  • The great herbal embrocation.
  • Always keep a tin handy.

Zam-Buk is a highly acclaimed traditional embrocation with a multitude of uses.

Zam-Buk first appeared on chemists shelves in Great Britain in 1903 in a time before antibiotics, and was an important first–aid medicine for any cuts or abrasions of the skin preventing infection.

Take a step back into the Victorian era and Zam-Buk was every where, painted on the side of buildings, in newspaper adverts and dotted around households in the UK.
