Green Papaya Extract
Papaya is the fruit of the plant Carica Papaya.
Unripe papaya fruit is rich in 2 enzymes: Papain (also known as vegetable pepsin) and Chymopapain and a mixture of other constituents.
The enzyme Papain breaks down inactive proteins and eliminates dead skin cells, working as an excellent natural exfoliant and Chymopapain shows antimicrobial activity.
Papaya helps in preventing premature aging and has great skin–firming and anti-inflammatory properties - it is known to be anti-aging.
Since, green papaya is a rich source of Papain, it can be used for skin whitening. It helps in removing blemishes, dark spots and provides an even tone to your skin.
Blend papaya with honey or/ and yogurt to make a nourishing, hydrating and skin-brightening face mask.

Additionally, when it is used in making soap, producing creams, lotions and other beauty products it also works as a natural antioxidant that prevents the oils and butters turning rancid and, in this way, prolongs shelf-life of beauty products.
