Provital Group makes their documentation available in the regions indicated below:

Papaya extract is produced from the fruits of Carica papaya. The 3 proteases in papaya latex (papain, chymopapain and papaya-proteinase III) have proteolytic activity. The ability to hydrolyze protein fibers is useful for cosmetic products aimed at weakening body and facial hair. Degradation of the keratin in the hair follicle reduces hair shaft diameter and consequently facilitates hair removal. Thus, papaya extract is useful to formulate cosmetic depilation products.

Due to its keratolytic action, papain degrades dead cells in the outermost skin layer, thus improving skin health, hygiene and brightness (Alcalde, MT, 2003). Topical chymopapain and papain are efficiently used to treat children’s burns and recurrent plantar ulcers in leprosy patients, because they prevent infection and accelerate wound healing. Papaya-Extract H.G. is recommendable to formulate cosmetic products with the following activities: depilatory, anti-aging, skin cleansing purifying, antiseptic, moisturizing, conditioner and exfoliating.
