June Jacobs Perfect Pumpkin Peeling Enzyme Masque

This masque offers the exfoliant enzymatic action of pumpkin along with other pumpkin extracts to rebalance the skin’s hydrolipidic barrier. This is essential because as incredible as pumpkin enzymes are, they can be a little too much for delicate or sensitive prone skin. Remember, if you irritate or inflame your skin, you are causing free radical damage . . . stronger, longer, and more aggressive is not always better.

Vitamin C, pomegranate, and extracts of white and green tea are incorporated into the formula to ensure great antioxidant properties needed for healthy skin. Antioxidants need to be continually "restocked" for the skin to defend itself from the never ending onslaught of free radicals. Whether the pumpkin enzyme is left on the skin too long, or the free radicals are triggered by other actions, an immediate source of antioxidants is very beneficial. The quicker free radicals are neutralized, the less damage they cause. Other beneficial ingredients found are Zinc for its great healing properties, and Vitamin C for collageneisis (production of collagen). Although the absorption may be debatable, all sources are helpful. The Vitamin A in this product is not Retinol, but an ester of it. It will not have the potent effects of retinol, which can be irritating to some, but it will offer incredible emolliency to the skin. All in all, this masque a nice way to reawaken your skin.
