Ever had chapped or dry skin? It's time to harness the power of paw paw!
A recent study has revealed a significant portion of the population is grappling with various skincare issues brought on by Australia's harsh summer elements.
The study, commissioned by Lucas’ Papaw Remedies, found that 44% of Aussies had experienced dry, cracked, or irritated skin, while 35% have suffered from insect bites or stings.
Alarmingly, 53% of Australians have recently had minor burns due to sun exposure or other factors.
Summertime activities often take us outdoors, exposing our skin to sun, wind, insects, and potential accidents
These environmental factors can wreak havoc on our skin, leaving it in desperate need of soothing remedies.
Enter Lucas Pawpaw Remedies: a Brisbane company created more than 110 years ago with a successful formula still used today.
Lucas’ Papaw Ointment is named after the formulator of the ointment Dr T.P. Lucas. Dr Lucas, after years of research as a botanist and medical practitioner, said in his 1906 handbook that he believed the papaw was the finest natural medicine yet discovered.
He used the ointment, which he developed for his medical practice in Brisbane, to treat numerous types of illness and disease.
And people today can derive the same benefits that thousands derived during the lifetime of T.P. Lucas.
Lucas’ Papaw Ointment, Australia’s original multipurpose ointment, harnesses the power of fermented papaw to combat these common summer ailments.
This versatile ointment is strong enough to alleviate discomfort but gentle enough for use on the delicate skin of a newborn. It's truly a product that the entire family can use and love.
The key ingredient in Lucas' Papaw Ointment is fermented papaw, a fruit rich in essential vitamins and minerals such as Vitamin A, C, and E, as well as iron, potassium, and magnesium.
When applied topically, the papaw acts as a natural remedy to soothe the skin.
Moreover, the ointment's unique formula boasts antibacterial and antimicrobial properties and healing enzymes, working in tandem to restore affected areas and provide long-lasting relief.
