Which Natural Paw Paw Ointment is best? Nude by Nature or Suvana Organic.

I am all for natural beauty products and I often prefer to find a natural version of a bestselling product. Suvana Organic and Nude by Nature are two brands that have created clean paw paw ointments. You may be more familliar with the Aussie iconic Lucas' Paw Paw Ointment which is what all the models and internationals claim are their favourite beauty product. It's also stocked pretty much in every pharmacy and convenience store in Australia. I won't use the paw paw from Lucas because it is not a natural product although they are trying to claim that it is. I am a huge lip-moisturising addict and I also like to keep my cuticles hydrated so I am always on the hunt for the best paw paw out there. For the past two months I have put Suvana and Nude to the test and there is indeed a clear winner.
The Suvana Paw Paw & Honey Balm is certified organic (tick) and the packaging is also incredibly cute. Everytime I scramble through my handbag and find the yellow tube poking it's head up I have to smile. It's the bees knees. What I like about the Suvana Paw Paw is that it's really gentle and hydrating. The balm is a little thick so I rub it into my hands after application. I also think the flavour is pretty good (yes I have tasted it).

Some of the wonder-ingredients in it is Coconut Oil, Vanilla Bean Oil, Natural Vitamin E, Honey and Jojoba Oil. Delicious! I have found that the Suvana Paw Paw & Honey Balm is a natural pocket rocket and you don't have to use very much at a time so the 25 ml tube will last a long time. I have nearly finished mine after two months. My only issue with Suvana is that I feel like I have to re-apply the ointment quite often during the day but that's probably just me.
The Nude by Nature Papaw Ointment and I started out okay, but we didn't really get along. This paw paw ointment is really beautiful, and the packaging is cute. Beautiful ingredients include Shea Butter, Beeswax, Papaya Fruit Extract and Coconut Oil. The only ingredient I am sceptical at is the Parfum aspect because I don't think it needs the added fragrance if it is wanting to be a natural product.  

Whilst I found the Nude by Nature Papaw Ointment to be full of hydration, there was something that annoyed me with it. In the tube are little balls of Jojoba Esters and they just don't pop. I would apply the ointment and the Jojoba Esters would just be there. I understand that they are needed for added hydration but I found myself eating them because I couldn't get them to disappear.
As a result, the winner is Suvana's Paw Paw & Honey Balm because it is a truly excellent natural product and I now use it daily. I have already bought a new tube because I didn't want to end up with an empty tube with no Suvana to replace it with.
The Suvana costs $7.99 and the Nude by Nature costs $5.95 and they are available from most pharmacies and Priceline.

Are you a paw paw fan? Do you prefer natural products?

  1. I don't actually use paw paw anymore. I used to, but now there are other lip balms I prefer. I do prefer them to be natural, though :)

  2. I will go and get the Suvana one :) I didn't know until like 6 months ago that the lucas paw paw was so full of nasties!

  3. I use Suvana too, love the flavour and texture. I also find I have to reapply it a lot!

  4. Suvana hands down, every time! Chock full of natural goodies, unlike Mister red bottle which is petrochemicals and a tincey bit of paw paw (which unfortunately, because it is registered, it only has to label on the ingredients- but if you head to their website, it tells another story).

    Love the post girl
