Pumpango enzyme (Carica Papaya, Mangifera Indica & Lactobacillus/Pumpkin fruit extract)

The synergistic integration of Carica Papaya Fruit Extract, Mangifera Indica Fruit Extract, and Lactobacillus/Pumpkin Fruit Ferment Filtrate in this formulation amplifies their individual benefits. This potent blend offers a comprehensive approach to skincare, providing exfoliation, nourishment, antioxidant protection, and skin renewal. Perfect for softening, exfoliating, and smoothing the appearance of fine lines, this pumpango enzyme is ideal for incorporation in exfoliating formulations. The pumpango enzyme is capable of enhancing cellular renewal to provide excellent exfoliating benefits without the common irritation associated with AHA’s or traditional enzymes. The pumpango enzyme was evaluated for its ability to accelerate cellular renewal by means of a traditional Dansyl Chloride Cell Renewal Study.

Mango (Magnifera indica) is native to Southern Asia, specifically Burma and eastern India and is considered the “king of fruits” in Ayurvedic medicine Mangos are juicy, yellow-orange fruits rich in vitamins and minerals and high in fiber. The nutrient rich profile of the mango makes the fruit highly sought after for aiding weight loss, helping digestion, and promoting healthy skin. Papaya (Carica papaya) is native to tropical America spanning the area from southern Mexico to the Andes in South America. Papayas have a high content of antioxidant nutrients such as carotenes, vitamin C, and flavonoids; as well as B vitamins, minerals and fiber. Papaya contains the digestive enzyme papain which, when applied topically, can break down inactive proteins and eliminate dead skin cells to rejuvenate and exfoliate skin. The Pumpango enzyme provides exfoliation, reduces the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles and offers a great alternative to alpha hydroxy acids.

Sustainably manufactured, the pumpango enzyme is extracted from the unused residual fruit pulp, along with the intact chaperone proteins, which helps increase stability and higher enzyme activity. Pumpango enzyme may be used in cleansers, facial masks, anti-age creams, anti-acne products, exfoliators, shampoo and conditioner as well as other hair care treatments.

The pumpango enzyme was evaluated for its ability to accelerate cell renewal by means of a traditional skin pigmentation assay protocol. Skin cells are frequently exposed to ultraviolet light damage and other chemical and environmental aggregates. Their death and replacement through cellular renewal processes minimize the potential longer-term harmful effects of these exposures. Aiding in the processes of cellular renewal can improve the skin’s physical appearance as well as function as a protective barrier.
