Picture shows front and back of product (there are no real ingredients listed but it has a list of uses).
Lucas Pawpaw Ointment is a creamy textured substance of an oily consistency made of fermented pawpaw. It is meant to be used as a moisturiser and is 'multi purpose' - it can be used basically anywhere on the body. The ointment comes in two forms; a tube with a screw cap and a large pot with a screw cap. The tube cost something like $2 and the pot at around $8.
This is the tube opening. Not very fancy, just a simple hole...
Simply unscrew the lid and squeeze the tube. The tube is preferred to give a controlled amount of product. Apply anywhere on the body, most suitable for particularly dry areas of skin and on the lips. On the skin you may need to rub it in for half a minute to help absorption, and applying before bed and covering the area is an easy way to get good results the next morning. With the pot, it is better for using on large areas but is bit unhygienic as you have to dip your hand in.

Well I need to get this straight! This is just like petroleum jelly AKA Vaseline. It might be made of different ingredients but it acts exactly the same (there isn't a full list of ingredients which is concerning) - that it moisturises and protects. It is better than Vaseline in that it doesn't have a strong smell and it isn't a petrol by product...but other than that it's nothing special. It is NOT a sophisticated moisturiser, it sits on top of your skin, is very, VERY slow to absorb and can be uncomfortable to wear because of this. It is good for all the uses that Vaseline is used: moisturising, lip gloss, lip gloss base, overnight cream, to soften skin; and it's a similar price.
Between Vaseline and Lucas Pawpaw Ointment, Lucas Pawpaw Ointment wins by a small margin.
But between Lucas Pawpaw Ointment and other moisturises and lip products, it's not a winner.
So, would I buy this again?
Short answer, NO! I can see it as a replacement for vaseline and used before I go to bed for my lips and feet as well as being cheap but I wouldn't go crazy for it, neither would it satisfy a lot of skin needs that need particular types of moisturisers.
Sorry I haven't been on in ages but I've been busy (yes, the usual excuse).
