How papaya enzymes can refresh your oily scalp

Papaya is more than a delicious tropical fruit—it’s a popular ingredient in many skin and hair care products because it’s bursting with nourishing, protective, and oil-balancing benefits.

With the overall health of  your scalp and hair in mind, we formulated our new juice-inspired Superfoods Mango + Cherry Balancing Shampoo and Conditioner with papaya enzymes: the magic ingredient that works to balance oil production for healthy-looking hair and scalp.

How does papaya balance oily scalp and hair?

Papaya enzymes (also known as Papain) come from the raw fruit of the papaya plant. These tropical fruit-derived enzymes break down excess oil on your scalp and your hair to balance it out and encourage its long-term health.

If your scalp is oily or covered in buildup, it directly affects the health and appearance of your hair. Excess sebum (aka, oil) can clog and irritate your hair follicles, preventing them from properly absorbing the essential nutrients needed to grow healthy hair—and over time, this inflammation can lead to hair thinning and loss.

When you incorporate papaya enzymes into your healthy hair routine, the gentle ingredient will balance oil production without pulling out all the good, natural oils—just the excess oil so your scalp and hair look and feel healthy.
