crushed papaya

G'day,

I was wondering about curryboy's soap. Has anybody tried crushing some papaya and using it as a mask? would it work the same way as the soap?

I actually take a fresh papaya and just rub a slice over my face. I don't believe this is as powerful as curryboy's soap but I figure it can't hurt? Not too sure it really works though, lol, but Scorpion_Vixen makes a mask with fresh papaya and pumpkin which she loves.....

I haven't done it but I seem to remember that green papaya has the hightest concentration of the papain enzympe. Just an FYI.

I think it was green unripe papayas that have the strongest concentration of papain. You gotta pick them when they are still young.
