Capper’s Farmer Gift Guide for the 2013 Holiday Season

Simple. Goodness. These two words succinctly sum up the “udderly” revitalizing formula that composes Dr. Hess’s Udder Ointment. This remedy for dry cracking skin, eczema, and more has been a favorite from farmers to city dwellers for more than 100 years.

Udder Ointment’s light, non-greasy formula is a proprietary blend composed of 13 moisturizers and softeners, as well as blood circulating and oxygenating ingredients that work to hydrate the skin, mend chapped and cracking areas, and help heal cuts and abrasions, all with a pleasant hint of mint.

Dr. Hess Udder Ointment has been the go-to moisturizer for people of all ages since Dr. Gilbert Hess and business man J.L. Clark teamed up in 1893. Through the years, Udder Ointment came under various ownerships until finally returning to the family with great granddaughter of J.L. Clark, Polly Clark Tribe and her husband Tyler. Tribe listened to fan’s rave reviews and sadness after its disappearance from the market in 1999, and decided to resurrect Dr. Hess’s line of Udder Ointment in 2008. Dr Hess products are once again being sold nationwide on www.Amazon.com, www.Overstock.com and directly from their website, www.UdderOintment.com. They are also sold at Walgreens and Walmart.

Products include:

The newest addition to the Dr. Hess Udder Ointment line includes a soothing lip balm for dry and chapped lips. Based on the original healing formula and with added SPF 15 sunscreen, the Udder Stick will keep your lips protected and “udderly” smooth! Sticks come in four flavors: Original Vanilla, Mango, Pomegranate and Vanilla Mint! Available in 4-packs – choose one of each flavor, four of a kind, or design your own pack.

Depend on Dr Hess Udder Ointment to provide quick relief from dry skin, eczema, cracked heels and cuticles, chapped lips, athletic chafing, burns, abrasions, diabetic damaged skin and more! Now available in a new 4-ounce tube or a 6-ounce jar.

Moisturize and soothe painful baby diaper rash with Dr Hess Udder Ointment for Baby Butts. Also perfect for a baby’s chaffing cheeks, as well as their drool-sensitive chin and neck. Comes in a refreshing baby powder smell for you and your baby.

Bull Balm for Men is a perfect moisturizing solution for tough, dry, cracked hands and feet. Gently soothes razor burn skin on a man’s face while replenishing the much needed moisture. Basically, this is tough lotion for tough skin.

Developed from the original Dr Hess formula, Dr Hess Foot Cream is a foot massage in a tube! Use your favorite scrub to expose a fresh layer of thirsty skin, and then lather up! Your feet will thank you in the morning! This product is incredibly effective at removing painful dry cracks on the heels of your feet.
