Paw Paw ointment has been a medicine cabinet staple for many Mums. It's perfect for nappy rash, dribble rash, cradle cap and its just as good for adult ailments.
In our opinion this product should replace the other currently on the market (not naming any names, Lucas Pawpaw!) as Suvana brand is 100% Petrochemical Free and not petroleum based. Did you ever wonder what that smell is coming out of that red tube? Not really something I want to be putting on my familys sensitive areas.
Edited to add: Petroleum isn't listed in the ingredients list of Lucas Paw Paw because the TGA (Therapeutic Goods Administration) rules mean that manufacturers need to list active ingredients only which means they don't need to list the petroleum base on the tube. NB: pharmacuetical grade petroleum has been used in many products for many years. Our (personal) preference, like a lot of parents, is for a more natural alternative and lots of people aren't aware of the petroleum base in some types of PawPaw ointment- hence the blog post about it.
The contents of the sunny yellow tube of Suvana however is Certified Organic by Ecocert (the world's leading organic certification body with a charter for beauty products) and Cosmebio (Europe's most recognized organic beauty association).
But most importantly, it's the business. I've used it so often over the last couple of weeks, most recently on Miss 5's face where after a terrible bout of flu, her nostrils and upper lip were inflamed red patches of nasty. A couple of applications of the Suvana PawPaw and the painful dry patches are totally gone.
So don't forget to go the YELLOW tube of Suvana Certified Organic Paw Paw Ointment. Available online at Belly Beyond for on $11.95.
Made in Australia.
