Over 30 years ago, as newly licensed pharmacists in Charleston, S.C., my partner and I compounded a diaper rash ointment to remedy diaper rash for our customers. We affectionately called it, Buttocks Ointment.
Over the next few years as we revised and refined the formula, we developed quite a following with our patients, local doctors and nurses. The demand for our product continued to grow as our patients recommended the product to their friends, so we decided to make the product available in the marketplace to other pharmacies. Thirty years ago, we incorporated as Flanders, Inc. and contracted with an FDA approved manufacturer to supply the product to our specifications, naming the product Flanders Buttocks Ointment.
Since our inception, we have relied on the effectiveness of our product to grow our business via word of mouth referrals and professional recommendations. As our customers, pharmacists, doctors and nurses have moved to other areas of the country, we have been able to continue to provide them with Flanders Buttocks Ointment thru our wholesaler network. The product is now available to virtually any pharmacy in the country. Even if your pharmacy does not have the product in stock, they can get it the next business day.
