Papaya Seed Oil
Our organically crafted Papaya Seed Oil is cold pressed from the seeds of Carica papaya, also called Papaw or Pawpaw, naturally cultivated in many tropical regions of the world. The rich concentration of Omega 3 and 6 essential fatty acids, Vitamins A, C & E, the natural exfoliating enzyme Papain makes Papaya Seed Oil an exotic addition to cosmetic applications, personal care formulations, soaps, skin, and hair care.
REPORTED BENEFITS AND USES
Papaya Seed Oil contains fatty acids, such as Oleic Acid and Linoleic Acid, that work as anti-inflammatory agents, helping reduce redness and irritation on the complexion. With a combination of anti-microbial, scar-reducing and exfoliating properties, Papaya Seed Oil helps to discourage acne and breakouts. In addition, this luscious and decadent oil has a light texture and is non-comedogenic, meaning that it doesn't clog the pores, but instead cleans them out and dissolves dead skin.
A gentle but powerful exfoliating enzyme, Papain helps to rejuvenate the skin by getting rid of dead skin cells and excess sebum, leaving skin with a more toned and tightened appearance. Known for its high concentration of Vitamin C, Papaya Seed Oil is a powerful antioxidant that helps protect skin against environmental aggressors and slow down signs of aging. Papaya (Pawpaw) Seed Oil is also effective in reducing the appearance of hyperpigmentation, dark spots and uneven skin.
When used in haircare, the antioxidants in Papaya Seed Oil work to soften and smooth dry, damaged hair, while the essential fatty acids works well for treating dry scalp and dandruff. Easily absorbed by the skin, Carica Papaya Seed Oil is widely used in many cosmetic product formulations, as a means to carry nourishing ingredients in creams, serums, and lotions deep into the skin.
Safety-Perform a skin patch test for allergies.
