My grandmother used the "orginal" Bengay when I was a kid, for head colds, chest colds and it ALWAYS worked.. Where can I find the ORGINAL BENGAT? ## I really have no answer for you, I wasn't even aware that the formula had changed over the years. The product is manufactured by Johnson&Johnson and you could call them to ask, the number is 800-223-0183 Are you sure it was Bengay she used and not something else?
