Our History

The F.C. Sturtevant Company was founded in 1871 by Francis Crayton Sturtevant, a Civil War medic who was profoundly affected by the number of deaths to soldiers, civilians and animals from rampant bacterial infection caused after surgery. As letters he wrote home to his mother stated, if he survived the war himself, he would return home to develop a medicine that would cure infection. Fortunately, he did return home, where he developed the first antiseptic product to battle “bad” bacteria.

About Us

Then + Now…Having skin in the game.

Columbia Healing Powder, as it was called then, was the first medicated powder created to cure skin irritations and infections while also protecting skin and keeping it healthy.

As we celebrate our 150th anniversary this year, we are actively developing new and natural products which will help protect large and small animals from tick related diseases.

What started 150 years ago as a fight against harmful bacteria has evolved, through intense research and the expertise of the best medical minds in the field, into our discovery of helpful bacteria in the form of topical probiotics, for skin health and wellness.
