Lucas PawPaw Ointment



This is another one of the heavy balms I love. Southern hemisphere countries have really good products for dry skin. Pawpaw is similar to papaya. This one comes from Australia but is easy to find on eBay for pretty decent prices. You get different sized pots but I tend to buy smaller ones because the balm lasts so long and tubs can be unhygienic.  The product lasts ages because the open top lets in air as well as, if you don’t use a spatula, bacteria from fingers.

I use this for cuticles, heels, elbows and lips. I also use it if my ears or nose get sunburned. I have used it for many years and it’s always on a ‘re-buy’ list when it gets finished.

  1. I started using this about a year ago, when it became available in the US. It’s the best salve I’ve ever used, and I’ve used many!
