Jan Marini Enzyme LineScientifically Effective Supplemental Exfoliation at Home
Proteolytic enzymes are the most scientifically sensible and effective method to accomplish supplemental exfoliation at home. Simply defined, the term "proteolytic" refers to an enzymatic reaction that can digest dead or diseased protein material without harming living healthy cells. Unlike abrasive scrubs or other mechanical methods, proteolytic enzymes are selective and therefore the patient is less likely to cause irritation from pressure or over manipulation.
A commonly used proteolytic enzyme is papain, often found in tropical fruits such as papaya. The most potent form of papain exists in green unripened papaya. As the papaya ripens, the enzyme activity declines considerably. In fact, green papaya can be 50 to 100 times stronger than other forms of papain.
Until now, green papaya could never be harvested and formulated in a manner that would maintain the essential activity.
