Fall Harvest Ingredients for Beautiful Skin and Hair
Local Farmer’s Markets and produce bins are bursting with fall fruits and vegetables. Pumpkins, cranberries, pomegranates, and pears can be found almost everywhere, but did you know that ingredients derived from this fall harvest can reap big rewards for your skin and hair?
It’s truly remarkable that nature provides a bounty of important vitamins and nutrients packaged neatly in these fruits and vegetables just as the weather changes. It makes sense that with the change of seasons we crave these foods (and of course other fat and calorie-rich comfort foods). It is nature’s way of helping us prepare for winter. Hair and skin also have “cravings” for different nutrition. The fall harvest bounty that your body craves is also what your hair and skin crave. The rich oils derived from fall fruits and vegetables help hair and skin remain soft and supple as we transition to colder, drier weather.
Pumpkin Seed Oil
Pumpkin Seed Oil rivals coconut oil as the next “it” ingredient in skin and hair care. Pumpkin oil is highly nourishing and lubricating. It’s rich in Omega 3 and Omega 6 fatty acids and contains a high amount of zinc; an essential trace element not to be confused with zinc oxide. Pumpkin Oil will not only nourish and protect your skin and hair but will also help to keep both looking young and vital. We suggest combining Pumpkin Oil with 2% Vitamin E as a preservative. Pumpkin oil is highly oxidative, and Vitamin E helps to keep the oil from becoming rancid. Use this combination to apply directly to hair and skin, even on your face, as often as you like. Massage the blend into your scalp and work through hair to the ends, leave in overnight and wake up with soft and nourished scalp and hair. No more dry and itchy scalp and the bonus of soft and luxurious hair!
Pomegranate Seed Oil
High in anti-oxidant properties, Pomegranate Seed Oil, will help your skin keep its youthful appearance through any weather conditions. This highly nourishing oil will help protect and moisturize skin. It also strengthens the hair shaft, so it’s effective in both skin and hair care formulations.
Cranberry Seed Oil
Cranberry Seed Oil has oxidative stability and contains 70% essential fatty acids making it a superb emollient, lubricant and conditioner for the skin. It is excellent for use in skin, hair, lip and baby care. Cranberry seed oil contributes to moisture retention. The oil also contains high concentrations of tocopherols, tocotrienols, phytosterols, phospholipids and Vitamin A, redefining performance and stability standards for highly polyunsaturated oils.
100% Natural Pear Fragrance Oil
While Pear Fragrance Oil will not add to the nourishing and conditioning of skin or hair, it does add the aromatherapy element. This fragrance is far from the traditional and highly synthetic fragrances that may be familiar. It is a blend of essential oil fractions and essential oil isolates combined to smell exactly like a fresh cut pear. No synthetic chemicals here, just 100% natural fragrance.
