Pumpkin Body Butter
October 6, 2014—Fearlessly Archived—Still a fun read; price & availability may have changed.
Don't eat Trader Joe's Pumpkin Body Butter! Yes, it contains pumpkin; yes, it does resemble whipped marshmallow; yes, it's vegan; yes, its scent is reminiscent of pumpkin pie; yes, it is called butter; and no, 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 exclusively for us 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 high-quality ingredients, are available at specialty shops for $10 and up. 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. If you like it (and you will), we strongly suggest you stock up, since it tends to sell out quickly each year. You'll find it with our other creams and lotions.
