Papaya Seed Oil

Posted on





INCI name: Carica papaya seed oil



Also known as Pawpaw, Papaya seed oil is obtained by cold pressing dried papaya seeds. It is slightly orange in colour and is produced in Kenya and Uganda.


Papaya seed oil is high in oleic acid (up to 74%) and contains significant amounts of stearic and palmitic acids. As with other plant oils that are high in oleic acid, papaya seed oil is stable, keeps well and provides emollience and conditioning in skin care products.


Add papaya seed oil to soaps, creams, lotions, hair products and balms to incorporate its moisturising and conditioning qualities. The oil can added in any proportion to your mix.
