Product Description

Size: 10 Ounce

Bag Balm® has been the farmer's choice for treating tough chapped skin and minor abrasions since 1899. No one sees more cracked dry skin than a farmer. Safe for both people and pets, Bag Balm® works to soften tough cracked skin while protecting it from further damage. Simply massage into the skin allowing ointment to remain on the surface for full softening effect. The petrolatum lanolin base is similar in texture to petroleum jelly and contains 8-hydroxyquinoline - a natural antiseptic and disinfectant. Easy to apply, Bag Balm® stays put to provide relief and a temporary waterproof barrier. Apply to your pet's paws to soften dry, cracked pads. Also perfect for treating hock sores on horses and other animals with dry skin. Not for use for deep cuts or injuries. For treating dry skin and minor abrasions, there is nothing like the original Bag Balm®. Available in 1 ounce and 10 ounce sizes in the familiar green can. Made in the USA.

I am 79 years of age and since the 1970s, I have been plagued with dry skin. I have taken the advice of Doctors of dermatology. None of the various medicines have worked. The dry skin has been a continuous problem. Mineral oil, as baby oil, had the best success. But 2 to 3 weeks ago I purchased a 10 ounce can of Bag Balm and a good coating well rubbed into the skin has been the best solution. I have no dry and cracked skin, anymore. I am very pleased with the result and will continue to use Bag Balm from now on.

Bag Balm was highly recommended by a lady who worked in a professional beauty supply store to help with patches of severely dry and irritated skin on my shins during the freezing New York winter. Now, it doesn't seem like much to get a recommendation on a skin cream in a store like that, but I should tell you that they didn't even stock this item. She sent me to the drug store down the street to get it!

Bag Balm will NOT win any prizes for it's smell (just a touch medicinal) but it is a miracle cream if you are really suffering from patches of skin so dry that you end up raking with your nails to stop the dry skin itch.

Nothing I write could indicate what a life saver this stuff is. But, I guarantee that if you try it yourself you will agree that it had amazingly soothing properties.

I had seen the familiar Bag Balm container in drug stores for years before finally buying some. I decided to purchase it after seeing an article about it in the local paper here. It spoke of its history and its superior moisturizing and protective qualities, and, though it was originally designed for use on livestock, it has become extremely popular with people. Like a lot of other folks, I sometimes suffer from dry skin. Especially in the winter time when the air is cold and dry. And when I am out on a hike and my skin is exposed to dry wintry blasts of air continually. A visit to the drug store aisle to check out skin conditioners will serve to enlighten one that they are certainly not alone. There are tons of every kind of skin conditioner one can imagine. All conditioners, or balms, seem to work well at first. They moisten and condition the skin effectively enough. However, the real test comes over time in the hopes that it will well stay that way for a while. That is where this Bag Balm (BB) goes to the head of the class over all others.

If you have never seen or used BB before, you may at first be put of by its consistency, which will remind one of a thinner version of Vaseline. Although it is a little thick and gooey like Vaseline, it does not stay in that state for long once it is spread on the skin. It feels at first rather slimy, but quickly dries and forms a very effective coating on the skin. Though you can feel it on your skin for hours after application, it neither feels tacky nor sticks to your clothing. And it is nothing less than superior in its moisturizing properties. Even the driest skin will not see BB just disappear and be in need of another application in just a couple of hours like so many other lotions.

My family has used this product for many years and it has worked well for them. I, on the other hand, cannot use Bag Balm. I think it is due to my Sulfa allergy. I may be wrong, but it is important that people be aware of anything they are using, especially when it is not the initial intended usage. I tried it on my feet and my skin began to get red, itchy, blister, and peel. I had a little redness on my hands, as well, but I had wiped it off and washed my hands after applying it to my feet. Anyway, I noticed someone giving a warning about 8-Hydroxyquinoline sulfate and I wanted to share my experience. I know Bag Balm worked well for my family, so just be aware that it isn't for everyone. I realize very few people have a Sulfa allergy, so this product will probably work great for the majority of the people like it did for my family.

I added a few drops of spearmint essential oil to about an ounce of bag balm and it improved the smell a lot! Especially nice if you use it as lip balm this way.

I had several people tell me to use this for a diaper rash cream for my baby after she had bad rash from milk allergies as a newborn. I had tried all of the other ointments for diaper rash and nothing got rid of it. I bought this at a fabric store and tried it on her after her pediatrician said it wouldn't hurt her. FREAKING AMAZING!!!! is all I can say. Her diaper rash was gone by the next diaper change. I have used it for every rash, chaping, chaffing, etc. I have even used it on my dry skin. It is a miracle cream. i have told EVERYONE about it. it relieves diaper rash and eczema instantly. Walmart and joanne's fabric used to carry it but it has become harder and harder to find so now I have to resort to buying it online and I am stocking up!!!

I am a surgeon, and have always maintained the assumption that no product could actually accelerate the healing of wounds beyond what a healthy immune system could accomplish in a healthy person with a good attitude and proper habits. This product makes me question my assumption. I have no data, but it is my personal impression that fingertip cracks and other maladies resulting from dry or chapped fingers and hands actually heal faster when Bag Balm is used on them. I recommend going to bed with an excess of Bag Balm applied to affected areas of hands, covered by gloves to protect sheets, blankets, etc. I've used it successfully on my feet, also; in that case I recommend socks in place of the gloves.

At the very least, Bag Balm will soften calluses and dried-up fingertip cracks and cuticle problems so they don't catch on clothing (like silk) and will make such irritations more comfortable. I suspect it does more.
