Likas Papaya Soap Reviews
Likas Papaya Soap is an organic and herbal soap that promises to lighten the color of the skin. It is a local product from the Philippines, and is the first one to hit the market using papaya as the main whitening ingredient.
Papaya has been copied by numerous products but still remains the top selling papaya whitening soap in the Philippines. It has recently just made waves around the world and is now available in other countries in Asia, the United States and several countries in Europe. It also promises to eliminate acne on the skin, lighten pigmentation and dark marks such as acne marks, freckles, sun spots and the like.
Likas Papaya Soap Ingredients and How Does It Work?
Likas Papaya Skin Whitening Soap is made from 100% organic herbs. The most potent component is of course papain extract, which is one of the most popular natural whitening components known to man. Papain extract is basically a natural enzyme that promotes rapid skin cell renewal and turnover of cells. Thus, it is very effective in the exfoliation of dead skin cells. Papain also has restorative properties on the skin.
It also contains other herbal ingredients that keep the skin moisturized and smooth. Likas papaya promises to lighten skin in as little as two weeks. It also promises to effectively fight mild acne and eliminate dark marks or hyperpigmentation left by acne.
The product should be used on the body and on the face every day in replacement of the usual facial wash and body soap. Likas papaya should be lathered on the skin for at least three to five minutes daily before it is washed off.
One good thing about Likas Papaya Skin Whitening soap is that it uses all natural ingredients. It does not contain hydroquinone or any artificial bleaching agent. At the same time, the soap is very affordable, as it simply costs around $3 – 5 per 135 grams of soap. This orange soap has a very mild smell that plenty of people love. It is also available online, and from a variety of Chinese, Filipino or Asian specialty stores.
While Likas papaya does enhance the skin’s appearance within several weeks of use, the results are simply minimal. Users who have expected dramatic skin lightening have certainly ended up disappointed. While some people have experienced an improvement on the way they look, numerous users who have used the product have complained about not experiencing any results at all – even after using the product for several months.
While it may lighten the overall appearance of the skin, the soap may have a hard time eliminating marks where melanin is concentrated. This includes sun spots, hyperpigmentation marks and the like. Some users have also experienced tightening of the skin and mild skin peeling or dryness, while some have experienced acne outbreaks.
There have been no reported side effects of the product. However, it is recommended to do a patch test or a skin test in order to rule out any allergic reactions.
Likas Papaya Soap Conclusion
The Likas Papaya Skin Whitening Soap promises to whiten the skin, however, the effects of the product fall short of its promises. Plenty of users have been left disappointed because of the product’s failure to deliver its promise.
At its best, Likas Papaya is cheap and easy to use, but then again, it is a complete waste of time, especially if it is the only product relied on for skin whitening. While it may be a good supplement for any whitening treatment, it cannot be relied alone to whiten the skin or the body.
