The Meeting Place

Has to be very exciting for many :)

McArthurs Paw Paw Creme is now available.

I am happy with a special offer of 250ml pump pack and 3 soaps and 50ml cream for $95 but if you get the order up to $100 free delivery. I am ordering an extra 50ml for $29.95.

Great for anyone with psoriasis or Eczema or just a great skin cream. (I have not tried it yet but ordering some so we will see) As seen on tele.

Always something to enjoy and er I do rather like to shop.

I am wondering where the expense is involved.  Others might comment on the ingredients :(

Another Option

Sorbolene Cream

There is a large, cheap, pump pack of Enya in the ensuite.  It is unperfumed, not teated on animals, without mineral oils (ie not petroleum jelly), PH balanced, for sensitive skin and made in Oz.

For moisturising and cleansing: washing, shaving, all parts of the bod (for femmes and metrosexuals).  With a light hand on the razor it fixed my occasional shaving rash (and there are expensive gifts of pre-, post- and whatever shaving products sitting there that have only caused me misery).

Only trying to help save money.  As usual, if the entrepreneurs' promises for other exotic products are fulfilled for purchasers good for them.

Thank ya kindly Sir....:)  Much appreciated!

But er the deed is done lol and I am excited to be honest. Made in Qld. Can you believe that? something produced in Australia and I thought the price reasonable; sorry.... but I do appreciate your reply and the trouble you went to, but as the saying goes "can lead a horse to water but cannot make it drink". I know we women get a thought in our heads and we are off and I am not buying it for Eczema or Psoriosis just as a wonderful skin care  creme (hopefully) after seeing Mr. McArthur on tele. I was hooked and been really waiting for it to become available. Nothing I am bothered about in its composition either.


I do agree with you on Sorbolene and I use it along with Goats Milk Soap a lot.

Thanks again Nautilus.


You are generous not to take me wrongly - men have a habit of ignoring the finer process considerations and think they do well by trying to be rational.  I have (wrongly) solved many 'problems' that my wife was only (a dangerous word in this context) relating to me for empathy and understanding.

I bought a brand of papaw ointment for years before looking one day to find out it was just expensive vaseline.

But I do believe in the benefits of eating the fruit (love the orange ones) and I use the leaves for tenderising meat from time to time.  The seeds have interesting properties too that could have saved us the cost of children (I jest about not wanting the children).

Yes, but Phyl...I can go one

This was sent to me in an email today.>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>

Take a Guess about What a Facial Product Called “Snail Cream” Is Made ofBy John Farrier in FashionLiving on Jan 1, 2012 at 12:00 pmAnti-Ageing Cream $19.99Voted Best For Quality & Value On The A Current Affair Consumer by Google 

Now rub it into your face. It’s good for your skin! And tremendously popular in South Korea:

‘Super Aqua Cell Renew Snail Cream’ contains 70 percent snail extract, and the company says it pays great attention the quality of that 70 percent.

The snails, the same kind that can be found on menus in French restaurants, are fed red ginseng while being raised in Korea in order to ensure quality slime. [...]

The snail cream, made from 21-percent snail extract, is currently the company’s best-selling product.

“I had severe adult acne,” says fan Mina Oh, 26, who began using snail cream last winter when her boss introduced her to the product.

Oh says that the snail cream is so sticky she has to slap it onto her face with a spoon. That doesn’t bother her at all.

“I could feel my skin getting much better,” she says. She plans to 

continue using snail-based creams.


Couldn't resist...LOL

Nautilus I paid $50 for the largest size in the red tub Paw Paw cream some time back and found out it has a lot of Petroleum Jelly as it's main ingredient which is supposed to be a real no no, BUT people swear by it and believe it is the "be all and end all" for helping wounds heal SO life goes on and we do what we want hey? Seems to me we all have our ideocyncracies and maybe mine is desperately trying to find my lost fountain of youth lol or rather keeping as good as I am regardless,  as long as I can.  Peter and I admit to being weird but similar,  and enjoy all the strange things we buy and do and take and use lol. Tomorrow it may be something else but makes life very interesting as our hobby :)

All the best.


Red tub - That is the one I was buying.  Our daughter used heaps of it when girls had to wear chapstick on their lips all of the time.  Worked better than chapstick.  Great for squeaky door hinges too - as was the eucalyptus chest rub.

If you want to hear something really funny, I found that the wife's lanoline for cracked nipples was excellent for use on boat parts that were prone to corrosion.  I still use lanolin for that purpose, but it comes in liquid form.

Wonderful Koko I hope it works as well for you the er "Renew Snail Cream" even as good as my "Snake Venom Renew Creme" I am sure you know if a snail walks over a wart and leaves the trail, the wart will be gone by morning so I would recon same with any skin blemish. 


If you watch the Bold and the Beautiful at all,  I want what Ridge is taking" or rubbing in lol

On Today Tonight almost on now. Salt remedies. Maybe we need to buy more than the 4 Salt Lamps we now have lol. I think it needs to be a room full of salt for the cures?  but Peter may never agree to that - worth taking a look anyway any minute now.

I think Lanoline is great also. I have been buying "Moo Goo" for awhile now and think it is a wonderful product and also Aussie. made.  If anyone has not tried it,  Google it and see. I was lucky enough to receive some samples which I shared and now quite a few friends swear by it.  

Is swimming in the briny an alternative - totally surrounded there and fish do alright in it.  For fun, since I can't post those other things:


You mentioned Eczema and Psoriasis in the first post. 

If anyone close was affected by either i reckon i would continue to experiment with complementary treatments in addition to the science based ones.  A son had eczema as an infant, which is when I first started with pawpaw, being one of the few safe alternatives around.  He grew out of it but developed a sensitivity resulting in viral asthma - asthma that can occur when his immunity is down through a cold for example.

I have heard Eczema and Asthma cohabitate in many people with some going through stages of having both. Strange how genes are hey. I have heard the Moo Goo is a miracle for Eczema and SO natural. I find it sinks in beautifully as a moisturiser.


Mr. McArthur has spent a big part of his life helping people with horrific sores (especially ulcers) and burns, and now he is able to obtain the amount of Paw Paws he requires to make all this natural Paw Paw cream. People believe he is God he has worked so many miracles so you see Nautilus although a bit easily lead where a new miracle is concerned re the  McArthurs Paw Paw (in the words of Big Kev) remember him? "I am excited" lol.


I know I may be crazy but do I care nah lol.   I am trying to convince Peter to buy 50 kilos of natural salt and heap it all around our bedroom but he says "have to have some kind of micronising thingy to blow the fine specks into the air to breathe but surely just sleeping in 50 kilos of salt would be good? well worth thinking about and as Peter says "just keep thinking Phyl. and do not expect it to really happen"

psst I would have thought after all the years we have been married if I really really want something it WILL come to be lol. Who knows may be sleeping in a room with 50 kilos of salt yet.


I bought the Mc Pump pack when it was 1st released--haven't found it to all that flash quite frankly

Just in case anyone wants to try Mr. McArthurs Paw Paw products. The price at our Health Shop was $65 for the pump pack.... $40 the Cream..... and $25 for the three soaps.

Over the net $50.....$30.....$16.50 

Or $95 all three packs. Big saving with free delivery over $100.
