Jordan & Petersen Skincare was born out of learning about ingredients. We wanted to be able to provide a skincare line that delivered results by sourcing only the highest-grade botanicals, plant peptides, and natural ingredients. Just as we learned along the way, many people underestimate the full power of natural ingredients. That is why we love to share our insights into what some of these are and how they help skin!

Papaya is one power packed fruit with great benefits inside and out! On the inside papaya can help with high blood pressure and help in preventing diabetes. This “Fruit of the Angels” has some mind-blowing skincare benefits that we will uncover for you.

More than a delicious treat, papaya also contains important, health-boosting components, such as vitamins, enzymes, minerals, phytochemicals, and terpenes. They also contain high levels of vitamin C and carotenoids, which work synergistically to boost beauty from the inside out. 

Over the years, papayas have steadily attained popularity in skincare due to their innate ability to lessen the appearance of scars and dissolve dead skin cells. This is due in part to an important enzyme called papain, which digests away dead and unhealthy skin cells. A popular ingredient in skin peels papain is also very beneficial for preventing and treating acne with its healing abilities. 

Papaya also contains bioflavonoid, the free radical fighting agents that protect against cellular aging and life-threatening diseases. They are rich in antioxidants, which help to strengthen immunity.  Aiding in healthy digestion, papayas help break down long protein chains into smaller more digestible ones. Its anti-inflammatory benefits can help heal wounds, blemishes and exfoliate dead skin cells away.
