Papaya Enzymes

Papaya Enzymes

Papain

ALSO KNOWN AS Fruit enzymes

DESCRIPTION Papayas contain an enzyme called papain, which is found in abundance in the peel, leaves and orange meat of the fruit.

APPLICATION Papaya enzymes are excellent natural exfoliators. They are able to break down proteins (= proteolysis), which results in a softening effect, a sloughing of corneocytes and finer pores.

EFFECT Exfoliation with papaya enzymes can get rid of dead skin cells for fresher skin, a rosier complexion and a reduction in wrinkle depth.
