Did you know that Lucas Papaw Ointment has a proud history spanning over 100 years?

After moving to Queensland, Dr Lucas (formulator of the Lucas Papaw product) carried out numerous scientific studies, botanical and medicinal experiments, looking for a natural remedy for disease. Dr Lucas started to combine his medical training with his profound knowledge of natural history and botany. While carrying out his botanical research, Dr Lucas studied tens of thousands of botanical specimens. The specimen which commanded his closest attention and to which he devoted special study 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. Now several generations on, the all important Lucas Papaw Ointment formulas have been passed on to the descendants of Dr Lucas. Today, the family owned business continues to manufacture Lucas Papaw Ointment to the same formula that Dr. Lucas used to prepare the ointment he worked so hard to create in his lifetime.

Over 100 Years of History...

Lucas' Papaw Remedies, the company that produces Lucas' Papaw Ointment is named after the formulator of the ointment, Dr. T.P. Lucas. Dr Lucas, after years of research as a botanist and medical practitioner, stated in his 1906 handbook that he believed the papaw was the finest natural medicine yet discovered. He used the ointment, which he developed for his medical practice in Brisbane, to treat numerous types of illness and disease.

The company still operates in Brisbane where the ointment continues to be produced. You might be amazed to know that the formula for the famous ointment is still the same proven remedy today as when it was created over 100 years ago.
