About Zam-Buk

Dating back over 100 years, Zam-Buk is a traditional antiseptic ointment that pre-dates many of the present day household first aid products. Based on the original Victorian design and formula, this ointment can be used for a whole host of first aid needs such as cuts, sores, bruises, burns, rashes, insect bites, chapped skin, blisters and much more. Zam-Buk is loved by many generations for its unique soothing properties. In the 50s and 60s it was a household name, it was even featured on army standing orders for soldiers to have on hand at camp. Now with a cult following, Zam-Buk is seeing a mini-revival with explorers, gardeners, festival-goers and daredevils making it part of their first aid kit.


When the original manufacturer in Leeds stopped making Zam-Buk it disappeared from first aid cupboards in the UK. But this Victorian classic was re-born when Rose & Co. bought the right to make it in Yorkshire. Now you can buy and use the same formula for many more years to come!
