Papain is an active ingredient in some skin care products. It can have some good influence on collagen, by which it can assist in removing freckles and enable the skin to appear even and white. It protects the cutin, accelerates metabolism of 11 epidermal cells and makes the skin tender. It is found that papain helps to open up clogged pores and is effective for addressing blemish prone skin. This enzyme from the papaya fruit also has anti-inflammatory and anti- bacterial properties. Because of its ability to remove dead skin cells, papain is found in a variety of exfoliating skin care products including facial scrubs, body cleansers, facial masks and peels. Papain is added in toothpaste, mouthwash and dentifrice. It can clean mouth and remove tartar and dental calculus.
