Paw Paw Info

Besides being a popular edible fruit, Pawpaw has numerous health benefits both internal and external thanks to its rich vitamin content – particularly vitamins A and C – and enzymes such as papain.

Famous for its medicinal properties, it is often used as a digestive aid thanks to its high enzyme content. In terms of skin health, pawpaw ointments have traditionally been popular for all manner of skin ailments, inflammation and irritation, and as a first aid ointment for cuts and grazes, and for dry and inflamed skin conditions. However, many of these ointments are petroleum based, often containing more petroleum jelly than pawpaw itself, as well as containing other undesirable chemicals. Thankfully, there are numerous safe products on the market today.

HealthPost has a selection of petroleum-free and organic pawpaw ointments in tube and tub form, and combined with other botanicals.

Product Reviews

  • Great!





  • Great product


    This pawpaw ointment is great - it stays on better than other pawpaw ointments I have used, and is great for soothing dry, chapped lips, or dry skin anywhere else on the body. I have quite sensitive skin, and this works really well for me and my kids. I'll be buying more of it in the future, as it is a good price too.



  • First purchase


    Have used the other Paw Paw balm (red tube) for years so thought we'd give this a go. Haven't used it much as yet but I'm sure it will be just as good as the other.
