What is Pumpkin powder?
Pumpkin Powder is dehydrated pumpkin that has been ground into a powder. The fine, orange powder, smells exactly like a raw pumpkin. It is rich in vitamin A, Vitamin C, and Zinc and has antioxidant qualities and is a skin soother. Pumpkin gently removes dead skin cells and leaves skin smooth and glowing. And though our Pumpkin powder is cosmetic grade and incredibly pure, we still strongly advise against eating it.
What Can Pumpkin Powder Be Added to?
Pumpkin can easily be added to many of our Personal Care Bases. Here is a list of products that pumpkin powder mixes well into. In general, you can add from 1-5% Powder to one of our Bases to achieve the desired results and consistency. More can be added, but you should test in a small batch before committing to a larger quantity. Keep up with the blog for more detailed recipes and more!

Pumpkin Powder will make your products smell like pumpkin and it will tint them orange. Although it does not stain your skin, do keep in mind that the color of your lotion, scrub or other base may change. To mix our Pumpkin Powder into product evenly, first dissolve the powder into a liquid carrier. You can use alcohol, oil, or glycerin. Finally as a last tip, the powder will intensify pumpkin fragrances. If you plan on using Pumpkin Fragrances, start off with 0.5% and work your way up until you reach the desired strength.
