A fruity shower cream which cleanses and exfoliates, making the skin smoother and suppler with its natural substances.

Papaya contains enzymes and has always been used as an exfoliant in the tropics. Micro-pearls of jojoba wax gently remove superficial roughness. Pure coconut oil nourishes the skin.

Suitable for regular use and perfect before a pampering oil bath.

LIGNE ST BARTH uses the flesh from fresh papayas from neighboring islands. The enzyme-rich orange flesh is chopped by hand and its juice is extracted for use in our cosmetic formulas. The micro-pearls of jojoba wax reinforce the emollient and gentle the exfoliating effects of the papaya extract by naturally removing cell debris and pollution residue without being aggressive to your skin. The nourishing and softening effect of coconut oil prevents skin dehydration.

The papaya tree (Carica papaya L.), which is widely cultivated in the Caribbean, is an evergreen shrub whose leaves are grouped together at the top, resembling a palm.

Its fruit – the papaya – is rich in vitamin C and pro-vitamin A, as well as vitamins E, B1, B2, B5, B9, potassium, calcium and magnesium. The many ways in which the papaya is used in the cosmetics and pharmaceutical industries are linked to its papain content. Papain is an important proteolytic enzyme renowned for its effect on dead skin cells, promoting skin renewal and improving the texture of the skin. The Caribbean Indians used papaya as a meat tenderizer, and it is still used as such to this day in the West Indies. A decoction of papaya tree leaves was traditionally prescribed to aid digestion.

The latex in the plant has also been used for centuries due to its therapeutic properties. It is applied to irritated skin and wounds to disinfect them, soften the tissue and encourage regeneration of the cells. Compresses prepared with the flesh of the fruit also provide relief, heal burns and soothe rheumatism. Papaya also contains catechin (a powerful antioxidant found in green tea), which helps combat ageing of the skin.

Use the Papaya Peeling Shower Cream once or twice a week as part of your beauty ritual, massaging into wet skin with light, circular motions before rinsing off thoroughly.
When treating rough patches, however, moisten the product before exfoliating on dry skin. The luxuriously soft cream leaves skin supple, smooth and radiant, swathing it in a delicious fragrance with a delicate hint of fruit.
