Renee Rouleau Pumpkin Peel - Product Description
The active ingredients in Renee Rouleau’s Pumpkin Peel are; Pumpkin Pulp Extract-enzyme exfoliant, Carrot Tissue Extract- antioxidant, Papain Enzyme-exfoliant derived from papaya, Bromelain- exfoliant derived from pineapple.
Unfortunately the manufacturer does not explain any of the reasons or benefits for including any of their active ingredients. This is really disappointing for a number of reasons. The first being, as a consumer I have a lot of choices when it comes to skincare products. Consumers who take the time to visit a website are obviously those whom are interested in collecting information. This oversight can be the difference between a purchase and just a hit on the manufacturer’s website.
Since there was such a gross absence of information listed on the website, I was forced to search for third party information in reference to the benefits of the product’s active ingredients.
Pumpkin Smoothing Peel contains over 100 ingredients know to have properties that help skin look and feel younger. Phylis Larkins of the North American Plastic and Reconstruction Surgery says “Pumpkin is high in zinc, which is really good for the skin, high in beta carotene, Vitamin C, Vitamin A,” Vitamins A and C are antioxidants. Antioxidants fight free radicals.
Papaya carrot and pineapple contain enzymes that soften and heal the skin.
The enzymes in these fruits fight free-radical damage and are known to reduce age spots and fine lines and leave the skin supple. They also cleanse the skin by dissolving dead cells from the skin’s surface.
The product is both hypo allergenic and non-comedogenic. When using an exfoliator, or peel, the use of sunscreen is highly recommended, as the skin becomes photosensitive.

Renee Rouleau Pumpkin Peel - The Bottom Line
Based on the information collected, Pumpkin Peel is too expensive. When the manufacturer failed to provide information about the active ingredients and their benefits, I searched the internet, and found a number of Pumpkin Peel recipes that I could make at home for a fraction of the cost and a just a quick trip to the produce department.
