The Magical Power Of Papaya! – What Does Papaya Contain?

The topical application of Papaya for skin is not just limited to whitening and smoothening of the skin. A study has, in fact, proved that the fruit can also heal dreadful skin diseases such as chronic skin ulcers.1

Vitamin A

Retinol or vitamin A is known to eliminate fine lines and wrinkles, withstand an injury and delay the process of aging after its topical application.

This is because of its collagen-boosting property and its ability to retain water in the skin. 2 Papaya contains vitamin A (1531 IU for 140 grams) which fulfills 31% of daily vitamin A requirement.

Vitamin C

Our skin naturally contains vitamin C which promotes the synthesis of collagen and protects our skin from Ultraviolet damage.

Excessive exposure of skin to harmful sun radiation and various pollutants deprives the epidermal layer of skin from vitamin C but you can fix this by consuming vitamin c rich foods!

Relishing a cup of papaya (140 grams) helps you meet more than 100% of daily vitamin C requirement.

Consumption of papaya is known to deliver vitamin C to the skin but the topical application can also help your skin to absorb the vitamin. 3 4 5

Vitamin C helps in

  • Fighting free radicals which can damage the skin
  • Boost collagen & improve skin elasticity
  • Reduce hyperpigmentation & spots

Since our skin is exposed to harmful radiations and pollutants, we need to enrich our diet with skin-friendly phytonutrients which can both internally and topically repair the damage and make our skin healthy.

Papaya contains lycopene, the treatment of which is known to enhance the skin 10 times greater when compared to skin that is not treated with the substance. (6)


Our body converts beta-carotene into vitamin A which is why we need our body to be supplied with abundant amounts of the phytonutrient for proper nourishment.

Beta-carotene can stop the free radical activity which can otherwise damage the skin!
