Uses

  • Tape Adherent. The most common backcountry use of CBT is as a tape adherent, especially when used in combination with tapes (such as Leukotape P) for blister prevention and management.
  • Skin Protectant. CBT is widely used as a skin protectant and is particularly effective for ulcers, bedsores, scrapes, cracked skin, and cracked lips.

Reverse cardboard sleeve on swab. Crush ONCE between thumb and forefinger at the dot located at the center of the swab. Gently squeeze the swab to apply to desired area. To avoid glass splinters, use only with paper cap completely in place.

About CBT

Compound Benzoin Tincture (CBT) USP is a botanical product derived from plants of the family Styraceae. Benzoin producing plants are small to medium trees growing in tropical Asia. Benzoin is a pathological product formed when the tree trunk is injured. It is produced by incising the bark and collecting the exuded resin after it hardens on exposure to air and light. Benzoin is an ancient drug that has had more different Latin titles and synonyms since its origin in the 15th or 16th century than any other official preparation. Benzoin contains esters of cinnamic and benzoic acids together with free acids. Amounts and types of esters vary with its source. CBT is prepared by mixing benzoin with aloe, storax, and Tolu Balsam. Alcohol is used as the menstruum.
