Papaya Soap contains an enzyme called “papain,” also known as “papaya proteinase”, that breaks down certain proteins in the skin. It dissolves the dead skin cells on the surface of your face, making it useful as an exfoliant that reveals your newer, healthier skin cells. Papain has also been used to remove the outer layer of skin from wounds and ulcers and, with regular use, Papaya Soap could fade the appearance of scars over time. By the same principle, it could also slightly lighten dark spots and freckles.
