Lucas’ Papaw Ointment has been produced in Queensland for over 102 years. While there are now quite a few products that are trying to copy the effectiveness of the Lucas’ product, some even using the same packaging colours, Lucas’ Papaw Ointment continues to be the consumer’s choice in both pharmacies and grocery shops. “It is because it really works” said Lynette. “We are unique in that we use locally grown freshly fermented papaw, not processed papaw powders or extracts”. Long term users of Lucas’ Papaw Ointment agree that it is the fresh fermented papaw, all hand prepared in their premises in Brisbane, that is the secret to the success of the product.
Lucas’ Papaw Ointment has a long history of effectiveness. It was developed by Doctor Lucas through careful research over many years. “He believed the papaw plant has amazing healing properties”, said Kevin Talbot, the great grandson of Dr Lucas and owner of Lucas’ Papaw Remedies. “He formulated what he believed were the precise proportions in the remedy to assist the skin to heal while avoiding skin damage from excessive concentrations of the powerful enzymes in papaws”. “With potent enzymes like those found in papaws, it is not just a matter of more is better”.
Well the proof is in the popularity of Lucas’ Papaw Ointment which continues to help people of all ages with uses that vary from chaffed lips, insect bites, minor wounds and scratches through to nappy rash.
Lucas’ Papaw Ointment now comes in a new 15gm tube with a lip applicator. “We’ve been asked to add a lip applicator for the last few years and we’ve finally done it” said Lynette Swinglehurst, the manager of Lucas’ Papaw Remedies. “We are also continually asked to put it into a smaller tube so that it fits more easily into pockets and small handbags. So we think this 15gm tube with lip applicator really hits the mark”.
