Lucas’ Papaw Ointment has been around for years and has been a household name for Australian families for almost a century.
Lucas’ Papaw Ointment is said to be made from fermented papaya. It is recommended for application on boils, burns, chafing, cuts, cracked skin, gravel rash, splinters, open wounds, insect bites and nappy rash. During winter times, you can rub papaw all over your face for long-lasting moisturised, silky, soft skin. However, papaw may feel too greasy in the months of summer.
Papaw can be put to regular use as a lip balm. This will keep your lips hydrated and supple without allowing them to dry out. There are many other ways you can use Lucas’ Papaw Ointment. If you catch a cold and end up with a red and sore nose then dab some papaw around your nose and leave it on overnight, discover a well-nourished skin around the nostrils the very next day. If you find yourself getting rough skin every time you wash your hands then massage onto your skin some papaw. Your hands will feel smooth and soft.
Lucas’ Papaw Ointment comes in various shapes and sizes, including tubes and tubs. The smallest one is usually 25g and you can get up to 200g. Prices start from $5 and range upto $22. However, constant vigilance can score you some lucrative bargains from time to time. This terrific beauty aid can be obtained from most of the departmental stores as well as pharmacies.
There are several other companies that make papaw products but Lucas’ Papaw Ointment continue to be my favourite beauty aid. The tubs are good for the whole family while the tubes are more suitable for personal usages. The light-weight nature of the Lucas’ Papaw Ointment tube facilitates carrying around in your bag for easy access to the papaw, anytime and anywhere.
Some people voice that Lucas’ Papaw Ointment is a glorified version of Vaseline but after years of familiarity with this wonderful product have convinced me that Lucas’ Papaw Ointment is more than just Vaseline and certainly more effective than any form of petroleum jelly.
And the best part is this product is that it is made in Australia. So if you have not yet tried Lucas’ Papaw Ointment then it is high time you take this wonderful beauty product for a test drive.
