Papain Enzyme Powder

Papaya contains the proteolytic enzyme papain which helps to gently breakdown and digest large proteins that have accumulated on the skin. It’s known as a “skin-debriding agent” for this reason, contributing to the breakdown of protein in the skin, helping to remove damaged skin cells, allowing the healthy tissue to heal. The papain found in papaya is attributed with soothing skin irritations and its anti-inflammatory properties make it an ideal ingredient for acne and blemish-prone skin. Its natural and effective exfoliating properties brighten the skin by removing dead skin cells and flaky patches on the top layer of your skin.

Cosmetics Benefits of  Papain Enzyme Powder in Skincare:

Papain will help increase cell renewal. This is important for treating problem skin as excess dead cells trap sebum and dirt on the skin and often clog pores. Proper exfoliation will also help minimize the appearance of fine lines and optimizes translucency to combat dulling effects that occur overtime. Ultimately the protease will leave the skin feeling soft and smooth while creating a rejuvenated aesthetic.

Papain can also help with hyperpigmentation which can occur after breakouts, and can help the skin to recover after any scarring. The combination of enzymes, phytochemicals and high beta-carotene content helps to brighten the skin and repair the skin’s natural complexion.

It is also highly effective in retaining its proteolytic activity over a wide range of skin pH ranges, including those with acne or blemish prone skin where the facial skin pH tends to be lower than normal.
