Mazon Cream

for eczema, psoriasis- seeping, cracking, blistering skin- I personally used it from the age of 6 mos. in 1955 to 1988, then it disappeared from shelves- it was an over the counter cream and it really worked. At the age of 3 months my skin would swell, crack and seep a clear liquid- a pediatrician introduced the cream to my mother and at the time they had a bar soap, shampoo and cream-of which I used occasionally over the course of 30 years then all of a sudden it disappeared. I did have part of a jar I used sparingly and guarded with my life and I called the company that made the cream and they said that they took the recipe out of circulation. The jar is long gone- sadly and I do not know the name of the pharmaceutical company that originally made it. I now am entering menopause and my skin has flared up out of control and cortisone creams makes my skin thin and easily bruised beneath the surface which is just as unsightly as the redness, swelling and seeping but not as painful. I really long for a good skin product. Mazon was a beige cream that resembled the inside of a milky way candy bar and I believe if I remember correctly that it was a tar based cream. I have tried other tar based ointments but the oily bases tend to only create more problems- even cortisone ointment does not work only the cream- but prolonged use has so many other negative effects- as I stated above thin skin, easily bruised-like blood looks like elderly skin that has a blood spill beneath the first layer of skin and I also notice very hairy growth from the cortisone on the forearms- thank goodness I'm a blonde. Anyway, do you know of this product Mazon or one similar that has been known to have good results??? Help Please send me any information on anything comparable- have you ever heard of MAZON cream??? Is it available again, if so where?

I ordered it from a Canadian Pharmacy on line for $7.00 plus shipping. My druggist said he could order it. His price was $14.95. It IS available. Ask your local pharmacist.

You can buy all 3 types of Mazon products here at a website for Granville Wellness...

Edit: product has been discontinued

I read your post and think I also may have found the solution to my problem. The prescriptions aren't helping and the side effects are adding up for me as well.

Mazon users unite. I used it from 1952-1969. I had skin allergies so bad and mazon made it feel cool and helped my skin so much. I can still recall the smell. I just placed an order for some, I am so excited to use it again.

So glad to hear from someone who also used Mazon cream...I used it for my exzema from the time I was a baby until a teenager and now that I'm's really flared again...I'm going to try to find it as it worked so well and share it with my grandson and grandaughter who also have the same problem...I hope it works as well for them as it always did for me.

I cannot believe the story I just read about having the problem from 3 months on and I also remember the color it had , the clay like texture. But the best was when My Mom opened the blue jar and a distinctive odor came from within, but through the years I knew that when I smelled Mazon cream, I knew when I woke up in the morning, that my pain would be gone, no more cracked skin or red painful spots that split my skin open, I loved that smell, relief!

Wow...I thought I was the only one in the world that remembered this product! My Mom always put in on my psoriasis from as far back as I can remember.She put it on my face and I remember licking it off because it tasted kind of sweet...and yes that smell.I'm 56 now,and will buy it again.Also have used those cortisone creams and had similar side effects.So glad it's still around.Mazon rocks!

I used Mazon on my eczema when I was around 5 or 6 in the 1950's(I'm 63 now) and it worked. Then they took the tar or lead or something out of it and it didn't work as well. Does anyone know what it was they took out or when? I've always wondered if I had lead poisoning from it. I have gout now and am trying to figure out what is causing it.

I have an old jar of Mazon and the list of ingredients on the box are Mercury Ammoniated (1/3gr. to oz.) Sodium Stearate, Acid Benzoic, Acid Salicylate, Tars. Probably taken off the market due to the mercury.
