Lab Accident Leads to Historic Discovery
In the 1870s, a chemist and pharmacist name Albert D. Foster suffered painful burns in a lab accident. This accident inspired Mr. Foster to develop an ointment to relieve his pain. After 15 years of research and testing, he invented Mecca Ointment.
At first, Mr. Foster sold Mecca Ointment in his pharmacy to his loyal customers. It was soon found that Mecca Ointment worked well not only for burns, but for all minor wounds and skin irritations. Word soon spread and more and more people wanted Mecca Ointment. Mr. Foster’s invention became an international success, and Mecca Ointment grew to become a staple in households across the United States, Canada and the United Kingdom.
Folks refer to Mecca Ointment as the trusted household remedy. It has been passed down through generations of families because it works. And 125 years later, Mecca Ointment remains a family tradition.
