Pass The Papaya

by The Zoe Report

Here at Team Zoe, we love when shopping and charity come together in sweet harmony. Adding another asset to our cosmetic repertoire while taking part in a philanthropic cause? Don’t mind if we do! That’s why we’re gushing over Elemis’ Papaya Enzyme Peel—an award-winning classic recently revamped by British artist, Laura Oakes, for the product’s tenth anniversary!

For each peel sold, Elemis ensures that a child in Africa will receive a vaccination against the five leading African diseases, thanks to their partnership with non-profit organization SOCO. And if that charitable promise doesn’t already have you sold, its skin-renewing benefits surely will! The beauty brew uses the natural fruit enzyme, papain, extracted from papaya and pineapple, to gently dissolve superficial dead skin cells. The natural exfoliator smooths and repairs skin while brightening and clarifying the complexion. A radiant visage and a charitable cause? Pass the papaya, please.

Availability: Elemis Papaya Enzyme Peel ($42). For additional information, visit Elemis.com.
