Gramp Lyford's Country Salve was developed by pharmacists David and Rich Rochefort and named for David's grandfather George Lyford, who was a Chelsea, Vermont dairy farmer. They were inspired to create Gramp Lyford's Country Salve after noticing that daily exposure to the elements often left Gramp's hands dry, rough and cracked. This light, greaseless salve contains urea and allantoin to better penetrate and promote healing of dry skin.
