DermaQuest: Mini-Pumpkin Peel

Dermaquest Mini-pumpkin Peel

Because you should know what you're putting on your face!

The ingredients: Cucurbita (Pumpkin Paste), Water, SD Alcohol, Mandelic Acid, Propylene Glycol, Lactic Acid, Hydroxyethyl cellulose, Polysorbate 20, Cucurbita Pepo (Pumpkin) Enzyme (see below), Phenoxyethanol (and) Benzyl Alcohol (and) Potassium Sorbate, Fragrance (see below)

Pumpkin Enzymes

Enzymes are catalysts for chemical processes: as catalysts they generally speed up or enhance a natural activity. This product is professional grade because the enzymes have been isolated and added to increase their total percentage. You can put a pumpkin in the blender and make paste but it won't be as enzymatically active as this product.


I want to grouse about fragrances because their ingredients are allowed to be hidden from consumers. Fragrance formulations are considered total trade secrets. Perfumers have too much power and need to reveal. That said, even "unscented" products are allowed to use scents, crazy huh? But it's the industry, until it changes all I can say is, the product smells nice and I wish they would go beyond what the industry allows and voluntarily list fragrance components.

Acids, Enzymes, and Solvents

They're all here and in good percentages. This product cleans and encourages skin turnover and shedding. It will help dissolve and break up congestion and get those pores clear. This product is great for brightening your look and treating some forms of acne.

Enzyme peels are generally considered light peels but because this formulation also contains lactic and mandelic acid, it's a top performing lightweight you can use yourself between facials. A chemical peel at the Spa is typically stronger and works more deeply but if you're consistent with this, it's a bargain at $28.
