This tropical fruit is rich in vitamins A, C, E and K, and has antioxidant properties. It also contains magnesium, potassium, niacin, carotene, protein, fibre and an enzyme called papain that provides many health benefits. One of the most effective beauty benefits of papaya is that it contains natural bleaching properties. The papain enzyme in papaya has skin-cleansing properties that help get rid of clogged pores.
Freshly squeezed and mashed, Papaya puree makes this body lotion, a natural exfoliate leaving the skin, divinely smooth.
