Background: T.P.Lucas, after years of research as a botanist with professional experience, stated in his 1906 handbook that he believed that the papaw was the finest antiseptic yet discovered. The antiseptic properties accelerated the cleaning of wounds. He believed that the properties of the papaw tree (Carica Papaya) made it one of the most outstanding trees in the world. Of the thousands of specimens which passed through his hands, that which commanded his closest attention and to which he devoted special study was the papaw Tree. His investigations led him to believe that he had made an outstanding discovery. T.P. Lucas obtained many cures with remedies made from the papaw tree. By use of papaw ointment sufferers today can derive the same benefits that thousands derived during T.P. Lucas' lifetime. Lucas' Papaw Ointment is a world-wide proven remedy of over 80 years standing.
