and I have seen huge improvements in my skin. The soap feels so creamy as i lather it on my skin and yet truly clarifies any impurities of the day.

I'm a fan

I had originally wanted the rose soap but it was out of stock so I went with the pumpkin. I was in for pleasant surprise. The scent was very fresh perhaps even a bit sweet. It foams up very well and provides a gentle cleanse. I didn't experience that post-cleanse tightness that some other facial soaps provide either. I will warn other customers not to make the oopsie I did by leaving where the shower stream hits it. Wore the poor soap down to nothing in just a few days. All in all, I would definitely buy again.

Not like soap at all!

This soap is magic. It is light, smooth, moisturizing and lasts for a LONG time. My skin never feels dry or irritated and always feels incredibly clean. It also suds up nicely without harmful chemicals and that is always quite satisfying.
