Carica Papaya 39mg/g Fresh Fermented Fruit

Made of Queensland grown fresh papaw fruit

At Lucas’ Papaw, only the freshest fruit from Far North QLD is used to produce our ointment. Once we receive the papaw at our factory in Brisbane, we hand select and ferment the finest fruit, under strictly controlled conditions. Our patented fermentation process delivers an exceptional concentration of the healing enzymes of papaw. The finished product contains 0.1mg/g of Potassium Sorbate, which is a preservative.
