Petrolatum with pawpaw washing

Marketed as pawpaw ointment but if you check the ingredients that is minimal. It is almost all petrolatum. I avoid petrolatum but many like it.
You can get petrolatum, probably in a less irritating iteration by just buying petrolatum jelly/ Vaseline.

Questions & Answers

Is this the same Papaw Ointment recalled by the TGA over microbial contamination?

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 !

  • Lucas’ Papaw Ointment has a number of different uses. For many people, it’s used to soothe chapped and dry lips. However, it has other benefits for the skin, including soothing inflamed skin, cuts and minor open wounds, or skin affected by thorns, splinters, minor burns and scalds or gravel rash.
  • This ointment can also be used to treat nappy rash, help heal chafing and grazing caused by sports injuries, and provide relief from mosquito bites.
  • Apart from papaw, the ingredients of Lucas’ Papaw Ointment also contain 0.1mg/g of potassium sorbate as a preservative, as well as gum balsam peru as a perfume.
  • This multi-purpose ointment is available in 3 tube sizes; 15g, 25g or 75g; or in a 200g tub.

Points of praise

  • Reviewers mainly hailed Lucas' Papaw Ointment as a reliable product to soothe dry, cracked skin when nothing else did the job. This was particularly appreciated during the winter months. Several reviewers even bought multiple tubs or tubes to keep them in different rooms in the house, or in their car.
  • This ointment helped with healing minor cuts and burns, which provided much-needed relief for reviewers.
  • Many reviewers had sensitive skin, and reported that this naturally-based product didn’t irritate their skin or make them uncomfortable.
  • Lucas' Papaw Ointment is believed to be good value for money; especially the larger $20 tub.

Points to consider

  • While the majority of reviewers loved Lucas’ Pawpaw Ointment, there were some who couldn’t understand the praise. Some people found the formula too sticky or greasy, with not enough pawpaw in it. Others found that it simply didn’t work, or left lips feeling chapped. A small number of reviewers experienced allergic reactions.
