If you delve into the archives you’ll know that I declared my love for paw paw balm from the start. I wrote about three different brands and during that time my favourite closed their business. I guess over the years other multi-purpose products came my way and I never re-purchased. When Sukin, a brand I already enjoy using, came to me with a press release for their new paw paw ointment it certainly sparked my interest.

So what is so exciting about paw paw (aka papaya)? Fermented paw paw has antimicrobial and antibacterial properties and an ointment will provide a moisture barrier on the skin aiding the healing process. It is ideal for all sorts of skin ailments like dry lips, cracked nipples, nappy rash, insect bites, after care of tattoos, irritation from rashes - the list is endless making paw paw balm great for little first aid emergencies for the entire family.

Sukin Paw Paw ointment contains natural oils and wax which are suitable for Vegans. This balm is fairly thick in texture so can be applied lightly or dabbing on a thicker layer to suit your needs. If applying to the lips there is no flavour or scent. I like to apply to small patches of eczema when they are looking flaky or irritated as I feel the ointment can assist with hydrating and calming the skin. It came in handy to soothe a sore nose when I had a cold the other week. The tube is 25g which is a nice size for handbags and travel friendly. The RRP is £6.99 and it is available from Holland & Barrett and independent retailers nationwide.

I’ve certainly rekindled my love for Paw Paw and highly recommend. As I mentioned earlier Sukin is a brand I enjoy using, I like that they are affordable and readily available on the high street. Have you tried Sukin Paw Paw ointment?
