Often times, when we think of pumpkin, we think of the large, rounded, orange-yellow fruit that gets carved into a spooky jack-o-lantern and put on our front porch for the month of October. And while that may be true, we seldom think about all of the health and nutritional benefits that we can obtain from pumpkin, too. However, here at Harvey Prince, we haven’t forgotten! In fact, we have used pumpkin essence and pumpkin extract to create one of our best luxury perfumes, Temptress; our moisturizing Temptress body cream; and our hydrating Temptress shower gel for you sniffing pleasure!


So, what exactly are the benefits of pumpkin essence and pumpkin extract, you may wonder. Our team here at Harvey Prince has done research to discover just what makes pumpkin essence so beneficial to your body! For starters, pumpkin oils possess very high levels of natural antioxidants and polyunsaturated fatty acids. Pumpkin oils are especially high in gamma-tocopherol, a form of Vitamin E, which is a powerful antioxidant.

Antioxidants help protect cell structure and health by neutralizing unstable molecules generated from sources like radiation, air pollution, and peroxides, which are also referred to as “free radicals”. If your skin is left vulnerable to these free radicals, its surface becomes susceptible to wrinkles, infection, or other types of damage.

By harnessing the antioxidant power of Vitamin E in pumpkin extracts, we at Harvey Prince were able to create the best moisturizing body lotion with Temptress body cream! The more you use our cream, the more supple and smooth your skin becomes as it absorbs all of the pumpkin extract benefits for your skin!


In addition to the high levels of Vitamin E, pumpkin oils are comprised 98% by four fatty acids: palmitic, stearic, linoleic, and oleic acids. Palmitic acid works to promote natural oil regeneration. This is important in order for the skin to retain its protective barrier. With too little oil, the skin is more inclined to crack and bleed, and furthermore be exposed to a great risk of infection and disease. Stearic acid acts as a lubricant allowing the skin to retain the proper moisture balance that is vital to maintain both good health and good looks. Linoleic acid is an essential fatty acid, meaning that our bodies don’t manufacture it and so we must find ways to integrate the acid into our diets. Linoleic acid helps maintain smooth skin and will repair flaky, itchy, or dry skin. Oleic acid works to maintain and restore skin’s moisture and lubrication. We’ve harnessed the best of all of these natural acids to create our hydrating, refreshing Temptress body wash that will moisture your skin as it lathers, cleanses and exfoliates to bring out the best in your skin!

Taken together, it becomes obvious that pumpkin oils offer significant benefits for skin health and skin maintenance. The powerful antioxidants and essential fatty acids that the oils provide make pumpkin a no-brainer for a product line at Harvey Prince.

In fragrance, we used pumpkin essence to create Temptress for those perfumistas that want a sensual scent to bring out their sultry personalities. Inspired by scientific research from the Smell & Taste Treatment and Research Foundation in Chicago, which found the combination of pumpkin and lavender scents to be the most arousing to men, we formulated Temptress to attract men and to make you feel empowered. Temptress is clearly the best sexy perfume for women with fabulous pumpkin essence!
