Since 1899, Bag Balm has been the farmer's friend helping keep dairy cows from becoming chapped from the harsh Vermont environment. Over time it has been discovered that Bag Balm works just as well on human skin! It moisturizes and softens skin while you massage it in. Bag Balm contains Lanolin and is designed for chapped skin conditions and superficial abrasions. Bag Balm works hard all year round, and works well. There is nothing like the original, and thats what you get when you buy this familiar green can.
