Must have product for me
I have been using it for years. A good and inexpensive product. great for burns, rash, small cuts and heal well and fast. I have it handy all the time.
A True Aussie product ...
Have been using this wonderful, all Australian product for over 6 years. Thank you !
Originally, it was 2x 200gr weekly but now have graduated to just 2 x 75gr jars. I think every car and fridge should have at least 1 jar on hand.
I have a chronic wound which heals completely from time to time but in the meantime, there are no nasties in LPP that can irritate sensitive skin .

Dry and cracked lips
Every hayfever season I get dry cracked lips, especially in the corners of my mouth that become painful. This is the only thing that worked to cure and prevent it. Literally within an hour of putting it on I could feel the lips starting to reduce in the burning sensation. Within a few days I was almost back to normal. Before that I used Nivea and one called Carmex but neither did anything. I don't know how this stuff works but it is amazing. I now bought the large jar which was about $20 something as it is better value. I'm not sure what else I will use it for but am glad I have it handy.

Best lip balm
My favourite lip balm, I have been using it for years. I use it daily and think it's great for hydrating lips. Prefer it in the tube rather than the tub.
My Winter Staple
I have used other Papaw ointments before but have recently had extremely dry and cracked lips. I decided to purchase this product to try and see if would be better than the other branded versions of papaw ointments. This product has helped to heal my lips and prevent my lips from cracking and chapping. I have since repurchased this product to keep at home and in different bags. Only con is when I have coated my lips that sometimes it can leave and spread a little greasy/oily residue further down on my chin and upper lip but a quick swipe of a tissue will clear this.

Good product! Cheap but useful
I saw a lot people recommended it online. It says good for damaged skin like dry lip or hand. I bought one for my mom. Her hands always become dry at winter. I asked my mom to use it daily. After a few weeks, she said not bad...it makes hands smooth a bit. But it's oily for her.

My staple beauty product that I don’t go anywhere without. This product moisturizes without being greasy, saving my chapped lips and fixing dry skin on my face, hands and elbows.
Purchased in January 2000 at Coles for $5.00.
It’s not very effective for already dry lips and it dries up too quickly without moisturising your lips. I’ve used other pure paw paw ointments that work much better and this one just seems to have too many other chemicals in it and it doesn’t give any sort of protective barrier or moisture. Would never buy again.

Staple part of my make up kit
Love love love this product, I have ben using for years, I use it for almost everything. This was a life saver when I was sick too, is great for sores and burns.
Purchased in January 2000 at Coles for $599.00.
Love this stuff, I have sensitive lips and this helps alot. Tried other products and they irritate my lips. Plus this product smells nice. Also helps with irritated skin, like burns.
a staple part of my makeup pouch for 5 years
I didn't knew I would love a product this much but this ointment is an exception. I have chapped and flaky lips and everytime I exfoliate, I use this. This makes my lips look and feel better.

Love it on my face!
I don’t use this on my lips, but this has been a staple in my beauty routine for at least 10 years. Sometimes the skin on my face can feel dull, lifeless and dry and I put this on overnight and the next morning it feels so smooth, fresh and plumper. I have never sensitive skin but this has never made me break into pimples. Definitely recommend for adults and kids too.
Healed divers in sons arm and thigh after black run mountain bike crash at Derby, Sealed the holes with the ointment and covered with non stick bandage,cleaned every day with baby wipes, new ointment and new non stick bandage, the paw paw ointment kept the deep wound infection free,and healed in leaps and bounds,O recomend this for everyone,
Purchased for $4.00.
Use as required to soothe upset or damaged skin
Lucas Pawpaw Ointment has antibacterial and antimicrobial properties and can be used as a local topical application on a range of skin issues, like minor burns, sunburn, gravel rash, insect bites, chafing and grazes.
Many users of the ointment also report temporary relief of the symptoms of dermatitis and eczema. With so many uses and applications, it is always great to have a red tube of Lucas' Pawpaw Ointment handy in the home
Ideal for minor, burns, scalds and sunburn...
Can't stand the taste. Melts off like petroleum jelly. What's all the fuss for?!
Seriously I can't understand the fuss with the Lucas' Pawpaw Ointment. It keeps being recommended to me as a lip balm by chemist staff and consumers alike but I think they've got rocks in their head. There's hardly any pawpaw in it for crying out loud, it tastes awful and it melts off in no time like petroleum jelly. I much prefer the Nivea lip balms which stay on, stay soft and moist without melting off, and are not offensive to taste if your tongue makes contact. Won't be going down the Lucas' Pawpaw Ointment road again.
Questions & Answers
Can I use Lucas paw paw on my cat ? She has been wearing a soft cone for months now after she had a large cut on her back and was in the vet for nearly a month. She came home with just a tiny cut left and every time it scabs over she can just get her foot under the cone far enough to itch and rip off the scab. It’s not infected. I just thought maybe the paw paw would take the some of the itch away but not sure if safe to use on my cat.. and she can finally fully heal !
I just found my answer on justanswer.cat website and the answer from a qualified vet was that yes paw paw is fine to use on cats as is non toxic and can help a bit! So thought I’d answer my own question incase this helps anyone else in the future !
Can the ointment ube used for inner thiggs rash?
Could please tell me if Lucas ointment is good to be used for itchy testicles. Thank you
