Papaya extract

Papain, one of the active enzymes in papaya (Carica Papaya) fruits and other parts, has antimicrobial properties. Papaya can help reduce edema, discourage clotting, and promote wound healing, and the active enzymes also mildly exfoliate the skin.

Papaya extract is an alternative to alpha-hydroxy acids (AHAs), offering efficacy at low use levels. In addition, it can be formulated at neutral pH, reducing the irritation often seen with AHA products.
