We’re forever on the hunt for a natural radiance booster, so we spoke to Caudalie to discuss the how using Papaya in skincare can help achieve beautifully radiant bright skin.
Mathilde Thomas, the founder of Caudalie, explains that “Papayas are not only an extremely nutritious fruit but also wonderfully gentle and natural non-irritating exfoliants. Using them has a near-instantaneous brightening effect on the skin and they also improve skin’s texture”. It is for this reason, Mathilde has worked to incorporate the highly effective ingredient into her products.
Papaya enzyme gets its name as a mild exfoliator, for its ability to break-down proteins. It works to remove layers of rough or dull skin (proteins), stimulating cell renewal, as well as penetrating deep into the skin to cleanse pores and improve skin tone. This reveals skin which is smoother, brighter and beautifully radiant. What’s more, papaya enzyme’s gentle action makes it safe to use on sensitive skin as it is less likely to cause irritation or dryness, unlike typical exfoliants.
With this in mind, Caudalie formulated its VinoPerfect range which aims to brighten and even the complexion. The range has quickly become one of the brand’s bestselling ranges due to the visible results it provides. Within this range, both the VinoPerfect Radiance Moisturizer Broad Spectrum SPF20 and VinoPerfect Overnight Renewal Cream contain papaya enzyme.
Caudalie also developed a more concentrated formula – cue their Glycolic Peel Mask. Specifically designed for anyone suffering from dull complexion and in need of an instant boost of radiance, this dual-action, skin renewal treatment works like a scrub and a peel at the same time, for a renewed skin effect. Formulated with 85.7% natural origin, including papaya enzyme, this luxuriously creamy and non-irritating mask provides the ultimate spa-like glow from the comfort of your own home.
