No more tub?

Review Text: 
What happened to the 16 oz tub?! Would give 5 stars if it weren't for that. Way too hard to put on a good layer with the frustrating tube... I've always used Desitin on my son and it's always worked great but I will be finding something else that comes in a tub!!! Hope you bring it back...

16 oz. tub

Review Text: 
PLEASE, PLEASE, PLEASE bring back the 16 oz tub. This is the only thing that helps my child with his diaper rash and buying the 4oz tube is just not practicable. Now i'm going to have to find another brand to buy but would much rather have the Desitin brand.

Why no 16oz tub?

Review Text: 
Is the 16oz tub being discontinued? If someone could confirm that would be so helpful! It’s the only size we use and I cant find it anywhere. It’s too hard to squeeze out of a tube with a run-away toddler! Any chance this size wikk be coming back or will I need to look for a new product in a tub? Hoping this is temporary! Thanks!

Please bring back the 16oz tub. We go through the tubes too quickly, especially at my son's daycare.

Review Text: 
Mom of 5 kids here and all I’ve used for the past 15 years is the maximum strength desitin and I’ve shopped everywhere looking for the 16 oz tub so disappointed that I can’t find it the little tubes get lost and are to hard to get out when changing a toddler wiggling away

16 oz Tubs

Review Text: 
You've now known for MONTHS that so many people are requesting you bring back the Max Strength (purple) 16 oz Tubs, yet your responses to reviews sound like a bunch of lip service instead of actual concrete information about the future of this product's availability. I've even called the company directly and received the same corporate boilerplate non-answers. You are losing customers in droves at this point. If there were any hope on the horizon, I'd hang in there and stay loyal to the brand, but if the Max Strength 16 oz tub is never coming back, then there's no sense in continuing to waste our money on the inferior Regular Strength product. And the Max Strength tubes are only convenient for on-the-go usage. At this point, my next purchase will be a competitor's product. Also, I'm sure I'm not alone in feeling like the company is just trying to boost profits by strong-arming desperate parents into buying the more expensive tubes. After all, if the product is still being produced for tubes, why can't it just as easily be placed in a tub instead?
