Papaya enzyme and carrot extract delicately activate the skin's natural renewal process. Older surface skin cells are replaced with healthier, younger-looking cells and collagen and elastin production are stimulated. Calendula extract, allantoin, and vitamin B5 help assist the skin renewal process with their healing, soothing, and moisturizing properties.

  • Papaya Fruit Extract, also known as Papain, is derived from the fruit of the Papaya tree (Carica papaya). It gently exfoliates the skin, and helps increase skin cell renewal.
  • Daucus carota sativa (Carrot) Extract, is rich in antioxidants and helps increase skin cell renewal.
  • Calendula officinalis (Calendula) Flower Extract, also known as Marigold, has protective, healing, and soothing properties. 
  • Often listed as sodium hyaluronate, Hyaluronic Acid is a substance naturally made by the body (to aid in joint lubrication) or it can also be produced synthetically. In skincare it is commonly used as a moisture binding agent, as it is able to hold 1,000x its own weight in water.
  • Allantoin occurs naturally in the body but is also derived from the comfrey plant or uric acid. It is skin-soothing and conditioning, promoting healing and healthy tissue growth.
  • Panthenol, also known as Pro-Vitamin B5 or Vitamin B5, is a moisture-binding ingredient that hydrates and increases water retention in the tissue. It is also known to have calming, soothing and anti-inflammatory benefits for the skin.
  • Glycerine is also called glycerin or glycerol, glycerine is composed of oils and fats derived from a variety of natural sources. It is very humectant and binds well with moisture, working to soften the skin.
  • Aloe Vera (Aloe barbadensis) is derived from the popular evergreen succulent, Aloe Vera. Aloe is used in many products for its soothing properties. It is healing, hydrating and anti-inflammatory.

    As with any new skincare product, it's imperative to perform a patch test. Patch testing is a method of testing a new product to see if it will work for your skin. This test is often ignored, and can result in pretty severe acne or allergic reactions.

    Choose a small, discreet, patch of skin on your body, such as behind an arm or behind an ear. Then apply a small amount of the product in question according to the product directions. In the following 24 hours watch for signs of a reaction such as abnormal redness or irritation. If an adverse reaction occurs discontinue use. Please note that adverse reactions are the exception and are not common.
