Research Facts
Ibaderm is an antiseptic hand lotion and body rub; it uses a combination of emollients to sooth and cool the skin and bacteriostatic hexachlorophene to stop the spread of bacteria; Ingram & Bell marketed the product to hospitals as a soothing alternative to rubbing alcohol for treatment of bed patients as well as for other skin discomfort.
Ingram & Bell Limited was a medical supply company first established in Toronto in 1905; the company became a Canadian leader in the distribution of medical products; their wide selection included equipment, surgical tools, and pharmaceuticals; as the company grew, they established branches in Montreal, Winnipeg, Calgary, and Vancouver; became Ingram & Bell Inc. and 49% owned by MDS in 1986; MDS acquired 100% in 1993; became Source Medical Corporation after merger with Allegiance Healthcare Canada Inc. in 1997; acquired by Cardinal Health Canada Inc. in 2005.
The D in diamond symbol and date codes embossed on the bottom indicates the bottle itself was made by Canadian glass manufacturer Dominion Glass Company in the Hamilton, Ontario factory; the progressive line system month code and “7” year code, along with “V” prefixed mould number discontinued in the 1950s, signify it was produced in 1966
