About Pinetarsol Brand:

Ego was founded when a young chemist, Gerald Oppenheim, and his wife, Rae, a nurse, saw a need for products to restore and maintain healthy skin. In the laundry of their suburban Melbourne home they developed Ego Pine Tar Bath Solution, later called Pinetarsol, which remains one of Australia's most widely used inflammation treatments. Ever since Ego has continued to research and develop products and treatments to care for and meet the skin needs of all people.

Gerald Oppenheim passed away in 1995 leaving his legacy, Ego, to the family. His sons, Alan Oppenheim the Managing Director, and David Oppenheim both sit on the Board of Directors. As does Dr Jane Oppenheim, Alan's wife, who is the Scientific and Operations Director.

Pinetarsol - "Good product kind on your skin be it dry or sore. The scent is not unpleasant." - lonegunwoman

Great product for skin conditions - "Amazing product for skin conditions." - Book Reviewer

Great Product - "This has been the best solution for Psoriasis in the winter months and beyond if your skin is playing up." - Review by Daniel.

I can't recommend this product enough - "I can't recommend this product enough. I have used it for years initially to relieve shingles and chicken pox. Now I have a bone marrow condition which causes severe skin irritation and it is the only product to give relief. Unfortunately it is not available on prescription. My doctor tried but it was not available through the NHS. Such a shame because it is infinitely better than the prescribed alternative. I have given this to friends for their children when suffering measles and chicken pox. It is also brilliant for psoriasis and eczema. Wish I could buy it locally as delivery is a bit pricey. I used to get it direct from Australia - my daughter recommended it." - Mike

The best pine tar out there - "If only this was sold in the UK locally. The only remedy for eczema for my kid as everything else fails. I think the only thing better than this is the oil version (which gets a bit messy and wasted with spillage if not bathing), this gel is best for the shower." - Charlie C
