Smooth and radiant skin with enzymes

Regular exfoliation can be very beneficial for radiant and healthy looking skin. I personally love to exfoliate my skin on a regular basis because it makes my skin so much brighter and smoother. However, I’m really careful with what I use on my face as I don’t want to damage it. There are many ways to exfoliate the skin like physical scrubs and chemical exfoliants like AHA’s and BHA’s for example. Even though they are effective, it is important to be aware of how abrasive they can be to the skin and if it's possibly damaging more than it does your skin well.

Especially when you have sensitive skin, you will want to make sure to use a gentle form of exfoliation. Enzymes are another great and effective form of exfoliation and, at the same time, remain kind and gentle to the skin: perfect for everyday use and for sensitive skin. That is why I incorporated papaya and pineapple enzymes into La Crème Cleanser.

In this blog, I share with you all you need to know about these impressive enzymes.

What are enzymes? Basically, an enzyme is a protein that helps to speed up chemical reactions in our body. Each cell contains thousands of enzymes. In our La Crème Cleanser, I have added enzymes from papaya and pineapple with the purpose to help break down keratin protein in the uppermost layer of the skin. This process gently breaks up dead skin cells, which leads to smoother, healthier looking skin. It also helps to fight pigmentation and breakouts. Enzymes are also a gentler way of exfoliating than, for example, AHA’s, which makes enzyme-based products also a safe option for people with sensitive skin and skin with rosacea.

Papain helps to brighten the skin Papaya enzymes, also known as papain, are derived from the papaya fruit. Papain is a proteolytic enzyme, which means that it breaks down proteins into smaller peptides and amino acids. When used in skincare products, papain works as an exfoliant, gently dissolving dead skin cells and impurities on the skin's surface. This helps to reveal brighter, smoother, and more even-toned skin.

Bromelain unclogs pores Pineapple enzymes, also known as bromelain, are derived from the pineapple fruit. Like papain, bromelain is a proteolytic enzyme that works to break down proteins. In skincare, bromelain acts as a natural exfoliant, helping to remove dead skin cells and unclog pores. Additionally, bromelain has anti-inflammatory properties, making it an excellent ingredient for reducing redness and inflammation in the skin.

A powerful couple When used together in a cleanser, the papaya-pineapple enzyme combination provides a powerful exfoliating effect, whilst simultaneously delivering anti-inflammatory benefits to the skin. By removing dead skin cells and unclogging pores, these enzymes help to prevent breakouts and improve overall skin texture. Additionally, the gentle exfoliation provided by papaya and pineapple enzymes can help to enhance the absorption of other skincare products, such as serums and moisturizers.

La Crème Cleanser By now, it is probably easy to understand why I felt urged to add these enzymes to my latest product, La Crème Cleanser. I really wanted to formulate a cleanser that could exfoliate the skin in a gentle manner, so it could be used for all skin types, including sensitive skin and people with rosacea. Because of its gentle composition, it can be used on a daily basis: each morning and every evening, if desired. If you are looking for a natural way to improve the texture and appearance of your skin, consider integrating a papaya and pineapple enzyme cleanser into your daily routine. I propose you give Comme Ça’s La Crème Cleanser a chance to show you her powerful effectiveness and her soft, caring traits!
