Product Description
About Lucas' Papaw Ointment Lip Balm

More than 100 years ago, Aussie doctor Thomas Lucas started making homeopathic remedies using the antibacterial, antimicrobial papaw fruit (aka Carica papaya)?athis is one of his original products. It can do almost anything, from protecting skin against the elements and healing chapped lips and cuticles to diminishing blemishes and relieving eczema. And it?¡¥s also beloved by makeup artists, who keep a tube in their kits to use as a subtle highlighter or to add sheen lashes and brows.

In an interview with Brisbane Times, Kevin Talbot, fourth-generation Lucas manufacturer, said, ?¡ãLucas?¡¥ Papaw has more than a cult following now; everyone wants it.?¡À Rose Byrne, Miranda Kerr, and Cate Blanchett all swear by it. ?¡ãIt just works,?¡À said Talbot.

The ingredients include fermented papaw fruit and pharmaceutical-grade petroleum (a milder and non-comedogenic form of the petroleum found in, say, Vaseline). The consistency is similar to most petroleum products, with a slightly milky smell that?¡¥s not at all unpleasant.

Why It?¡¥s Special
  • The ointment temporarily relieves the symptoms of dermatitis and eczema.
  • The ointment has antibacterial and antimicrobial properties and can be used as a local topical application on the following: minor burns & scalds, sunburn, gravel rash, cuts & minor open wounds, nappy rash & chafing, splinters & thorns, and insect bites.
Key Ingredients
  • Carica Papaya 39 mg Fresh Fermented Fruit: The papaya is grown fresh in Queensland and is hand-selected to be fermented to make the ointment. The finished product contains 0.1 mg/g of Potassium Sorbate which acts as a preservative.
  • Pharmaceutical Grade Petroleum Jelly and Wax: It is a pharmaceutical grade base that is tested and screened for the level of total polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons. Penreco USP grade Petrolatums are not mutagenic or toxic to reproduction.
