Can you tell me why they stopped selling/making this product? Everyone seemed to love it...
Dermassage Lotion - originally, only hospitals carried it. Then it moved into the public market. It was fantastic. A fine, smooth lotion with a cooling menthol feel. We used to keep our in the refrigerator for extra cold feeling AND we used it on our sunburns when we were kids. It was so silky smooth that it didn't hurt going on. (no aloe vera back then and no sunblock either) I with it was available today.
I can remember using this lotion as a student nurse for many back rubs. Patients really liked getting back ribs with this lotion. Those were the days when nurses really had time to give bedside nursing care.
