Often referred to as "black oil" or "green gold," Pumpkin Seed "Virgin" oil is extracted from the seeds of the Styrian pumpkin, native to Austria, but also available in the US. Although, it is much more popular in Europe where it is valued for its skin healing properties. Pumpkin seed oil provides the skin with Vitamin E, antioxidants and essential fatty acids along with carotenoids which are required for healthy skin. Aromatherapists are also beginning to value this oil for its high protein, zinc, and polyunsaturated fats. Pumpkin Seed Carrier Oil is becoming a popular specialty oil in both massage and aromatherapy. Users can expect a shelf life of 2 years with proper storage conditions (cool, out of direct sunlight).
