What does this mean?

Inci:Carica Papaya Seed Oil

A very stable, cold pressed oil that is rich in Omega 9 Essential Fatty Acid, Vitamins and Minerals. It is light and non greasy and excellent to brighten and improve the texture of the skin.


A pale to medium yellow, mobile liquid with a faint oily odour that is cold pressed from the ripe seeds of the papaya fruit (also known as Paw Paw). It is then filtered and refined.
  • Use 1% to 100%.
  • Oil soluble so cannot be used in water only products. It can be used in small amounts in water based gels that will hold it in suspension.
  • Heat stable so can be used in Stage 1 (fat stage) when making creams and lotions.
Blend Papaya Seed Oil with Castor Oil to make a simple but very effective cleaning oil. Work into the skin and then cover the face with a hot, damp cloth. This will open the pores and then wipe off the cleansing oil. This can be repeated several times.

Skin Care
  • Papaya Seed Oil is a non greasy oil that feels light on the skin and is easily absorbed. This makes it suitable for skin care, including acne prone skin.
  • Combine with Vitamin E to help improve the texture and the look of the skin. Can also be beneficial on the knees, elbows, knuckles and under the arms to brighten the skin.
  • Excellent to use in a night cream. Use in creams, lotions and anti aging serums.
  • A great oil to keep the skin hydrated and moisturised. It helps to reduce dryness which also helps to diminish the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. Dry and crepey skin will benefit greatly from using Papaya Seed Oil, especially when blended with oils like Avocado or Macadamia. Keeping the skin supple is key to younger looking skin.
  • Very effective to use it in foot creams especially when combined with heavier fats like Shea Butter and essential oils like Myrrh and Tea Tree.
  • Papaya Seed Oil has a wide selection of vitamin and mineral nutrients that are beneficial for nourishing the skin.

Hair Care

Papaya Seed Oil

I've used pure cold pressed oils for about 15 years. The papaya oil, I've used for the first time, makes my skin even softer, smoother and my skin tone seems to be more even in colouring. I'm 60 years old.
