Comfortine Medicated Ointment - with a trademark of William H Rorer, Licensor

It is produced by the following company: Dermik Laboratories, Inc., (subsidiary of Rorer Group Inc.) Ft. Washington, PA 19034

And formulated by: Dr. Alison Howe Price, Philadelphia, PA.: graduated from Swarthmore University and then graduated medical school from Thomas Jefferson University, he also formulated Maalox Antacid, Parepectolin (anti-diarrhea), and Neoxyn (for poison ivy) for Wm. H. Rorer, Inc. during the 1940’s ~ 1950’s.

The list of Ingredients are: Vitamin A, Vitamin D, Zinc Oxide, and Lanolin (In a pleasantly scented protective base).

Inactive Ingredients:

Ascorbyl Palmitate
Cetyl Alcohol
Iron Oxides
Lanolin Alcohol
Mineral Oil
Monoglyceride Citrate
Polyglyceryl-4 Oleate (and) PEG-8 Propylene Glycol Cocoate
Propyl Gallate
Propylene Glycol
Purified Water
Vegetable Oil

*Butylated hydroxyanisole (BHA) and the related compound, butylated hydroxytoluene (BHT) are phenolic compounds that are often added to preserve fats.

The above ingredients are taken directly from the Comfortine package, the company discontinued it because they said it was too costly to manufacture, I purchased the last tube I could find around 1980's and the standard tube of Net Wt. 4 oz. cost $25.00, and I am using my last tube very sparingly. I also had the privilege of knowing the Doctor who formulated the product. Hope this helps all those looking for this product and/or the ingredients in Comfortine.

Wow... cannot believe how many people remember this incredible cream..... used it on diaper rash in 1968-67. Paid $5 for it. Would love to get my hands on some. Go to your local drug store....they may be able to find it and order it for you. I have done this with other medications I could not find!
