Pumpkin Seed Oil, also called Pepita Oil, is cold-pressed from the emerald green seeds of Cucurbita pepo. The cold-pressed method of extraction is preferable because it allows the oil to retain its beneficial antioxidants that would be lost or damaged due to heat exposure.
Pumpkin Seed Oil is rich in antioxidants, polyunsaturated fatty acids (including Linoleic and Linolenic acid), and Vitamins C and E - trust it for rejuvenating mature skin, scar care, and for creating a more even skin tone. There are two main types of pumpkins from which the oil is obtained, both of the Cucurbita plant genus: one is Cucurbita pepo, and the other is Cucurbita maxima.
