My husband is an amputee of his left leg above the knee. He uses it for the stump before using it. He had skin problems. They recommended this cream and it has been a success. His skin is soft and healthy. I recommend it.

Great product and company
My husband is a bilateral amputee and uses the tallow for his residual limbs that go into his prosthetic liners. It has definitely helped with keeping his skin supple and breakdowns of skin at a minimum. Very good customer service, when I order it, it arrives quickly! Thanks for a great product!

I use the tallow balm as on my residual stump for the application of my prosthetic limb. I cannot say enough about how well this works for my purposes. My stump health has been improved tremendously and I only use a small amount each day when donning my liner. I highly recommend using tallow balm. I don't know what I would do without it as most lotions are just slimy.

It's effective to heal.
I am a B/K [(below-the-knee)] amputee and I had developed a sore on the end of the stump. I sought the opinion of five doctors and none could offer a solution. A prosthesis expert at the local VA gave me a jar and I started using it immediately. After one week the pain lessened and the sore looked better. I used the product everyday and in four weeks the sore was healed. As a preventive, I put it on everyday to insure the sore will not return.
It's a great product well worth the money.
I have a below the knee amputation my leg was always itching under the liner I bought vintage traditions product it's been fantastic it's the best anti-itch cream I've ever tried I can't say enough good things about this product it's well worth the money.
I'm a RBK amputee. My prosthetist gave me this to use for a skin condition I had underneath my liner. Nothing would clear it up. I used the Totally Unscented that night and it was gone by the morning. I was completely blown away by the results. I can't say enough about how wonderful your product is. I recommend it to amputees all the time. It has so many benefits to amputees. I use this stuff everyday and couldn't be happier with the results. Thank you for making my daily activities easier.

A little goes a long way.
I bought the balm especially for my residual limb, as I am an amputee. Easy to apply and I don't have to use much. I bought the unscented balm, the scent disappears pretty quickly. The balm helps with the liner an amputee wears, keeps the liner from grabbing and pulling of the skin. I would highly recommend to anyone not just amputees.
It does what they say it does.
I am a B/K [below knee] amputee and have a sore on the bottom of the stump. Over the past two years I have seen six different wound care specialists and they were not able to heal the sore. After I used the Vintage Tradition for two weeks, the sore had healed. I put some on each night before I retire. I highly recommend this product!
I am an amputee and your products help me wear my prosthetic pain-free and without any skin damage. Thanks so much for your efforts - and great products!
