About Lucas Papaw Ointments
Hailing from the Land Down Under, Lucas' Papaw Ointment contains pure Australian papaws. The formula used in the ointment is more than 100 years old and includes a base of petroleum jelly and wax with potassium sorbate added as a preservative, gum balsam peru added as a fragrance, and fermented Carica papaya. The end result is an ointment with antibacterial and antimicrobial properties. Dr. T.P. Lucas researched the papaw and determined it to be a great natural medicine. He used his ointment formula to treat patients with numerous skin conditions. The papaw contains a chemical called papain, which is an antioxidant that is resistant to fungus, fights inflammation, and encourages healing. You can find tubes and small tubs of Lucas' Papaw Ointment among the large inventory on eBay. The ointment is great for chapped skin and lips, sunburns, irritation from insect bites or splinters, chafing, and even diaper rash. Some users apply the papaw ointment to minor wounds to help speed up the healing process, and the product also serves as an everyday skin cream.
