Papaya fruit extract contains antioxidants that help protect the skin from environmental damage and premature aging. The extract's composition of vitamins, particularly vitamin A, aids in promoting skin regeneration and reducing the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines.
High vitamin C content in papaya extract helps brighten the skin, reduce dark spots, and promote a more even skin tone. Enzymes present in papaya extract, such as papain, gently exfoliate the skin, removing dead skin cells and promoting a smoother, more radiant complexion.
