After years of research, in 1906, an Australian doctor discovered ultimate healing properties of papaw extract. The doctor was a famous botanist and medical practitioner Thomas Pennington Lucas who issued a handbook describing the Carica Papaya tree and its characteristics. He believed to have found the finest ingredient for his future miracle ointment – and he was right! In 100 years of existence Lucas' Papaw Remedies company has never changed the status from being a family business, and is still situated in Brisbane where the ointment is produced. To the date, the formula for the product is the same as it was when Dr Lucas created it, making Lucas Papaw ointment one of the best remedies for any skin problem or disease.
