Facts of the heavenly 3 "P's" exfoliating homemade facial scrub

The anti-aging properties of the pineapple, papaya and pumpkin work in concert to effectively and naturally rejuvenate aging skin making these three fruit an excellent choice for a homemade facial scrub.


Pineapple is a natural source of the enzyme bromelain which is used medicinally to promote healing, reduce bruising, inflammation, swelling and pain.

This naturally potent antioxidant is a rich source of vitamins A, B1, B6, and C all of which help to reduce free radical activity, is a source of minerals, vitamins including potassium, citric acid and folic acid.

As an alpha-hydroxy fruit acid, pineapple exfoliates dead skin cells, stimulates skin repair and collagen production which reduces facial wrinkles.

Vitamin C synthesizes amino acids and collagen. As we all know, collagen is one of the primary building blocks for plumping sagging skin and reducing wrinkles.


Papayas have quite powerful medicinal properties. As a matter of fact, every part of the papaya plant can be used medicinally.

Rich in vitamins A, B and C, as well as in calcium, phosphorus and iron papaya is used to treat many skin disorders including acne, warts, and corns.  It is also used to reduce swelling and promote healing.


Pumpkin has natural healing properties, is an excellent organic source of vitamin A, C and E as well as rich in beta-carotene, antioxidants, amino acids and minerals.  

It is a skin softening agent with emollient attributes and is used as a natural cure for burns, and other skin inflammations.

All three of these potent "P" fruits are exceptionally strong fruit acids which work to remove dead skin cells that collect on the surface of the skin giving it a dull, dry appearance.

Fruit acids penetrate deep though the layers of skin to increase the rate of new skin cell regeneration and collagen formation, making them an extremely effective natural ingredient for an effective DIY exfoliating treatment suitable for most skin types.

Sugar cane is a natural source of glycolic acid. The sugar also provides an abrasive quality to the scrub to completely polish the surface of the skin for complete exfoliation.
