We're always on the look out for natural ingredients which can work wonders on our skin and Papaya may just be our favourite new discovery.

Not only a superfood rich in antioxidants and nutrients, Papaya is a wonderful source of Vitamin B and C and is naturally rich in Alpha-Hydroxyl Acids (AHAs) all of which are essential for glowing, healthy skin.

If you long for a radiant, lit-from-within complexion, Papaya may just be the skincare ingredient you have been waiting for. We have curated an edit of our favourite Papaya Enzyme products to promote healthy, youthful-looking skin.

Skincare enriched with Papaya Enzyme

ELEMIS Papaya Enzyme Peel

Brighten, smooth and refresh your complexion with ELEMIS Papaya Enzyme Peel. Perfect for mature and even the most sensitive of skin types, the luxurious cream exfoliant combines seven active ingredients including Papaya Enzyme to slough away dead skin cells for a radiant finish.

Unlike many physical exfoliators, the smooth cream gently exfolaites without being abrasive or too harsh on the skin. Simply apply on to skin, leave on for fifteen to twenty minutes and rinse off to a glowing complexion.

Origins Never A Dull Moment Skin-Brightening Face Polisher

Scrub your way to a gorgeous glow with Origins Never A Dull Moment Skin-Brightening Face Polisher. Enriched with the extract of crushed Papaya, the exfoliating scrub buffs away impurities on the surface of the skin, lifting away rough, dry skin, sebum and any traces of makeup.

As potent Papaya Enzyme dissolves dead skin cells, using the scrub one or twice a week will reveal a brighter, more refined complexion.

Eve Lom Morning Time Cleanser

Using a brightening and refreshing cleanser each morning is the perfect way to ensure your skin glows all day long. Rejuvenating dull, tired skin, the Eve Lom Morning Time Cleanser works to rid the skin of dead skin cells and excess sebum for a balanced and refreshed finish.

With a concoction of Papaya Enzymes and Carrot Oil, the cleanser stimulates the natural production of collagen in the skin and visibly minimises the appearances of pores to leave your complexion soft, toned and radiant.

Caudalie Glycolic Peel

Perfect for dull, lacklustre skin in need of a radiance boost, the Caudalie Glycolic Peel gently exfoliates and renews the skin with a gentle formula made up of 85.6% natural origin ingredients.

The dual-action exfolianting mask improves pigmentation and minimises the appearance of dark spots to reveal a brighter, more even complexion and is even suitable for even sensitive skin types.

Trilogy Active Enzyme Cleansing Cream

As our skin's luminosity can deplete over time, a brightening, refreshing cleanser is the perfect way to add radiance back into your complexion. The Trilogy Active Cleansing Cream effectively eliminates dirt, impurities and traces of makeup without stripping or over-drying the skin.

Infused with active fruit enzymes, including Papaya Enzymes, and Vitamin E, the nourishing cleanser sweeps away dead skin cells to reveal a refined complexion with renewed radiance.
