What does the product description say?
"Papaya, which contains papain, a naturally occurring enzyme, is a base for organic makeup and has been used in tropical medicine to prevent adhesions and dissolve dead skin cells."
WIMJ summary

This product does not contain effective exfoliating ingredients. It might be able to deliver physical exfoliation, that is scrub off some of the dead cells on the surface of the skin. We do not recommend physical exfoliation, because it is not uniform (some bits of skin can get exfoliated too much while others not at all). It can also traumatize the skin and aggrevate acne and other skin conditions.

What does the product description say?
"Nubian Heritage's Coconut Papaya Lotion is a nutrient-rich sweet-scented body moisturizer, created from their original blend of pure Shea Butter, Aloe Vera, Vitamin D, softening Coconut Oil and vitamin-rich Papaya, provides superior, last hydration."
WIMJ summary

This product can help improve hydration of the skin with the two types of ingredients.

The first type is called “humectants”:
these ingredients help attract water. When humectants are on the surface of the skin, they “pull in” the moisture from the outside environment, or from within deeper layers of the skin. The following ingredients in this product do the job: allantoin, glycerin.

This product also contains ingredients called “occlusives”. They help reduce the speed with which our skin loses moisture to the outside environment. These ingredients also help soften the upper layer of the skin, so it feels less tight and nicer to the touch. The following ingredients in this product do the job: butyrospermum parkii butter, caprylic/capric triglyceride.
