Papaya is a type of fruit that grows naturally in Mexico and throughout several tropical and sub-tropical areas in the Western hemisphere. Its active enzyme, papain, is used in soap to exoliate dead skin cells . Papain-based soaps are typically marketed specifically as papaya soap, and are believed to offer particular benefits due to their botanical content.
The exfoliating properties of papaya soap also make it an effective acne treatment when it is used on the face or on other acne prone skin. This is because one of the primary causes of acne is the tendency for dead skin cells to clog the pores instead of being shed from the skin's surface normally.
Dead skin cells and excess sebum oil can accumulate inside hair follicles, causing a pimple to form, when the skin's natural exfoliating process doesn't work as it should. Only through manual exfoliation can this cause be treated or eliminated.
We are still against unnatural skin whitening so we used Papaya which contains natural skin-brightening powers! Anecdotal evidence suggests that regular use of papaya soap can cause mild skin lightening over time. Papain does not chemically lighten the skin as do some skin bleaching creams, but by exfoliating away outer layers of skin that may be tanned or otherwise sun-damaged, papaya soap may reveal lighter, brighter layers of skin underneath.
We added tea tree into the mix and as you may already know, tea tree essential oil can clear up acne, helping to create naturally glowing smooth skin. Tea tree oil helps control blemishes without being overly drying for the skin. As a natural antiseptic, tea tree oil soap helps heal acne and other skin ailments. Tea tree oil reduces bacteria and inflammation, improving the appearance of mild to moderate acne with fewer side effects—such as stinging, burning and dryness—than those caused by commercial benzoyl peroxide acne preparations.
