How are Flanders Healing Ointment and Buttocks Ointment different?
Flanders Buttocks Ointment is our first and flagship product, specifically formulated for diaper rash, heat rash and chafing. While it is also great for a variety of other skin irritations, healing hineys, heat rash and chafed skin is its primary aim.
Flanders Healing Ointment serves as a more “all-around” product – with a name that’s admittedly less fun to say. On the plus side, its unique formula provides an environment where the skin can heal from cuts, scrapes, burns and blisters on any part of the body. Plus, it’s great for dry/irritated skin and lips!
Why is this particular formula so effective?
Our unique formula creates a semi-occlusive barrier on the skin. This helps the irritated skin stay moisturized, while also letting the skin breathe – creating the most beneficial environment for healing. All of our ingredients are added with a specific purpose in mind, and our formula is free of dyes, parabens, fillers and preservatives. We like to say that it “keeps the good stuff in and the bad stuff out!” From soothing aloe to nutrient-rich sunflower oil, our formula has everything you need to help your skin heal.
How do I use Flanders Healing Ointment?
Simply add a thin layer to the affected area. The amount will vary depending on the type and severity of the skin irritation, but you don’t need to worry about putting on too much!
How quickly can I expect to feel relief?
For dry, cracked or irritated skin and lips, relief is typically almost immediate. The same goes for cuts, scrapes and burns. If using to encourage surgical scar healing, you may feel immediate relief but it will likely take some time to notice visible results. Continue application as the wound heals to minimize scarring.
Can I use Flanders Healing Ointment on injuries?
Yes, Flanders Healing Ointment can be used on minor injuries such as cuts, scrapes, burns, and blisters. Keep in mind that our product is intended for external use only and should not be used to treat deep or puncture wounds, infections or lacerations.
Will the ointment stain clothing?
No, Flanders Healing Ointment should not stain clothing.
Do I need a prescription?
No, simply ask your pharmacist for a tube! And remember, if the condition worsens or does not improve within 7 days, stop use and consult your doctor.
