Product Rating: 4.8/5 (As per 15 Customer Reviews)
Botanical Name: Carica Papaya
Appearance: Pale yellowish orange to cream colored free flowing powder.
Papaya Powder is gently refreshing with a sweet, summery fragrance. It is excellent for balancing the oiliness of the skin & working as an exfoliant on dry areas. Papaya also is often used in skin care products to give a rejuvenated look to the skin. Papaya contains Vitamin A, which helps to reveal the next layer of the skin and exposes a radiant complexion. Vitamin C is also an antioxidant with wonderful qualities that helps to smooth and soften the skin.
Recommended Usage: The maximum quantity of powdered fruit extract should not exceed 0.5% of the total product, while in tincture form the maximum amount of fruit extract must not exceed 5%. Please be aware that there may be small bits of dark particles in this extract. These particles are part of the papaya fruit that has solidified and they will dissolve in liquid.
Note: The fruit extracts possess all the nutrients and beneficial properties of the fruit, but may or may not have the aroma of the actual fruit. Fruit extracts are meant for adding nourishing properties to the formulation and not for scenting the products.

Rating: I've been waiting for this extract to get back in stock along with the other fruit extracts - This one is probably my favourite along with the Mango extract. Made a Mango Papaya CP soap, added to trace, used Buriti oil to colour the soap yellow/orange. I didn't need to add any fragrance and this soap is my absolute favourite! I also made a Papaya Enzyme facial toner and a Tropical facial cleanser with Kaolin clay and fruit extracts of Papaya, Mango, Guava, Banana and Pineapple - HEAVEN!!! Thanks NDA for carrying these great products for amazing prices!

Rating: I've been adding this to my clay masks, and had AMAZING results. I suffer from hormonal acne, and it has significantly decreased. My overall skin tone has also improved, it's brighter and much more ever. Great addition to my masks! My skin just feels refreshed and clean after using the mask.
I don't find it has a scent though. Possibly because I'm using it with Australian Green clay which has an overpowering musty smell.
Rating: This Papaya fruit powder extract is one part of my favorite fruit powder trio, alongside the Guava and Mango fruit powder extracts! Makes a wonderful face mask, and can blend well in a CP soap. I look forward to working more with these fruit powder extracts.

Rating: Apart from working as a good face exfoliation mask, this extract is also great in struggling with unwanted hair.
It will work only when hair is removed together with its root (waxing, etc.). I create a simple lotion with the papaya extract and apply it after the epilation. Visible hair reduce, and plus it helps greatly in preventing hair in-growth

By:Marilyn, Newmarket, Ontario Top ReviewerDate: Loyal Customer Since: 11-Jan-2010
Rating: Doesn't smell like the fresh fruit that I know but has its own inviting scent. I appreciate its solubility in water and am now using it in my facial moisturizer.

Rating: I was shocked at how great a mask this papaya makes with just the addition of some rose water. My pores virtually disappeared! Smells pleasant, and a great price.

Rating: I nearly burst into tears when I saw such a wonderful price for this! I was dying to find a place with lots of extracts for me to use in my lotion, and now I have found one! And close to home to! No more having things shipped across the border and getting slammed with fees! Hurrah!
