Papayas, also known as pawpaws or papaws, are a native of tropical America (Central America and the Caribbean, including Mexico, Costa Rica, and the Bahamas). Their plethora of health benefits along with their sweet taste and vibrant color make papaya a popular fruit. The flavor of this melon-like fruit is often compared to cantaloupe or mango.
The papaya is botanically a berry. It may look like it grows from a tree, but the papaya is actually the fruit of an herb. And a tall one at that — the papaya tree can grow over 10 feet tall.
Used in skincare, papaya is a natural, gentle, but powerful exfoliating enzyme that effectively dissolves sebum, unclogs pores and sloughs off dead skin cells.
Abundant in vitamins A, C and E, essential fatty acids, beta carotene, antibacterial and anti-inflammatory properties that helps to lighten dark spots, blemishes and acne and increase cellular renewal.
