Udder Ointment is 'beyond fabulous' for dry, chafed skin, eczema

Posted: Updated:

PHOENIX -- Now that it's finally feeling like fall -- winter, even -- chances are your skin is going to be drying out. Big time.

Polly Tribe, owner of Dr. Hess Udder Ointment, stopped by to show how her company's products can help.

Developed by Tribe's great grandfather and a veterinarian who was also physician, Dr. Hess Udder Ointment has been around for more than 100 years.

The ointment was originally made to treat the chapped teats and udders of dairy cattle, but the farmers who used it on their cows also used the ointment on their own abused hands.

The production of Udder Ointment was discontinued in 1999, but reborn in 2006 with the first new sales following in 2008.

"Dr. Hess Udder Ointment was part of my childhood," Tribe explains on the company website. "It was what we relied on for skin dryness to cuts and burns. When I began having children myself, it was the instant remedy for my own tired and cracked feet."

In addition to the original Udder Ointment, there are formulations for diaper rash, diabetic care, Bull Balm for Men and four flavors of lip balm.

If you have problem skin, be it eczema, chafing, severe dryness, diabetic skin damage, cracked heels or pretty much anything, Dr. Hess Udder Ointment, with its 13 emollients and moisturizers, can help.

Tribe described the skin-care line as "beyond fabulous."

"The basic idea is that it works," she said. "I can't express that clearly enough."
