Frequently Asked Questions


How did George’s Cream get started in Canada and how did it evolve to where it is today?

In 1997, George Doherty was asked by a dermatologist to create a rich moisturizing cream for dry skin. It had to work better than any of the commercial creams available on the market. George experimented in his wife’s kitchen to create the original George’s Cream recipe. Eventually George enlisted the help of a local laboratory to develop and perfect a unique manufacturing process. George’s Cream was originally sold in small batches at George and Skip’s Calgary pharmacy. Today it is sold through pharmacies and grocery stores across Canada.
