Cucumber Peel extract makes a wonderful addition to skin-care products for its cooling and skin-tightening properties! It is greenish brown in color with a faintly woody scent. Cucumber is rich in vitamins and minerals essential for a healthy looking skin. In addition, Cucumber Peel offers a natural source for a powerful antioxidant. Cucumber Peel Extract can be used to keep the facial skin feeling soft and smooth. It also acts as a skin toner and can be used in astringents to revitalize stressed and tired skin, leaving it refreshed and radiant looking.
Usage: If making a solution it is recommended that 1 part extract be dissolved in 10 parts of distilled water.

Rating: I used this in a Cucumber Honey Yogurt soap. One half of the batter had the cucumber extract hydrated in a bit of distilled water along with some fresh cucumber juice. The other half had some powdered honey in it. I scented it with citrus EOs. It was a huge hit with friends and family.
I also added it to a Out Damn Spot Soap along with some other ingredients like tamanu oil known to brighten skin.

Rating: Mine also is the brownish color a previous reviewer described. Aside from not really liking the color, which also browns any product I put it in and is the only reason for the 4 stars, I love the product. Use it in a facial toner as well, which has gotten rave reviews from all who've tried it. Will be trying it in a new serum I'm working on as well, and it works great in a cucumber/aloe lotion I do for sunburn relief.

By:Sarah, Halifax, Nova Scotia Top ReviewerDate: Loyal Customer Since: 26-Dec-2013
Rating: Great extract! I use it in my facial toner recipe mixed with water, glycerine, aloe juice and floral water. Dissolves nicely. No odor but it does give a light orangy-brownish tint to my final product.
Rating: Works great in my eye cream! Can actually 'feel' the tightening properties. Very good for tired, puffy eyes.

Rating: I recd my cucumber extract and while I dont want to split hairs, just a note that mine came through as a dirty brown colour..not the green as it says. Still, hopefully the benefits outweigh the colour!

By:Madison, Hamilton, Ontario Top ReviewerDate: Loyal Customer Since: 11-Mar-2012
Rating: Has a light cucumber scent when mixed with liquids. Makes a wonderful toner, but because the powder was a dirty green, the final product turned out khaki. Still a great quality product.

By:Caroline, Bearn, Quebec Top ReviewerDate: Loyal Customer Since: 30-Jul-2006
Rating: Great to add in a lotion or eye/face treatment. Ingredients are the key to selling your products and people recognize cucumber for it's long standing benefits. Always packaged well and imo a quality product (which could be why they're always selling out) ;)
