How to Cure Eczema, Pim
ples and Dandruff.
We desire to say that when we took
the agency for ZEMO, we were con
vinced that it was a valuable remedy for
Eczema, pimples and dandruff. Yet, we
must frankly admit that Zemo has far
exceeded our expectations as a treat
ment for skin diseases. We are pleased
to state that we shall continue the
agency as ZEMO has given splendid re
sults wherever recommended. Our cus
tomers like Zemo too, because it Is a
clean vegetable liquid for external use.
ZEMO effects its cures by drawing to
the surface of the skin and destroying
the germ life that causes the disease,
leaving the skin clear and healthy. It
does not soil the clothing or linen and
can be used freely on Infants. "
With every purchase we give a book
let on skin diseases explaining In simple
words how any person can be cured at
home of any form of skin or scalp dis
ease by this clean, scientific remedy.
