Cucurbita pepo



Name one healthy vitamin or fatty acid and pumpkin seed oil will probably have it! Carotenoids, vitamin E, omega-3 and omega-6...

Organic Pumpkin Seed Oil

Cucurbita pepo is native to China, which was the first pumpkin producing country in the world. It belongs to the cucumber (Cucurbitaceae) family, range from yellow to bright orange in colour and can grow very large and heavy. There are many annual record-breaking attempts from growing the largest to how fast one can carve a face into a pumpkin - can you beat 24 seconds?

The edible flesh, encased in a tough outer shell, contains an inner membrane and seeds. The seeds are usually coated in a thin husk (although huskless varieties exist) and are extremely nutritious.

Lush sources this organic oil in the UK. It is obtained through cold mechanical pressing to keep the maximum of components initially present in the seeds which give the oil its sought-after properties.
