Trader Joe's Pumpkin Body Butter is one of those rare products that we implore you not to eat. For while it does contain pumpkin, it does in fact resemble whipped marshmallow, it's vegan, its scent is reminiscent of pumpkin pie, and it is called butter, it’s not the kind of butter you slather on toast. Rather, it's the kind of butter you slather on yourself -- your skin, to be specific.
Pumpkin Body Butter is a thick, rich, moisturizing cream made just for Trader Joe's. It was developed with high quality ingredients that nourish and replenish the skin, notably coconut oil, shea butter, and pumpkin seed oil. It's free of parabens and phthalates. We recommend Pumpkin Body Butter for use on very dry skin; its skin-healing effects are immediate, and it absorbs into your skin quickly without leaving an oily residue.
Similar skin care creams, made with similar ingredients, are available at specialty shops for $10 and up. At Trader Joe's, we’re selling each eight ounce jar of Pumpkin Body Butter for $4.99, every day, for as long as Pumpkin Season lasts. You'll find it with our other creams and lotions.
