Papaya is said to work as a gentle skin-brightening exfoliator thanks to its papain content. Papain is a proteolytic enzyme which breaks down proteins & scar tissue, and helps with the skin’s natural desquamation process (where dead skins cells are sloughed away and replaced with new ones). This helps to accelerate new tissue growth, speed up skin regeneration & wound healing, improve blood circulation & overall skin texture, tone & hydration, ultimately leaving skin smoother & more even. 

It is also said to help de-clog pores, making it useful in the prevention & treatment of acne.

Papaya also contains vitamin A & vitamin C which are known to be potent antioxidants. These can help to neutralise the formation of free radicals which helps to slow down visible signs of ageing, such as wrinkles & hyperpigmentation, caused by environmental oxidative stress, i.e. exposure to pollution & UV light.

The glycerin content of papaya glycerite helps to give your formulations a humectant boost which also helps with skin hydration.

Papaya glycerite is suitable for most skin types though sensitive skin types might wish to perform a patch test first.

Add to the cool down phase of your formulation when temperature is <40°C
