Paw paw balms are extremely popular in Australia. So if your not obsessed with them, then you should be. Paw Paw ointments is my family's current fave product. It is a multi-purpose all rounder product that is great for almost everything.

There’s lots of evidence to suggest that paw paw has all sorts of different therapeutic properties for inside the body and out. It’s beneficial for ulcers, eczema and other skin irritations as well a rich source of antioxidants that the body needs to fight against cancer-causing cells. Vitamin C, E and beta-carotene's are antioxidants that prevent all kinds of cancers.

With so many currently on the market it can be difficult to know which one to select as there are big differences between brands. 

Pure Paw Paw Ointment is perfect for kids. With its cartoon faces on each tube to represent the flavour it's hard to resist the fun packaging.

My son absolutely loves this paw paw ointment. He's a lips licker and throughout Winter his lips are constantly cracked and occasionally bleed.  He keeps his paw paw ointment in his school bag and uses it throughout the day to prevent his lips from bleeding and occasionally applying it to his cheeks when they feel itchy to provide a moisture barrier.

Even though these ointments are flavoured, its very subtle, it is more of a scent you can smell not taste.
