About the brand

Vanicream is a skincare and personal care product line from Pharmaceutical Specialties, Inc. which was founded by Conrad Thompson and Ed Mansfield (both pharmacists) in 1975. According to their website, when formulating their products they aim to "avoid chemicals that dermatologists considered undesirable and could be irritating or sensitizing to the skin, such as fragrance, masking fragrance, dyes, lanolin, parabens, formaldehyde and formaldehyde releasing preservatives." The Vanicream line includes facial moisturizers and cleansers as well as rash ointments and shave cream.
