Frequently Asked Questions

Is it safe to use on my face?
Yes, Bag Balm was originally created in 1899 for use on dairy farms during the harsh winters in Vermont’s Northeast Kingdom, and has been used in households ever since.

How do I use it?
A small amount goes a long way! Start with a pea-sized amount and massage into dry skin. Some people use more overnight, and less on their lips. A very common use is to apply Bag Balm to dry, cracked feet and wear socks overnight.

What’s it made of?
Bag Balm is made from just four simple ingredients, uniquely combined to provide its intensely moisturizing results:

  • Petrolatum
  • Lanolin
  • 8-Hydroxyquinoline Sulfate
  • Paraffin wax

I just bought a new tin of Bag Balm, and the product inside looks different from the product in my previous tin - did you change the formula?
No, it's the same great product you've come to rely on! As the ingredients in Bag Balm age, the product can darken to a slight caramel/brown color. This is a natural occurrence and is not cause for alarm. It is still safe to use and remains effective. It's best to store Bag Balm in a cool, dry place.

Is it safe to use it on my dog?
They've heard from hundreds of people who have used Bag Balm to combat calluses, dry/cracked paws and rawness that can be caused by winter (and/or a harsh summer). People have even used it on dry noses and hot spots with good results. It’s best if your pet doesn’t ingest large amounts of Bag Balm.

Why is there a cow on the lid?
Bag Balm is the original “udder balm.” It was created back in 1899 to help moisturize and soothe cows’ udders that would become chapped in Vermont’s harsh, Northeast Kingdom winters.

From Farm to Fame

In 1899, rumors flew around the Northeast Kingdom about a miraculous potion for chafed and cracked cow udders concocted by a pharmacist in Wells River. So one fateful morning in 1900, a Lyndonville farmer named John L. Norris saddled his best horse and rode 30 long miles to find out what the fuss was about. 

The minute he tried it on the first cow, John Norris knew what he had to do. He scraped up every penny he could lay his rough hands on to buy the formula and all the rights to market it.

He hired a product designer to create the distinctive green tin with a cow’s head and Vermont’s indigenous red clover on the cover. The legend was born, and it was too big to stay in the barn. Before long it was a staple in everybody’s home. 

Old locals still talk about how Bag Balm saved everybody’s hide in the winter of 1933, when the temperature fell to 50 below zero. In 1937, Admiral Richard Byrd took Bag Balm to the North Pole. During World War II, soldiers used it on their rifles to keep them in shape. After the Twin Towers in New York fell on 9-11, Bag Balm quietly provided their ointment to be massaged into the scratched paws of search dogs who relentlessly roamed over mountains of rubble looking for survivors. 

And they guess that’s how Bag Balm became a staple of every home in the Northeast Kingdom, ready to rescue and moisturize every cut, callus, new tattoo, ski boot-chafed foot, Kingdom lip, 30-below cracked heel, or patch of dry winter skin of every member of the household right down to the zapped paw pads of the family dog.

Massage thoroughly and allow ointment to remain for full softening effect.

Special Directions:

Bag Balm contains lanolin and stays on to provide moisturizing and softening. For pets, apply Bag Balm liberally to the affected area. For use on cows, thoroughly wash treated teats and udder with separate towels before each milking. To avoid contamination after each milking, bathe the udder with plenty of hot water, strip milk out and dry skin. Apply Bag Balm freely and massage gently with this proven ointment twice daily. This product contains no alcohol.

For chapped conditions and superficial abrasions. After each milking, apply thoroughly and allow coating to remain on surface. This protective ointment helps to keep superficial tissue moist and soft.

In case of deep or puncture wounds seek medical help. Discontinue use if rash or irritation occurs. Keep this, and all medications, away from children.

This is the best 'cure-all' I've ever found, has replaced neosporin in my medicine cabinet AND replaced some of the face moisturizers. Nice around the eyes at night, great for cuts & scratches, and bug bites.
