About Us

We are a family-owned business in West Des Moines Iowa, the heart of the Midwest, and we strive to provide the best products and services possible.

We started in 1989 as a computer consulting firm, serving clients mostly in and around Iowa. In 2000 it seemed logical to use our computer background to open a small retail website selling and shipping Original Udder Balm, our favorite product manufactured by one of our consulting clients. As the website grew in popularity, we added a few more products to our lineup. By 2007 our little website was shipping thousands of orders and keeping skin soft and smooth all over the country.

At the end of 2007, Qualis Group, the manufacturer of Original Udder Balm, ceased all manufacturing and closed its doors forever. Our little website had grown beyond our expectations, and the thought of closing it down because the manufacturer had closed was unacceptable. We sat down with the owners of Qualis Group, LLC and worked out a deal to purchase both the original formulas and the rights to Original Udder Balm. We immediately sought to partner with a manufacturer who could produce the product for us to our standards, using the formulas we now had in hand.

We completely changed the focus of our company and phased out most of our remaining computer consulting clients so we could focus attention to Original Udder Balm and other similar products. Producing Original Udder Balm, Lineman’s Professional Hand & Arm Cream, ubalm, and other products has been our main focus ever since.

We feel it is important to support American workers, especially in the current economy, so we source everything possible from US manufacturers. Our labels, our boxes, our jars, our pump assemblies and of course our products and what goes into them are all USA sourced. We do not purchase anything from out of the USA that we don’t have to. We do not skimp on quality to save a few cents.

All our products are made to our specifications using our formulas, and they are 100% made right here in the USA.

Our official company name is MBMA Corporation, but our little website is known as OriginalUdderBalm.com, it is just easier to find us that way!

We are still a small family owned and operated company, and you usually get one of us on the phone when you call. We love to get personal service, and we love to give it!

Thanks for stopping by!
