Review: Natural Alternative Certified Organic Paw Paw Ointment
If you bruise as often as I do, this organic ointment works like a charm. It is 100% natural. You can use as much and as often as you like. In fact, I love this ointment so much that I had to squeeze in this review to include it in my 2013 top 10 best to products reviewed (to be released soon).
Made from Carica Papaya fruit extract, Paw Paw ointment was originally developed in Australia by Dr Thomas Lucas as a natural skin healing and growth accellarant treatment.
Paw Paw ointment is super rich with three types of natural antioxidants – vitamin C, vitamin E and beta carotene. Famously known for its amazing qualities as an effective multi-purpose topical application for minor burns, bruises, dry cracked skin& lips, cuts, chafing, sunburn, eczema, heat rash, insect stings, pimples and splinters.
For new mommies, this is great for soothing cracked nipples; and calming your baby’s nappy rash.
To test its efficacy, I used Natural Alternative Certified Organic Paw Paw Ointment on my one-week old large bruise on my right wrist.
*Background: I bruise easily. When I get them, the bruises seem to last for a longer than normal period of time before disappearing. Normal bruising should clear in about 2 weeks (14 days) completely.<
As you can see, at one-week old, the bruise is still visibly dark purple with greenish yellow undertone. If I leave this alone, it should fade off completely in the next 7-10 days.
Look at my day-to-day progress with nightly application of this ointment. Within 3 days, my bruise (which was large in size) has faded away entirely.
This ointment is incredible! It has no smell and comes in a thick transparent balmy texture. It does feel a little thick and ‘sticky’ on the skin. But all you need is a little bit on a small area of the affected skin.
Let’s look at the top 6 ingredients. Organic castor oil, organic beeswax, organic coconut oil, organic papaya fruit extract, organic honey and organic jojoba oil. This product is made from the highest quality ingredients and is 95% certified organic.
NO sodium laurel sulphate
NO artificial fragrances
NO harsh surfactant
NO harmful chemicals
NO animal testing
This is so natural; it can easily be mixed with other substances to aid healing. For example, you can mix this balm with a little honey and rub it over your dry and cracked skin and lips. It might be a little sticky but it will provide a boost of hydration, skin barrier protection and faster healing. Acts as a great lip balm too.
You can literally use this everyday for everything from surface cuts (eg. paper cuts), cracked heels, dry knees and elbows and dry cuticles. For a beautiful dewy sheen complexion, apply a tiny amount on your cheeks; or on eyelids for a sexy glossy look. Seriously! If you are a frequent user of petroleum jelly, consider switching to this Paw Paw ointment for a more natural alternative (oh! clever brand name).
