Last night I dropping in on my parents on my way home from work as I hadn't seen them for a couple of weeks. HWen I got there, my mum was having a bit of a tidy of their medical drawer. We chatted as she was doing this, and then something caught my eye, a rather old and battered tin about 2 inches across and mainly green. It was a very old tin of Zam Buk, It must have been 15 years or so old. I had to pick it up and have a smell of it. I took off the lid and took a breath, the slightly mentholy antisepticy scent filled my nostrils and in an instant transported me back to my childhood. Flashing in front of my eyes were many many scenes from over the ... Read the complete review

Zambuc is a little bit of a miracle in a tin. Years ago so my mother tells me it was widely availible in shops here and when she heard they were going to stop making it she stockpiled up loads of tins full. These tins must be almost 30 years old now because my whole life ive remembered seeing them around the house. These old metal tins are so hard so open and getting very rusty but the ointment inside works a treat after all this time. When I told my mother id found them availible online she was very pleased as she thought it wasnt made anymore. Ive found two sites which sell it in the UK, they are www.rose-apothecary.co.uk and ...

Zam-Buk is a soothing balm from South Africa although it is now sold all over the world. It is made to treat minor wounds, burns, scalds, chapped hands, insect bites and muscular pains. Other uses include the treatment of chilblains and bruising. It is made by a company called Rose & Co and is recommended by them for a whole multitude of first aid uses. The company states that it doesn't make this product under any other name for any other company. So, if it's not made by Rose & Co, it's not the real thing. I bought mine from: www.rose-apothecary.co.uk It cost £3.99 and I bought it along with some other products from ... Read the complete review

Zam Buk is an ointment that treats all kinds of ailments such as minor wounds, burns, scalds, itchy and chapped hands, insect bites and muscular aches and pains. HISTORY The origins of Zam Buk can be traced back to 1903. It first appeared on Rugby and Football fields in Australia and New Zealand. When a player would get injured first aid officers would race across the field to tend the injured player, they would quickly apply the zam buk to the injured area. Zam Buk acted as an antiseptic thus cleansing the wound and eliminating the chances of the wound becoming infected. Before antibiotics if a player would cut or graze his knee it could become ...

Item: Zam-Buk Medicinal Ointment Price: Around £6 over 10 years ago, roughly £4 for the tin and £2 postage Size: 20g Bought from: Amazon I first saw this miracle ointment when a girl I used to work with took me to visit her gran, sometime around 2002. She had been complaining of a spot that was hurting her under her skin and her gran brought out a really old tiny little green tin and told her to dab some "Zam-Buk" on it. She went on to tell me that she had been using the same tin "since the war" and that the whole family loved it. My friend was obviously used to seeing this tiny little tin come out and didn't question it at ... Read the complete review
