Zim’s – Right 60 years ago and Right for Now!!


Zim’s sent me some of their products to help me to do this review, these are still my honest opinions.

Zim’s was started over 60 years ago by a pharmacist after the local cement workers kept coming to him for their dry cracked skin.  The pharmacist, developed “Cement Workers’ Lotion” which was an all-natural, herbal-based liquid.  This was sold locally after World War II and had a large following.  Later, the product was renamed Zim’s Crack Creme and became available nationally.  This product is still sold today along with a full line of natural skin care products, under the Zim’s name.

Here are some pictures of the items they sent:  (Click on a picture to go to their page where this is sold)

Max-Freeze Roll-On

I have been using this on my shoulders and it has helped me a lot. I have Fibromyalgia and as the weather changes so does the pain. So this was nice to have something natural that I did not have to worry about giving me side effects or would not affect the meds I take.

Zim’s Advanced Gel

I had surgery on my left arm a few weeks ago so I decided that this might help the scar. It will take quite a while before I know if it works or not but it is easy to put on and rub in. Below is a picture of what it looks like:

It is hard to see but it is a clear gel.

Zim’s Advanced Hydrocortisone Spray

I sprayed Zim’s Advanced Hydrocortisone Spray on my hand, took a picture, and it was dry.  This would come in handy for mosquito bites, poison ivy, detergent problems, cosmetic problem, seborrheic, and dermatitis.

They also offer gift sets that would be perfect for someone you know that has skin issues.

  4. This brand is new to me but I’d love to try it. It has several things I really like about it.
