What is the history of
Resinol Medicated Ointment has a time tested
record of safety and effectiveness for many skin irritations. Resinol was developed
by Dr. Merville H Carter in Baltimore, Maryland at the turn of the last century.
In the course of his medical practice, Dr Carter saw many patients with skin conditions
that were difficult to treat. After many years of practical application among
his own patients, he perfected Resinol. Over the years thousands of mothers, nurses
and doctors have voluntarily written letters attesting to the safety and effectiveness
Have there been any changes to Resinol?
are no plans to ever change the time tested effective formulation of Resinol Medicated
Ointment. In 1983 a fragrance oil known as Oil of Cade was removed from the formula
because it had no known therapeutic value and many consumers objected to the aroma.
Yet, many other consumers dearly remember the "old familiar smell" of Resinol
from their child hood days. A new sealed jar has been introduced to insure the
integrity of Resinol.
