The juicy duo of cold pressed papaya seed oil and natural pineapple flavor makes for a tropical treat!
The primary ingredient in our papaya pineapple balm is cold pressed papaya seed oil, which has loads of moisturizing essential fatty acids and is great for the skin. Papaya seed oil also contains the enzyme papain, which is keen to quiet inflammation.
Papaya (paw paw) leaf extract is just that, extract from the leaf of the papaya plant often used for it's medicinal properties. The papaya leaf is masticated and basically ‘juiced’. That juice is consumed straight or sold as a liquid or dried/powdered and sold in capsules/tablets. The leaf can also be extracted in alcohol like other herbal extracts. It contains many compounds and is commonly hailed for it's cancer fighting abilities.
There is also papaya (paw paw) fruit "extract" used in many cosmetic formulas. The main constituent is: Papain. Papain is an enzyme that breaks down proteins. Papain is derived from the papaya fruit, leaf, roots, seeds (oil) and latex of the papaya plant in varying concentrations. Papain is commonly gathered from the green fruit of the papaya; this is when the enzyme content is highest. To get this extract, the green papaya fruit is blended, dried and powdered. The powder is consumed for it's anti inflammatory and digestive aid properties.
