Tackling irritated skin from a moisture-based approach was a natural tactic: parched, barren earth needs water. Split skin, same deal. Working Hands contains a high concentration of Glycerin that draws in and retains moisture which is necessary for skin to heal. Another key component is Allantoin, an odorless, non-toxic and non-allergenic skin-protectant derived from the Comfrey plant. It removes dead skin cells to allow for better penetration and absorption of moisture and moisturizing ingredients. All part of our revolutionary 3 Step Process that relieves dry, damaged skin.
