DESCRIPTION

Historically, Indian healers have made pastes from crushed papaya seeds to treat rashes and other skin problems. The papaya seed oil has high quantities of oleic acid, up to 74% and generally its fatty acid composition is very close to that of olive oil.

Papaya oil cold pressed is high in Omega 6 and 9, Vitamins A & C and Potassium. The oil is easily absorbed and adds excellent conditioning properties to the skin. Papaya Seed oil also contains the enzyme papain, which helps dissolve excess sebum and impurities on the skin, gently removes dead skin cells (to help speed up cell renewal) and can be used on oily or problem skin.
