The South's Best-Kept
In a world overrun by designer drugs and prescription painkillers, Red
Oil's tried-and-true curative powers continue to provide simple relief
for life's small hurts. Its well-earned reputation for instant pain
relief and healing continues to be proven every day in factories and
homes across the country.
Originally called "So-Fas-Co Oil", the healing solution fondly referred
to as "that red oil" was developed in the early 1930's. The creator was
an inventor/ entrepreneur named Cleo Everhart.
He and a pharmacist discovered a formula with strong antiseptic
properties that soothed wounds rather than burning, and at the same
time, promoted healing.
Red Oil was immediately accepted by the furniture, textile and steel
industries. It wasn't long before hundreds of factories and mills were
stocking cases of Red Oil in their first aid rooms. Mill workers took
Red Oil home and shared it with their families for insect bites and
sunburn relief. Three generations later, the positive effects of Red
Oil's soothing and healing properties are still being felt throughout
Countless people have written testimonials about Red Oil over the years,
proclaiming its many wonderful virtues. Parents prefer Red Oil's
pain-free healing on their children's small hurts, to the painful
application of alcohol-based products. The list of common usage has been
as diverse and interesting as the people who have used and swear by Red
From bed sores to paper cuts, from mosquito bites to rug burn, Red Oil
has come to the rescue!
