Please note: This is a new formulation. You are advised to run a test batch before using it in full-scale production.

Pumpkin Seed Butter is designed for topical use, and is formulated with Organic (100% Virgin) Pumpkin Seed Oil, which is very high in linoleic acid. Hydrogenated vegetable oil affords an odorless white base that is soft but rich, and melts quickly on contact with the skin. The linoleic values of the Pumpkin Seed Oil carry well in this medium. This particular butter is very rich and smooth, and is popular in products that help to reduce the appearance of fine lines.

Common Uses: Pumpkin Seed Oil, so popular in European skin-care and beauty products, aids with the re-hydration of dry or, more specifically, mature skin. It may be used in a variety of formulations including lotions, creams, after-sun products, conditioners, body butters, luxury soaps, baby-care products and lip balms.

Recommended Usage:
Lotions & Creams: 5 - 20 %
Balms: 5 – 100 %
Bar Soaps: 5 - 20 %
Hair Conditioners: 2 – 5 %

When adding a butter to creams and lotions, it might be necessary to gently warm it until melted or very soft in texture, and can be incorporated into the final product. Using a hand blender, create a vortex with your cream or lotion and drizzle in your melted butter until fully incorporated and consistently smooth. For addition in soaps, the general rule of thumb is one tablespoon per pound (15 ml/500 g). As with most raw materials, results may vary, so we strongly recommend small, lab-scale batches prior to any commercial manufacturing.

Recommended Storage: Please note that this butter should ideally be stored in a refrigerator to maintain its texture. It will become soft in warmer temperatures. For more detailed information, click here.

Shelf Life: Store in cool temperatures (below 25 °C) away from light and moisture in an air-tight container. The product will become liquid above ambient temperatures (e.g., 36 °C), but will re-solidify upon cooling without affecting functionality. This butter has a shelf-life of one year when stored properly.

This is a fantastic Pumpkin seed butter. I'm surprised by some of the comments. It does not have a strong scent. Mine looks like the picture above. It is so creamy and moisturizing. I make a hair formula for thinning hair from thyroid issues with it and putting on my scalp and in my hair overnight. - my hair looks and feels fantastic the next day. It is also amazing in eye-cream - but a little does go a long way. It whips up and makes a great ingredient in any skin care cream face and body

I received this a few days ago. The smell isn't strong at all, but what I received doesn't look anything like the picture. It smells like pumpkin seed, but it it brown and like unset pudding with a light layer of oil on top. I could pour the butter out of the container. It doesn't seem like it's bad to me, but it's not like the picture or like any of the reviews said. Mine isn't creamy, it pours and it's brown.

LOVE this butter!!! LOVE it!! It is way softer then my another favorite -shea butter. OMG! It literally melts the minute you touch it. It is great for face and body. Because it is pumpkin seed butter, it is great for regrowing or thickening eyebrows as well. Will DEFINITELY be buying again once my 3.3.oz finishes. You only need a little since it is very soft and viscous so even a 3.3 oz will last for a long time.

This is definitely going to be my favorite butter from now on. It is very soft so I don't think I would use it in a lip balm, but as a body butter, hand cream (with very little oil and whipping) or a hair conditioner (not sure if I want to do pomades) this butter would be my first choice. I can't believe the difference in my hands with just one application. for those of you who have issues with the smells of any butter, just call NDA up and send it back. I had one Ghana shea butter that stunk really bad, but the next one I got (which was by mistake cause I had ordered the fair trade shea) was just fine, very little smell. I think it just happens sometimes that some batches are stronger in smell.

This is my favorite butter, I whip with Rose hip seed oil. It isn't greasy and feels great on my skin. I bought a small bottle to start with, but I will be ordering the larger size very soon.

I am learning to love butters! Pumpkin Seed as a butter rather than an oil give me more options when formulating lotion bars.

Very smooth, off-white butter. Combined with aloe and a little beeswax it makes a great lip balm. Has almost no scent of it's own, so you don't have to worry about having to cover it.

Very smooth consistency, silky texture, and very little odor despite what another reviewer said. Hardly any "smell" at all. I use it straight under my eyes and mixed with shea butter in my face creams. A little bit goes a long way.

I really like this butter. It's a pretty orange shade and has a light scent.It's very creamy but needs to be whipped longer to really make it smooth.I add this in my new hair cream. My customers love it! Used on the skin it's non-greasy and leaves the skin soft/moisturized all day.My new favorite butter. So glad I can buy all my butters in one place.

Not a fan of this butter. The texture is fine, but I just couldn't get past the smell.

I've been using this every night on my neck and under my eyes for 3 evenings. Today my daughter told me she noticed my skin under my eyes had no bags and the darkness was gone. Love it straight out of the jar!!!!!!

I found this butter to be very creamy, not gritty and has a very natural color - yellow-green tinged, kind of like straw. It does have an extremely strong smell of pumpkin seed, but when I blended it with other butters and fragrance it was imperceptible.

I really love this butter. I didn't find it at all clumpy, either. It's very soft, has very little natural odor at all and is a slight creamy orange shade. Like a creamsicle kind of color. It can be used straight from the jar - which is what I find myself doing most often - or mixed with other butters and carrier oils to really moisturize the skin. Have used it on patches where I have contact dermatitis, as well as on my neck and under the eyes before going to bed. Really nice butter.

Wow this is a beautiful butter. I used it at 10% in my CP soap. It has a wonderful feel to it, a beautiful natural colour. I believe it is now one of my favourites and pumkin has so many beneficial properties.

This butter is deeply moisturizing. I used it in place of a carrier oil in some bath bombs, and it made my skin amazingly soft. Next time I will whip it up so it blends more smoothly.

It is a nice emolient. I, however, will not order this one again. It has a nauseating rancid smell and a gritty texture that I just don't like to work with dispite its acceptable performance within the finished product.

I must be honest, I'm not feeling the consistency of this butter. It's really gritty. However, once I rub it into my skin...it leaves my skin soft all day long.
