Chapped lips, bites, cuts, burns, grazes...Lucas' pawpaw ointment helps sooth and heal quickly and effectively. I always have a tub in the bathroom and a tube in my handbag within easy reach at all times
Great Product - needs different packaging
LOVE this product - it works!!!
It helps heal and it protects from wind
Would be great to have it more like a (lip) stick sort of format...to apply more easily.
Don't change the recipe - because it has worked so well for years Thankyou
Why this ointment is good,
People that are against this ointment have most likely never experienced debilitating wounds, probably believe what they see on the tv screen and cant get past the word petroleum. Papaya fruit is rich in nutrition which is a requisite for biological healing. Pawpaw fruit is high in vitamin c and has antioxidants. Paraffin not Petroleum is the carrier for the fermented fruit. This jelly will not destroy your skin but it will stick to you which is great if you want to have that fruit sticking to your wound.
If you are scared that this is blockin...
The deep cracks around my mouth are finally healing up!!!
I bought a 75g tub of Lucas' Pawpaw Ointment for the first time this week. I've known about it for a long time, & its only now I decided to give it a go. I wish I had of bought it 7 years ago when I was first diagnosed with an auto immune disorder by my dentist called Sjogren's Syndrome. It leaves me with absolutely no saliva, & a mouth so dry that the corners of my mouth constantly have big, deep cracks which not only look red & unsightly, they are extremely painful as well.
I've tried pretty much every lip balm on the market & they do an "o...k" job in that they keep my mouth moist for a short time, but they don't heal up the cracks. Major relief has come to me this week with Lucas Pawpaw ointment. Hallelujah!!!! I've only been using it about 3 times a day for the last 4 days, but in this short time, I can see that the cracks around my mouth are slowly beginning to close up nicely. I can't quite believe it!!!! It is truly amazing!!!! For the first time in 7 years, I am finally getting some relief for my painful mouth. My dry mouth has also caused tiny painful blister thingies in the soft tissues inside the bottom lip. By using my Lucas Pawpaw ointment as a lip balm, the blisters are beginning to heal as well. I'm so thrilled, I could cry tears of joy!!!! I can't speak highly enough of this product. I urge anyone who is suffering with pain from any sort of skin problem, to give Lucas Pawpaw a try. You have nothing to lose, & everything to gain.
Really bad reaction. Caused painful pimply rash.
I recently used this stuff for aftercare of a tattoo and it did not go well at all.
After the first session I used this ointment and while at first it seemed to do an admirable job after a day of use I developed sever pimply rash all over my arm. I wrote this off as an isolated incident or perhaps just a reaction to the ink used and didn't think more about it.
That was until after the 2nd session where using this ointment caused the exact same raised, bumpy pimply rash. More the rash broke out in areas above the tattoo where it had been appli...ed so it was definitely caused by this product rather than a reaction to the ink or tattooing process. This was finally confirmed when I switched to a different product for aftercare following the 3rd and 4th sessions and had no repeated outbreaks. I'm not saying this product isn't good or effective only that it CAN cause a pretty severe reaction in some people so be very wary and discontinue immediately if it does.
Classic beauty staple
I use papaw as a lip balm. Most other lip balms have colours, smells and funny tastes, but Lucas' is simply good for hydrating the lips. I have multiple tubes that I keep around so I that I always have some on hand.
Purchased in January 2019.
A good and Gentle product
I have been recommended by the GP to apply this for my daughter's lip.
It really works well on her dry lips and fully recommended it to friends who would like to have a natural/ organic based of ointment.
Purchased in December 2018 for $3.00.
Can't live without this!
I've been using Lucas' Papaw Ointment for many years now. My three adult daughters have also been using it since their teen years. It's great for dry chaffed lips, is convenient to carry around, and helps manage my, mild but irritating, dermatitis on my fingers. It's also great on dry skin patches on the body and insect bites and irritation. It helps soothe and heal better than any other product I've tried. Years ago, Vaseline was the go to product for these issues, but I much prefer Lucas' Papaw Ointment. I often have dry bits of skin around m...y nails, as do my daughters, and I find this help with that issue. I have about 7 tubes of this amazing product all over the house; in my handbag, on my computer desk, and in every room in the house. The price of this ointment is very affordable and I can't praise it enough - it is worth every cent!
Purchased in June 2000 at Target for $5.99.
Soothing & wonderful, but not good if hoping will fight infection
I love this for soothing and helping heal scratches/minor wounds, skin irritation, and bites/stings. From my experience don't use this if the area is starting to get a little infected - I've found on more than one occasion not at all effective in fighting the infection (tip: colloidal silver cream is excellent for that - a natural antibiotic & works great on say a scratch or cactus spine puncture that's red & inflamed). I also found Papaw did not soothe minor burns (& with the high petroleum jelly component prob isn't a good idea to use it on burns) but I would still always have some on hand - for eg best thing I've found for fresh cat scratches. :)
Best ointment for rashes and skin hydration without a doubt
I cannot praise this ointment enough. It has the best healing and hydration properties I have come across. For nappy rash or sweat rash this clears it up and heals the skin. Also, to keep your skin plump and hydrated, after your shower, put an amount about the size of a pea in your hands, blend it through your hands and rub it all over you face and neck. Over a period of an hour or so it will soak into your dry area's of skin and sit on top where it is lest needed. keep rubbing back into you whole face and neck until it all absorbs. This hel...ps keeps your skin soft, hydrated and I believe helps prevent fine lines. I use this ever day and everyone always complements me on my skin. Give it a try you will love it. Don't spend a fortune on expensive creams, this works and also prevents chapped lips, I love it !!!
Introduced when I was breastfeeding
My sister gave me a pot of Lucas Pawpaw Ointment almost 20 years ago when I was still in hospital after the birth of my daughter.
She suggested I use it on my sore nipples. It worked a treat and I’ve used it ever since for itches, dry skin and lips.
Would recommend to anyone and especially like having a handy tube in my handbag.

Questions & Answers
Can you use pawpaw ointment on cracked corns
Hi Brian. Try it & see. You have nothing to lose, & everything to gain. It worked on the deep, painful cracks on the corners of my mouth, due to my auto immune disorder. I haven't had to put up with the cracks ever since. It is wonderful.
As well as using pawpaw ointment on your corns, try using goat soap when you shower. I've found the goat soap seems to have healing properties in it, & is much better than the other soaps that are full of chemicals & additives. I don't use any other soap now. Only goat soap. Any brand of goat soap is as good as another, I think.
Good luck :) I hope my suggestions help you.
