Q: Will my skin get worse before it gets better?

A: One use of PapayaActivs is to purify, soothe and rejuvenate the appearance of the skin. However, in some cases it is not uncommon for the skin to get worse before it gets better. This can occur for 2-3 days and our feedback suggests that if you continue to apply our products improvement may occur after that time. You should discontinue use if irritation persists. Please remember to patch test prior to full application.


Q: What should I do if I develop a skin reaction?

A: As we use active natural ingredients, initially the troubled area may become aggravated, which is often an indication that the products are working. A mild tingling or a skin change may occur on application.

One of the benefits of our products is that they purify, soothe and rejuvenate the appearance of the skin. In some cases your skin may initially become red as toxins may be drawn to the surface and expelled by the body. A skin irritation may also occur if you have applied an excessive amount of the cream rather than a thin film.

Our experience is that any irritation should clear within 2-3 days. Discontinue use if irritation persists. Please remember to always patch test prior to full application.
