Lucas’ Papaw Remedies has a proud Australian history over 100 years. It concentrates on making just one amazingly effective product to the original recipe. The founder, Dr T.P. Lucas was born in Scotland in 1843 and had a keen interest in natural history, botany and medicine. He came to Australia in 1876 and settled in Brisbane, Queensland. Dr Lucas conducted numerous scientific studies, botanical and medicinal experiments, looking for a natural remedy for disease. The plant which he was most impressed with was the papaw tree.
The papaw plant and its fruit impressed Dr Lucas so much that his investigations led him to describe it as “the world's greatest healing agent”. From then on, Dr Lucas devoted his researches to its application to modern medicine and, as a consequence, its benefits to humanity. The passion Dr Lucas had for medicine and caring for people led him to open a special hospital in Brisbane called “Vera". At the hospital, patients were treated solely by his Papaw remedies.
The papaya fruit used in Lucas’ Papaw Ointment is grown in Queensland. Every item of fruit is hand selected. It is delivered fresh to the factory where it is fermented under strictly controlled conditions to just the right level to make the ointment. The base is pharmaceutical grade petroleum jelly and wax which meets the purity and safety standards of the United States FDA and the European Pharmacopeia. It is tested and screened for the level of total polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons. The ointment is prepared in an extremely clean environment to ensure it is free from impurities.
