So following on from yesterday’s blog, This is the 2nd key ingredient that goes into making our Super 7 Facial seed oil.
Papaya Seed Oil – Carica papaya Seed Oil
Papaya is expressed from the seeds of the papaya fruit (also known as paw paw).
Papaya Seed Oil contains ‘papain’ – a natural fruit enzyme that gently removes dead skin cells and unclogs pores to improve the texture and tone of the skin.
Papain boasts both antibacterial and anti-inflammatory properties that can be extremely beneficial for acne and other skin conditions such as eczema and psoriasis.
The oil is light, non-greasy and easily absorbed by the skin. It is rich in antioxidant vitamins A and E and also contains high levels of omega 9 essential fatty acid (oleic acid).
It has fabulous moisturising properties and acts as a protective barrier to seal in water and prevent moisture loss. It can help to reduce dryness, fine lines and wrinkles, and promote smoother, softer and younger looking skin.
It’s also great for our hair – Papaya is known to combat static, which isn’t a great look! 😊 plus soften and smooth dry, damaged hair.
‘Papaya Seed Oil is also thought to be useful when treating fungal infections such as athlete’s foot’.
In tomorrow’s blog I’ll be talking about my 3rd key ingredient and the skin loving benefits it offers.
