(I don't know why this ointment 25g's one is cheaper than the 15g's. Pricing error?)

    If the brand isn't important, they are $2 at Aldi.

    "Ladies must love it."

    It doesn't seem to be recommended to use it down there. "Natural oils (such as sweet almond or avocado oil) may help, but some oils and creams (such as tea-tree oil and paw-paw ointment) can cause contact dermatitis, increasing itchiness and discomfort."

    Take bulk vaseline
    Mix in tiny bit paw paw
    Flash container and charge a motsa
    Profit

    I seem to recall this being the case for Lucas.

      4% papaw apparently. Though it is fermented….

      That's the model for every skin care product, it just depends whether your bullshit meter is triggered by "fruit is good" or "cellulose is good" or "miracle ingredient is good".

      After the product is applied the skin looks better through a purely cosmetic effect. You can achieve a same/better result by dabbing vegetable oil onto the skin although that hasn't got the same image created by moving images that have bypassed the brain's logic capacity.

      Take sugar, and a bit of colouring, add Co2 with water and you can make a drink.

      Doesnt mean its the same….

    Why will only ladies love it ? This is an excellent solution to mozzy bites and other insect bites.

    As a lady I hate it. It dried out my lips so that I kept using it to keep them chapped. Stopped using it and lips were good again.

    why would you put ointment on your papaw?

      If it has dried lips. I assume pawpaw is the same euphemism kahn and jjjiaar are discussing one post above. Im hoping youre not referring to your mawmaws husband, pawpaw. That would be creepy.

    Works well for some eczema on the kids so not a bad product at all. Then again it does nothing for some so it's a bit of a hit and miss, it's way overpriced usually though imho.

  •  

    Generic brand also available at Chemist Warehouse - 2 x 25gr tubes for $5.00

    Active ingredient strangely enough is…… Paw Paw :)

  •  

    Can't seem to find the 25g online?

  •  

    Lucas Papaw, should have patented and trade-marked the shit out of his product. So many knock-offs with very similar packaging.

  •  

    Just came back from BigW Highpoint. All sold out. Home delivery costs $9.90.

    So many people are convinced this product is the holy grail, when the fact is this is simply petroleum jelly with pawpaw waved over it. Do your research and try to buy one with better base ingredient/s, even if (shock!) it costs more.

      so what if only 4% paw paw, if it works it works! my lips never dry out with this and its non greasy. works on dry skin, eczema and sun burn too :)

        A tub of generic vaseline would be just as effective at a fraction of the cost.

        •  

          ive triwed Vaseline and its not. it is way oilier and doesn't moisturise as much. just oils then evaporates. also tastes funny and melts into much more liquidy mush than paw paw in the summer

  •  

    Coles and W also have a different brand with no vas/petroleum jelly.
    GF found it better than this…

  •  

    interesting is the traditional use of pawpaw as a spermicide, a natural contraceptive…
    this stuff is great for initial treatment of nicks and cuts, but i find repeated use slows healing…

    Good deal!
    I recently signed up to priceline and was given a $5 voucher for signing up, then another later another for my birthday. They have a few different pawpaw ointments, but if I recall, they have this brand for $4.99 at the Hyperdome in Canberra, unsure about other stores.
    Can't remember how large the tube is, but free beats discounted.

  •  

    Good price.
    Don't get the Aldi one if you plan on putting this in your nose.
    Sometimes i would put too much and then it would go to the back of the throat and really burn.

  •  

    Others have said it here, this is just Vaseline with a drop of pawpaw, but it works wonders on skin.
