Dr PAW PAW excels in multitasking products that save space, time and money. Integral to their brilliant formulas is a very particular super-ingredient: the pawpaw itself, otherwise known as the fruit from the carica papaya. Renowned for its natural healing qualities, extracts of the fruit are combined with further hero ingredients to create a uniquely powerful formula.
This genius innovation has a multitude of uses, whether that be as a skin protector, moisturiser, nappy cream or lip finisher – it's no exaggeration to say that this balm could quickly become the whole family's go-to product. Not only that, its healing properties make it invaluable for both sunburn and skin irritations, while the development of a Dr PAW PAW hair treatment rounds out almost every conceivable application.
And it's all thanks to founders Johnny and Pauline Paterson's commitment to launching the UK's first pawpaw balm. Their hard work and dedication has since been repaid with numerous awards and innumerable celebrity testimonials, from longtime aficionados like Emma Watson and Chloe Moretz.
