Review: Lucas Papaw Ointment
Lucas Papaw Ointment is a natural remedy from Australia and I was first introduced to this product a few years back by someone from Australia but I didn't pay attention to the product until I finally got to use it back in February when I was doing my make up course. Lucas Papaw was a staple product on the course and we all loved using it especially on ourselves. Its such a great soothing balm for the lips and really nourishes and moisturises it.
The Lucas Papaw Ointment is made from the papaw tree and has antibacterial properties and may be used as a local topical application for burns, boils, chaffing, cuts, cracked skin, rash, splinters, open wounds, insect bites, nappy rash and eczema.
It is also great when used on the lips as I learnt from my make up course. If you have dry lips like I do Lucas Papaw works wonders on them especially as a moisturiser for dry lips before applying lipstick. Simply put a generous amount of it on your lips before you apply your make up and let it sink in for a while and when you are ready to apply your lipstick rub it off and put on your desired lipstick. I have also been using it as a balm as my lips tend to get quite dry in the autumn/winter months and I really cannot fail this product at all.
Lucas Papaw Ointment comes in three sizes 25g, 75g and 200g. I have the 25g as it is a handbag friendly size in comparison to the other sizes available. Active Ingredients: 39mg/gm of fresh fermented paw paw, unguent Carica Papaya L, and 0.1mg/g of Potassium Sorbate as a preservative.
Lucas Papaw Ointment is an Australian brand that is not readily available in the UK but can be bought online from the following:
* The Pawpaw Shop London which have an online store and also an Ebay store. I bought mine from their ebay store for £3.99 (Pawpaw Ebay)
