Did you know the papaya fruit that we eat is also an ingredient that benefits our skin?
The Fruit of the Angels
Papaya is a tropical fruit originating from Latin America. When Christopher Columbus discovered the Papaya fruit in South America, he called it “the fruit of the angels” because it tasted so good.
Papaya is known for many health benefits and are eaten when ripe. An unripe papaya is often used in dishes like salads, stews, and curries while the seeds are used for teas and spices.
Papaya for the skin?
Papaya is rich in vitamins A, B-complex, C, E, antioxidants, and phytonutrients. Vitamin C is a super vitamin for the skin that promotes collagen production and protects the skin. Papaya contains abundant amounts of vitamin C along with other nutrients that all support skin health. Papaya extract will help improve the texture and tone of your skin while making it smoother and more supple without irritation.
An effective exfoliator, Papaya Extract also contains enzymes that removes dead skin cells, controls excessive oil, and tightens the pores.
