What Pumpkin Enzymes Can Do For You
Fruit and vegetable enzymes are proteins with the ability to target and break down dead skin cells. When used in skin care products, the enzymes speed up chemical reactions on the skin's surface, increasing cell turnover to reveal healthy, glowing skin. The enzymes take the place of manual exfoliation with an added bonus: they're antioxidants! Pumpkin enzymes naturally contain vitamin A, making them the most effective enzyme for refining the skin's surface. This miracle enzyme helps to treat fine lines and wrinkles as well as to combat oily acne breakouts.
