Most of the finest ingredients in the products we sell are taken directly from nature, with extracts derived from plants, fruits and even clay. Today, we’re taking a look at a tropical ingredient which features in many of our products, the papaya. According to Wikipedia “The fruit is a large berry about 15–45 cm long and 10–30 cm in diameter. It is ripe when it feels soft (as soft as a ripe avocado or a bit softer) and its skin has attained an amber to orange hue.” – but what can it do for your skin? Read on to find out:
This cleansing mousse is designed to get the skin smoother and cleaner than ever and harnesses the skin-polishing power of papaya, along with grape juice, Japanese white mulberry to exfoliate and gently slough away dull, dead skin cells. It also contains hyaluronic acid and neroli oil to ensure the skin receives a wash of moisture while you’re cleaning.
These facial pads from Elemis do so much more than cleaning your skin. They contain a tri-enzyme formula which actively breaks down the surface dead cells to gently yet effectively resurfacing the skin. It contains a special enzyme derived from exotic Papaya which breaks down proteins into smaller molecules to reveal clearer, more supple skin.
Serums are a potent problem-solver for various skin issues and this one contains the same tri-enzyme technology as the resurfacing facial pads. This serum smooths the skins surface using papaya extract, as well as other botanical ingredients, revealing a stunning complexion. It’s formulated in line with the ELEMIS Promise, which means it contains no parabens, no SLES and no artificial colours.
This peel from Elemis is a non-abrasive exfoliator which uses extract of papaya to slough away dead skin cells and reveal a radiant complexion beneath.

It also contains a seaweed also known as fucus vesiculosu which is rich in minerals and trace elements and has powerful moisturising properties.
This daily wash from Elemis helps to encourage the cell renewal process of your skin, getting rid of old, dead cells and encouraging the growth of new ones. It supports the skin’s micro flora without altering the skin pH and uses papaya extract to provide a non-abrasive peeling action.
