Butesin Picrate - Compounding

Updated
Gem Says:

Hello. I'm from Australia and had been sorry to learn that Butesin Picrate cream was removed from commercial sale. My daughter (a registered pharmacist with Pharmaceutical Compounding exp.) recently suffered burns while she was home cooking: I said my "often quoted regret" about the cream's discontinuation. We have - between us - located the original (1%) pharmaceutical compounding instructions for it and provided it's not large scale manufacture I can arrange to put you in touch with the compounding pharmacy - only in limited supply for individuals though (like many of us who grew up with this cream in our mothers' first aid boxes!).

One ingredient (apparently) had cancer-causing discussions at scientific circles... and that's part of the PR disaster that prompted removal. Personally I feel toxic wastes from other industrial sources - and asbestos in C20 housing are at least as bad! I am ok to take the risk with such a superior burn cream and take my chances if I'm in agony from a household burn.

Did you ever get any information regarding your request for the list of ingredients in Butesin Picrate? I too would like details about the composition. My 87 year old mother asked me to do some research. It looks like here or maybe purchasing it in Peru!!

Liza Says:

My name is Liza and I live in Richmond Virginia. I burned my hand severely last night and used the last of my Butesin Picrate, so I am desperate to find more. I would like to be able to buy enough to provide each member of our family with a tube that will help & hopefully last them a lifetime. I look forward to hearing from others about its availability.

I agree Debinky. “Gem never replies.

There is a formula so that it can be compounded by a commercial compounding pharmacy. Here is a reference for the article:
Author(s): Allen Loyd V Jr
Issue: Mar/Apr 2008 - Compounding Around the World
Abstract: A formulation for preparing Butesin Picrate 1% ointment. Includes ingredients, method of preparation, discussion, and references for the compounding pharmacist.
