“The fermentation process concentrates the powerful enzymes found in papaws. Hundreds of papaws are used to make one batch of concentrate. The fresh fermented concentrate cannot be applied directly to the skin. The concentrate must be distibuted within the carrier (petroleum jelly) to achieve the correct concentration for safe and effective application to the skin. It is the same as a pain relief tablet where a small amount of paracetamol (active ingredient) is contained in each tablet (carrier).”
“Lucas’ Papaw Ointment is ideal for lips if you want to help heal or sooth inflamed, chapped or broken skin.”
“Lucas’ Papaw Ointment helps skin retain its own moisture which stops it from drying out. But the main benefits are the healing qualities of the product. It has no added moisturisers.”
“Lucas’ Papaw Ointment only uses pharmaceutical grade petroleum jelly that is strictly certified to ensure its safety and quality. USP grade Petrolatums are not mutagenic or toxic.
Petroleum jelly is the “carrier” that supports the active ingredient – fresh fermented papaw. Petroleum jelly does not block pores, is not carcinogenic or toxic. It has been affirmed to be non-comedogenic (does not block pores) and to not cause allergic reactions (American Academy of Dermatology Invitational on Comedogenicity, 1989)
More information and scientific studies about petroleum jelly can be found in many places online. Here are a few links for your further information:
