The papaya is the fruit of the large Carica Papaya herb that, along with its enzyme called papain, are used in many skin care and repair products. Papain works as a mild exfoliant and dissolves dead skin cells, making it ideal for treating acne and reducing wrinkles. Its skin renewal properties also fade dark marks and even skin tone.
