Papaya Seed Oil 100 mL
Papaya seed oil is also known as paw paw seed oil, papaya oil and carica papaya seed oil. Papaya is native to Mexico and Central America, and is now cultivated in the Carribeans, the Phillipines, some parts of Africa, Australia and other countries.
Papaya seed oil is rich in vitamins, minerals, fatty acids, and an enzyme called papain. Papain acts as an exfoliant, gently dissolving dead skin cells and sebum. Unlike typical chemical exfoliants, papain reduces brown spots, lightens post-acne marks, and brightens all over without any unwanted irritation. Pretty remarkable. In addition, papaya seed oil contains anti-inflammatory compounds that calm and soothe. Even more impressive, papaya seed oil contains antibacterial and antibiotic properties that have been shown to treat rashes and minor skin irritations.
The oil is light yellow and has no scent. Papaya oil has a non-greasy, non-oily texture. It is light and easily absorbed. Papaya seed oil has a very stable shelf life compared to other generic oils, such as olive oil. The best period to use it is before 2 years since manufacture. It is still okay to use for 4 years from manufacture.
Papaya seed has mind-blowing levels of vitamins, particularly vitamins A, B and C. It has incredible antioxidant levels, as well as other properties. Some of these constituents include:
While papaya seed oil contains remarkable amounts of vitamins A, B, C and even E, it’s interesting to look at the unique compound of papaya seed oil: papain.
Papain is found in large quantities within papaya oil. It is a powerful enzyme that is primarily known to breakdown proteins in digestion. Other benefits of papain include treating alimentary disorders such as bloating and diarrhea, treating shingles, reducing inflammatory diseases in the body and killing parasitic worms.
For the skin, papain offers a wide variety of benefits. It is a potent medicine for treating skin disorders such as psoriasis. It also has powerful anti-inflammatory properties that reduce puffiness, swelling and edema in the skin. Papain’s anti-bacterial, anti-fungal and anti-microbial properties help eliminate acne, pimples and blackheads on the skin.
