Professional skin care companies love papaya too, and include it often in products, such as in the Papaya-Pineapple De-Aging Mist from Pevonia Botanica, which hydrates and refreshes skin. Day Zyme with Green Papaya Proteolytic Enzyme from Jan Marini Skin Research helps skin appear firmer, smoother and retexurized; and Zia Natural Skincare’s Fresh Papaya Enzyme Mask gently exfoliates all skin types. The Enzyme Exfoliation Mask with Papaya Enzymes from Pamela Hill Skin Care helps dissolve dead skin cells, and Papaya-Green Tea Environment Hand Protection Lotion from Cuccio Naturalé revitalizes and moisturizes. Additionally, Elemis offers a Papaya Enzyme Peel to help smooth, brighten and clarify the complexion.

Bring the beach

Bring a taste of the exotic to your spa, especially this year when your clients may be enjoying staycations instead of vacations. Make your spa a beach away from the beach by offering the tantalizing fruit of papaya on your menu.
