How can I purchase Resinol?
If your local pharmacy does not stock Resinol, ask the pharmacist to special order Resinol through the pharmacy's regular wholesaler. Usually this routine request is filled daily and you can purchase Resinol at the pharmacy counter the next day.
What is the history of Resinol?
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 of Resinol.
In 2002, Resinol Medicated Ointment was purchased by Resical Inc. The company is dedicated to introducing the same effective product to consumers, nurses and doctors through out the United States.
Have there been any changes to Resinol?
There 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. It was necessary to slightly reduce the content of the 3.5 ounce size to 3.3 ounces in order to make this change.
Over time the labeling has been changed to conform to updated FDA over-the- counter monographs.
