The pumpkin and kaolin clay are rich in over 100 Nutritional Benefits:
- beta carotene

Pumpkin has natural enzymatic exfoliating properties reducing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. It is full of Vitamins A and C which helps improve the skin's elasticity by increasing collagen production. It's Zinc content helps heal the skin and calm acne outbreaks.
Honey and pumpkin increase circulation creating a more radiant complexion. Being a natural humectant honey helps your skin maintain its natural moisture factor.
Kaolin is amazing for also attracting moisture while pulling toxins and impurities from the skin. It has a neutral pH and does not leave the skin dry compared to other clay masks. It is great for people with dry, sensitive and mature skin. It is sometimes referred to as Porcelain Clay since it is the main ingredient in porcelain. So pretty much any skin type will benefit from this lovely ingredient.
Turmeric Essential Oil has strong antibacterial properties that help acne prone skin. Its's potent anti-oxidant effects help slow and minimize the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. Turmeric leaves your skin with a healthy glow.
