Paw paw ointment was made famous when Lucas Paw Paw launched its iconic formulation, but these days, plenty of brands have their own version on shelves. And the best part is that these ointments can be used in so many different ways.
We love the Nature’s Care Paw Paw Balm. A 100 per cent Australian brand, this ointment is made with real paw paw seed oil as well as super-nourishing beeswax, sunflower seed oil and vitamin E. It’s perfect for moisturising your lips, hands and body.
