Benefits of Papaya

You can't be called the "Tree of Life" if you don't have some special powers. Luckily for papaya or paw paw as our friends in Australia call it, this nutrient-rich fruit is packed full of vitamins, minerals, enzymes, and antioxidants, and is the chief inspiration for our Organic Paw Paw Salve.

In case you are only know how yummy papaya tastes and are not familiar with it as a topical solution, we are breaking down some of the top benefits of this wonder fruit.

Vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants

Papaya’s high concentration of Papain enzyme, vitamin A, C, and E help to prevent damage from the sun, remove dead skin cells, and fight free radicals. This helps to slow the aging process and reduce wrinkles and fine lines.


Papain is also known for its skin cleansing through exfoliation and the removal of dead skin which helps to get rid of clogged pores. When applied directly to the skin, papaya has both a tightening and brightening effect, leaving a lighter, brighter, clearer and more youthful look.


Papaya's high water content provides soothing hydration and nutrition keeping the skin soft, supple, and moisturized.

As you can see, the benefits of papaya cannot be denied. Along with the other hand-selected ingredients in our formula, we call our Organic Paw Paw Salve "everyday food for your skin."
