Dr. Pawpaw is a UK-based brand that offers a range of multipurpose balms made from natural ingredients, such as pawpaw fruit, aloe vera, castor oil, and olive oil. The brand was founded in 2013 by Johnny and Pauline Paterson, a husband-and-wife duo who wanted to create a product that could heal, moisturize and protect the skin and lips for their daughter who was suffering from eczema. They were inspired by the pawpaw fruit, which is native to Australia and has been used for centuries by indigenous peoples for its medicinal and cosmetic properties. Dr. Pawpaw has since become a cult favorite among beauty enthusiasts, celebrities, and makeup artists around the world, who love its versatility, effectiveness, and affordability.
Dr. Pawpaw has also gained popularity in the Philippine market, where the tropical climate and pollution can cause dryness, irritation and damage to the skin. The brand's products are suitable for all skin types and ages, and can be used for various purposes, such as soothing sunburns, insect bites, eczema, diaper rash, and more. They can also be used as lip balms, cheek tints, hair treatments – the possibilities are endless. Dr. Pawpaw also supports various social causes, such as animal welfare, environmental sustainability, and women empowerment. The brand is certified cruelty-free, vegan-friendly, and uses recyclable packaging, having been making huge strides towards these advocacies since the beginning. Dr. Pawpaw also donates a percentage of its sales to charities that help women in need, such as The Eve Appeal.
Dr. Pawpaw is more than just a balm; it is a lifestyle that celebrates natural beauty, wellness and kindness.
