Papaya & Pineapple Lip Balm - Any 3 for £10


Availability: In stock


The juicy duo of cold pressed papaya seed oil and natural pineapple flavor makes for a tropical treat! The primary ingredient in this papaya pineapple balm is cold pressed papaya seed oil, which has loads of moisturising essential fatty acids and is great for the skin. Papaya seed oil also contains the enzyme papain, which is keen to quiet inflammation.

So, what's the deal with Papaya?

A genuine paw paw is a North American fruit from a tree (Asimina trivia) native to the East Coast. There is also a Mountain paw paw fruit tree (Vasconcellea pubescent) native to South America.... BUT most commonly paw paw is just another name for the good old papaya fruit (Carica papaya). The kind you and I are used to seeing in the grocery store and the kind that is referred to as "paw paw" down under.

Let us break it down for you.

Papaya (paw paw) leaf extract is just that, extract from the leaf of the papaya plant often used for it's medicinal properties. The papaya leaf is masticated and basically ‘juiced’. That juice is consumed straight or sold as a liquid or dried/powdered and sold in capsules/tablets. The leaf can also be extracted in alcohol like other herbal extracts. It contains many compounds and is commonly hailed for it's cancer fighting abilities. There is also papaya (paw paw) fruit "extract" used in many cosmetic formulas. The main constituent is: Papain. Papain is an enzyme that breaks down proteins. Papain is derived from the papaya fruit, leaf, roots, seeds (oil) and latex of the papaya plant in varying concentrations. Papain is commonly gathered from the green fruit of the papaya; this is when the enzyme content is highest. To get this extract, the green papaya fruit is blended, dried and powdered. The powder is consumed for it's anti inflammatory and digestive aid properties.

So, Papain does what?

Papain is often used topically in cosmetics to "break down" old skin cells (protein) which is why your skin can feel so soft after using a product that contains it (it's also commonly used as a meat tenderiser). Although it's tough to know where the papain in many cosmetics comes from... it is, if papaya based, most likely the green fruit (as opposed to the leaf, root, latex, etc). But here's the thing. Paw paw leaf extract, paw paw fruit extract, papaya extract, papain, etc... are water based components and not compatible for use in Hurraw balms (powders and extracts don't dissolve in oils). They could put some green papaya enzyme powder in the balms... but it won't do much for you as it would just be hanging out as an inert element. Tried and tested.

What IS great for skin is papaya (paw paw) seed oil, and Hurraw balm contains lots of it!
