My Desert Island Product - PURE Papaya Ointment

PURE Papaya Ointment
I have mentioned this before but my hero ingredient is Papaya (also known as Paw Paw). My previously wrote about my favourite brand Simmons which I had used for a number of years but sadly it is no longer manufactured. About two or three months ago I switched to Pure Papaya Ointment. Coincidentally, my blog post “Why you should not use petroleum jelly” caught the attention of Pure Papaya and they contacted me regarding a review, not realising I was already using their ointment. Recently I've seen a lot of hype for Lucas Papaya balm but I'm not recommending Lucas because it contains petroleum. I've stuck with Simmons and Pure Papaya because they are natural ingredient based and petroleum free.

Aside from Papaya, Pure Papaya Ointment also contains calendula, shea butter, jojoba oil and macadamia oil. These are fantastic healing ingredients ideal for eczema and dry skin. When comparing fragrance Pure Papaya is stronger and sweeter. The only downside to this is you may not like the taste when applied to your lips, I must admit Simmons was better as lip balm due to the delicate fragrance/taste. The consistency and texture of Pure Papaya Ointment is softer and silkier than what I was use to with Simmons.

Despite the variations Pure Papaya Ointment is a multi purpose product and remains a staple in my handbag. The fact that I can use one product for a variety of ailments makes it my desert island beauty product. It is ideal as I can substitute my eczema cream, lip balm and antiseptic ointments for a tube of Pure Papaya Ointment. This product has many uses and can be applied to nappy rash, sore nipples, cold sores, after care of tattoos, hard calloused skin, sunburn, burns & scalds, pressure sores & ulcers, insect bites, rashes, healing scars, taming eyebrows.

Everyone who I have recommended Papaya balms to has been happy with the results and pleased to have found it. It's affordable and effective plus I doubt you will regret purchasing it.
