Dry Lips, Cuts, Grazes, Nappy rashes - it's a No-Brainer
What It Does:
As a healthcare professional for over 20 years and a father of 2, Paw Paw Ointment is my go-to lip balm, delivering lasting hydration and protection for all of us. With a fragrance-free, tasteless formula, it extends beyond lip care, serving as a versatile solution for cuts, grazes, and even nappy rashes.
- It's got a thick consistency (but NOT sticky) which is good for dryness and cracking of lips and skin.
- I use it for cuts and grazes to protect against the elements.
- It comes in small and sufficient container sizes, user-friendly
- fragrance-free and tasteless for a pleasant experience

BURNING OF SKIN
I used this product on my face and it was red and sore next day. Main ingredient is petroleum jelly so avoided it as this is not a natural product. Petroleum based product which should not be absorbed on skin.... Read more

My holy grail product I can't live without
This product is the only product I will use as lip balm because it's keeps my lips soft and hydrated all day. It is fragrance free and also tasteless. It's thick and does a fantastic job of protecting my lips from cracking. It's non sticky and can also be used for cuts and grazes so it's not only a lip balm. I also use this on nappy rashes on my toddler and also it's a fantastic heel balm. It's a fantastic hydrator and protector with many uses.... Read more
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.
An ointment for everything
Have been using this stuff for years. Firstly just as a lip balm but progressively have tried it for various other skin issues (rashes, chafing, bug bites, burns). The thing I’m most impressed about is it’s ability to resolve mozzie bites though (at least for me). I have sensitive skin and also attract mosquitoes like crazy and develop bad reactions to their bites. What I find is as long as I put the ointment on early enough (within the hour or so), it works wonders and not only does it relief the itch but the next day they’re gone. However, i... Read moref I leave things too late like I’m lazy and don’t put it on until a few days later, then It doesn’t work as well and I have to resort to stronger things eg cortisone creams or anti histamines. Always have a tube or tube lying around the house and in my bag.
Only ointment that we have found that doesn’t sting
Faster healing and nice relief on cuts, burns and scraps. The kids will only allow this on them when hurt as it doesn’t sting haven’t really noticed any scarring difference... Read more

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.... Read more
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.... Read more
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.... Read more

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 !
Can the ointment ube used for inner thiggs rash?
