Research Facts
I.D.A. pharmacies have provided exemplary care to patients since 1932, when the Independent Druggists' Alliance (I.D.A.) was first established in Canada. The Guardian pharmacy banner was founded 1964 with the same unwavering commitment to the profession. Over the years, both have become trusted names in pharmacy care and have garnered tremendous loyalty from their patients.
Friar's Balsam is an antiseptic and stimulating expectorant. Action & Uses: Can be used as an antiseptic and protectant to minor cuts and abrasions, chapped skin and lips, cracked nipples, small fissures of skin and anus, bedsores, indolent ulcers, herpes simplex, and gingivitis.
Tincture of benzoin is a pungent solution of benzoin resin in ethanol. A similar preparation called Friar's Balsam or Compound Benzoin Tincture contains, in addition, Cape aloes or Barbados aloes and storax resin. Friar's balsam was invented by Joshua Ward around 1760.
