#1. Phytocare's Pure Papaya Ointment contains no petrolatum (a common ingredient used in other skincare products) After years of research, Phytocare's Managing Director realised the long-term harmful effects of petrolatum and instead chose to utilise a combination of natural and organic ingredients that moisturise, heal and restore skin.
#2. This ointment is multipurpose. You can use it on your lips, cheeks, elbows or any other dry part of your body. I love rubbing it into my cuticles and around my nail beds after taking off nail polish - leaving them soft and smooth! It is also perfect for this time of year when skin is pushed to its limits due to winter's inescapable chilly weather conditions!
#3. Phytocare's Pure Papaya Ointment is also humanitarian. When you buy this ointment you're also helping to support the village women who harvest Shea kernels used in its production. This initiative helps women to use their proceeds to establish much needed schools and health facilities in the Burkina Faso region of West Africa.
#4. Have you ever tried to rock a bold, colourful lip only to end with a withered, dry pout? Has your lippy highlighted cracks and dryness, rather than your amazing smile? (This has happened to me!) The cause is poorly kept lips. Lipstick certainly doesn't act as a cover up, so you need to get your pout in perfect condition before reaching for that little pigmented bullet. Pure Papaya Ointment is number one in the line of defense, combatting dry lips. You can also use a washcloth to gently rub over your pout to exfoliate, for smooth lips that wear lipstick well!
#5. Phytocare Pure Papaya Ointment contains - you guessed it - papaya! Named 'The fruit of Angels' by Christopher Columbus, papaya is a rich source of antioxidant nutrients such as carotenes, vitamin C and flavonoids, so not only is it great to eat but is also beneficial for your skin's well being too!
