Apricot immediately stood out to me because it has the same beta-carotene benefits as pumpkin. It also contains a natural acid that helps dissolve the dirt and oil that gets trapped in pores. I took the apricot kernel and transformed them into small spheres to use as the exfoliating agent in the cleanser. The apricot kernels are much gentler than average salt crystals yet the apricot kernels work very well to scrub away dead skin and debris.
The apricot combined with the pumpkin seed oil and pumpkin extracts help make for a powerful, healthy alternative to the cleansers and exfoliates formulated with harsh chemicals.
My Pumpkin Spice Exfoliating Facial Cleanser is just one example of how nature can provide you with all of the necessary ingredients to help create a healthy product that works – a passion I strive to share to this day.
