    Introduction: Face cream is a cosmetic cream applied to the face to improve the complexion. The expired face cream will cause irritation, and it will not be effective. The papaya extract has the property of antibacterial, antimicrobial and it gives effective fairness. Antibacterial activity is an activity that destroys bacteria or suppresses their growth or their ability to reproduce. In this study, we are going to find the comparative antibacterial activity of the new face cream, expired face cream, and papaya extract. Materials and Methods: Collection and preparation of new face cream, expired face cream, and papaya extract were used. To study the antibacterial activity of new face cream, expired face cream, and papaya extract against the skin pathogens such as Staphylococcus aureus and Escherichia coli using Agar wells diffusion method. Result: The present study shows the highest zone of inhibition for the papaya extract and thus its more effective then the other two creams, in which the E. coli has got the highest value than the S. aureus. Thus, papaya extract is more resistant to the skin pathogens and it can be used as the face cream or face wash. Conclusion: This study shows that the papaya extract is more resistant to the skin pathogens and it can be used as the face cream or face wash. It acts as the antibacterial agent against the skin pathogens, thus it resists the irritation to the skin and gives effective fairness and shinning to the face.
