Our autumn seasonal favorite, a natural soap with the delicious aroma of freshly baked pumpkin pie, will have you daydreaming about harvest hayrides and campfires.
Plug the words "Pumpkin Spice Soap" into your favorite web browser. Are the soaps you find made with real pumpkin--or simply scented with synthetic pumpkin spice fragrance oil? Our Chagrin Valley Pumpkin Spice soap is made with real pumpkin, ground spices, and enriched with cocoa butter. This natural soap, colored by pumpkin pulp and turmeric, is loaded with beta-carotene.
While you are likely familiar with all the delicious treats you can make with real pumpkin, did you know that pumpkin also has great benefits when used on your skin?
From the seeds to the flesh, pumpkins are loaded with nutrients that are helpful for the skin. Real pumpkin pulp is rich in essential fatty acids, vitamins, minerals, and beneficial enzymes that help soothe and soften dry skin. Pumpkin pulp also adds a creamy texture to the soap. The moisturizing lather is filled the scent of warm essential oil blend combined with the perfect mix of spices (NO fragrance oils here). As you shower close your eyes and allow your senses to experience all the wonderful memories of the Fall season.
We use virgin pumpkin seed oil, cold pressed from the seeds, with a naturally dark green color and a nutty aroma. This highly nourishing and emollient oil is rich in vegetable protein and contains many valuable nutrients and phytosterols.
Turmeric has anti-inflammatory and healing properties. Rich in antioxidants, turmeric is a common ingredient in Ayurvedic skincare products to naturally promote glowing, smooth skin.
Made with REAL nourishing Pumpkin, organic spices and essential oils NOT pumpkin fragrance oil!

What Should I Use With My Soap to Clean My Face?
We believe in simple, effective cleansing for your complexion and that is accomplished with natural soap and water. The purpose of soap is to combine with oil and dirt on the body, which allows water to wash it away. The method you use to cleanse your skin, especially your face, is really personal preference. We thought we would share just a few examples.
Hand Lathering is usually the suggested method for cleansing delicate facial skin.
- Use lukewarm water to create a creamy lather in your clean hands.
- Gently massage the lather over your face using circular motions with your fingers.
- Rinse with cool water and pat dry.
Washcloth Washers: A washcloth can help remove dead cells and invigorate your skin. A gentle massage with a soft washcloth can help keep facial skin smooth and clean.
If you are using a washcloth:
- Rub the bar on a soft, clean, wet cloth to create a creamy lather.
- Apply to your face by a gentle massage using circular motions.
- Rinse with cool water and pat dry.
- Exfoliating or scrubbing too hard may cause the skin to become red and irritated.
- Use a clean washcloth, especially if you are prone to acne. Washcloths can re-deposit dirt and grime right back onto your skin.
- Washcloths can have soft or rough fibers. You want to use soft, NOT rough fibers on your face.
Never share washcloths or other accessories and replace or clean them often.
A Few Other Pointers:
- Use warm, not hot, water to wash your face.
- Use cool water as a final rinse to close your pores.
- Avoid products made with synthetic ingredients that can irritate facial skin.
- Avoid products that contain alcohol which can cause skin to become tight and dry.
- Apply a moisturizer immediately after washing your face while skin is still damp.
