Phytocare's Papaya Ointment with Calendula is formulated to soothe, moisturise and protect your skin. This new and improved formula has an ALL NATURAL moisture-rich base of skin-loving ingredients, including Shea Butter, Jojoba Oil, Macadamia Oil and Vitamin E, providing increased moisturising properties and improved consistency!
Papaya is traditionally a much loved remedy for soothing bites, minor burns, dry skin, nappy rash and cracked nipples. Papaya (also known as Paw Paw in Australia) is a fantastic source of vitamins, minerals, amino acids and enzymes. Our special fermentation process concentrates these nutrients and cultivates beneficial probiotics. The value of fermented Papaya in health and skincare has been recognised for over 100 years. Combined with the natural soothing properties of Calendula, Papaya Ointment with Calendula provides the perfect synergistic combination to soothe, moisturise and protect your skin!
Apply ointment topically to:
Moisturise dry, chapped or sunburnt lips
Moisten and soften nipples while breastfeeding
Soothe and moisturise (gentle enough for use as a nappy cream)
Care for skin that has become dry, cracked or irritated from the elements
Promote skin elasticity
Papaya + Calendula = the perfect synergistic combination to soothe, moisturise and protect your skin!
**As this is a 100% natural product it may become a little softer in the warm weather. You can just pop in the fridge and it will harden up again.
Phytocare Papaya Ointment with Calendula is 100% Petrochemical Free!
What are PETROCHEMICALS?
Petrochemicals are manufactured from crude petroleum, one of the most common petrochemicals found in skin care products is petrolatum, also known as petroleum jelly.
Why should petroleum jelly be avoided?
It is listed as a probable human carcinogen by the European Union (EU).
It is banned in EU Cosmetics (unless very specific purification standards are met).
It is commonly contaminated with Polycyclic Aromatic Hydrocarbons (PAHS). PAHS are strongly linked to a wide variety of detrimental diseases.
It tends to interfere with the body's own natural moisturising mechanism, leading to dry skin and chapping.
