Papaya Extract derived from the seed of the Papaya fruit; the fruit contains the enzymes papain and chymopapain, which have exfoliating properties that remove the appearance of dead skin.

Benefits and how does it work?
Moisturizes skin: Papaya can be a boon for those with dry skin. Using a papaya face pack can make your skin soft and supple. The enzymes present in papaya can assist in treating dry and flaky skin and hydrate it.
Clears Pigmentation: If a bout of acne has left you with scars, or if you are suffering from uneven pigmentation, papaya can come to your rescue. Papaya has skin lightening properties that help clear blemishes and pigmentation. Also, the beta-carotene, enzymes, and phytochemicals present in papaya help promote fairness. The enzyme papain, along with with the alpha-hydroxy acids, acts as a powerful exfoliator and dissolves inactive proteins and dead skin cells. This, in turn, can make your skin lighter and softer.
Reduces Wrinkles: Papaya peel can help reduce the signs of aging.
Reduces Under-Eye Dark Circles: Using green papaya pulp on dark circles is a good way to get rid of them. Since it is a natural bleaching agent, green papaya helps erase skin discoloration.
Controls Acne Breakout: Papaya treats acne and prevents future breakouts as well.
