What is Pawpaw Lip Balm? 

Pawpaw lip balm is a lip care product enriched with extracts from the pawpaw fruit, also known as papaya, it boasts a range of benefits that extend beyond just hydration which make it deserving of a prime spot in your lip care routine.

1. Intense Moisturisation: A Tropical Drink for Your Lips

Pawpaw lip balm is renowned for its exceptional moisturising properties. The papaya extract replenishes moisture to dry and chapped lips, providing a soothing and revitalising effect. The balm forms a protective barrier, sealing in hydration and preventing moisture loss. Dermal Therapy Pawpaw Lip Balm is specially formulated to increase lip moisture and alleviate dryness – so you can kiss dry, uncomfortable lips goodbye.

2. Natural Exfoliation: Say Goodbye to Flakes and Peeling

The enzymes present in pawpaw, such as papain, serve as gentle exfoliants. Regular use of pawpaw lip balm helps remove dead skin cells, promoting smoother, softer lips. The natural exfoliation process aids in preventing flakiness and peeling, leaving your lips supple and ready to face the day.
