Pawpaws (carica papaya) have played a very important role and were revered in many civilisations for their various health giving properties. The ancient Mayans called it the ‘Tree of Life’ and it is referred to as the ‘Medicine Tree’ in both Africa and the Caribbean. Pawpaw derived products are being used widely by health practitioners. Pawpaw is also high in vitamins A, C, E, antioxidants and enzymes.
Our products contain high percentages of McArthur Pawpaw Extract™ which is derived from the fruit of the pawpaw tree. Our pawpaws are sourced from the tropical areas of Queensland. Our most popular product, the McArthur Complete Skincare Cream shown on the television articles (see our news page) contains 60% McArthur Pawpaw Extract, by far the highest percentage of pawpaw extract in a natural cream on the Australian market.
