–(HISPANIC PR WIRE – CONTEXTO LATINO)–Horse sense is a term first used around 1870 to describe a person who had good judgement or the ability to make wise choices. If someone is said to have horse sense, it is understood that the person has practical wisdom and strong common sense.
Here’s a good example: In 1877 a man used Columbia Antiseptic Powder (originally developed by physician Francis Crayton Sturevant to treat collar galls on his horse) to treat a fungal infection on his feet.
It worked so well, he asked Dr. Sturevant if he could market the powder to “humans.”
Today Columbia Anti-septic Powder is used by doctors, health care professionals and just plain folks who want the safest and most effective relief from skin irritations such as athlete’s foot, diaper rash, poison ivy, insect bites, razor burn, jock itch or just overworked, tired feet.
People can’t stop singing the powder’s praises. Barbara Wolfe from Florida has been using the powder for 50 years. “It always seems to do the trick when nothing else will,” she says. The family of Elizabeth Hilton of Ohio has relied on the powder’s powers for many years. “My grandmother used this powder on her children and my father has used it all of his life … nothing clears up diaper or heat rashes faster than Columbia. I have never written a letter like this because I have frankly never felt this strongly about any other product on the market.”
The secret to this product’s success is carbolic acid, a safe but potent ingredient that destroys harmful bacteria and fungi and promotes the healing of damaged skin tissue. The powder is recommended for people with sensitive skin and diabetes because it is hypoallergenic, safe and gentle, while highly effective in treating many skin irritations including chafing, moist dermatitis and abrasions as it reduce itching. Dr. Rick Minter of Missouri dispenses the powder to his patients because it is a broad-spectrum medication and does not contain any harmful steroids or antibiotics. Think of it as “first aid for your skin.”
