Lucas Papaw is an Australian brand of soothing ointments made from fresh, hand selected Queensland papaya. It was founded by Dr. Thomas Pennington Lucas almost a century ago.
Originally practicing medicine in London, Dr. Lucas came to Australia in 1876. In Queensland, Dr. Lucas carried out numerous scientific studies and botanical experiments. Among these was the study of the papaw tree. The doctor then started to combine his extensive medical training with his knowledge of natural history and botany to create his signature papaw tree-based remedies.
The ointment he initially formulated has antibacterial and antimicrobial properties. This can be used as a local topical application on injuries such as minor burns and scalding, sunburns, gravel rashes, cuts, minor open wounds, nappy rashes, and insect bites.
As his research grew, Dr. Lucas eventually opened a hospital called ““Vera,”” where his products were used extensively. As this hospital recorded many positive results, people saw the benefits of the ointment. This eventually led to ointments’ use spreading around Australia and the world. There was even a testimony to Papaw written in 1910 by the Great Ormond St. Hospital London, as proof of its effectiveness. Even today, Lucas Papaw products carry a ““Vera Papaw Hospital”” trademark printed on them as a seal of originality.
Several generations later, all important papaw remedies have been passed on to the descendants of Dr. Lucas. Today, the family-owned business continues to produce the Papaw Ointment with the same formula that Dr. Lucas used.
