Lucas' PawPaw Ointment
This does slightly contravene my plight to use mostly natural ingredients, as you can see from the list below it does contain petroleum jelly (slap wrist).
Active Ingredients: The ointment contains 39mg/gm of fresh fermented paw paw, unguent Carica Papaya L, and 0.1mg/g of potassium sorbate as a preservative. petroleum jelly based.
However I forgive you Lucas because your ointment is the absolute DON. There is not another word for it.
I use this on my lips, my nose, my hands as a handcream, my feet and dry heels, cuticles, elbows, bites and stings, crusty cold sores (mm sexy) and any dry or chafed area. It has worked on everyone that I have tried it on and I do regularly try and slap it on people at work and get them hooked on it as well. It has been found that the antiseptic properties of the pawpaw accelerate the healing of wounds which, I assume, is why it is so amazing.
The tube is my preferred packaging as it makes it really easy to apply. In this freezing weather I would rub the tube between my hands before applying otherwise it will solidify slightly and be a bit too difficult to apply.
I have just ordered what will be my fifth tube this year although only my 3rd from http://www.pawpawshop.co.uk who only charge £3.95 for this in it's tube form. A tube lasts me about 3 months if I am not attacking other people with it (which I do tend to do).
This is one of my all time top tips and top beauty products that I recommend. Get in there!
