More than 100 years ago, Aussie doctor Thomas Lucas started making homeopathic remedies using the antibacterial, antimicrobial papaw fruit this is one of his original products. It can do almost anything, from protecting skin against the elements and healing chapped lips and cuticles to diminishing blemishes and relieving eczema... and it’s also beloved by makeup artists, who keep a tube in their kits to use as a subtle highlighter or to add sheen to lashes and brows.
The ointment temporarily relieves the symptoms of dermatitis and eczema.
Pawpaw has antibacterial and antimicrobial properties and can be used as a local topical application on the following: minor burns & scalds, sunburn, gravel rash, cuts & minor open wounds, nappy rash & chafing, splinters & thorns, and insect bites.
Cult followers: Rose Byrne, Miranda Kerr, and Cate Blanchett
Lucas' Papaw Ointment
My Australian sister-in-law introduced me to this great product. She would send a tube each time a family member came to visit. Since Covid 19 locked down international travel, I've run out of my family's supply. It was great to find a Canadian source! Thank you!
