O'Keeffe's Working Hands is a unique formulation of moisturizing ingredients guaranteed to improve the health of your skin.
Working Hands is a water-based product with a high-concentration of Glycerin, an FDA approved skin-protectant. When applied to the skin, Glycerin effectively pulls in and retains moisture within the layers of the skin. Additionally, O'Keeffe's Working Hands contains Allantoin, a skin-protectant derived from the Comfrey plant. It helps to remove dead skin cells, thus allowing better penetration of moisturizing ingredients
Water is necessary for the survival of each and every cell in the body. The layers of your skin contain very high contents of water. Skin cells require water to function properly and effectively as our boyd's first line of defense. When skin cells become dehydrated, or lose a portion of their water content, they lose their elasticity and our skin feels dry and rigid. This can lead to dry skin, split hands and cracked feet. These cracks are essentially breaks in the protective barrier between our bodies and the outside world. Cracked skin can no longer defend our bodies against invasion by foreign organisms and bacteria. The invaders can enter our bodies through the cracks in our skin, and therefore can lead to inflammation and/or infection.
People with dry, cracked, split feet try everything. Even prescription therapies,and nothing really seems to work. Finally there's relief. Nothing works faster, or more effectively, to protect and heal cracked, split skin.
Healthy Feet is water-based and contains Glycerin, which attracts and retains moisture within the skin. This moisture is necessary for the skin's healing process. O'Keeffe's Healthy Feet contains a higher concentration of Allantoin to allow better penetration through the tough, thick skin of the feet. Allantoin works to remove dead skin cells and thus improve absorption of moisturizing ingredients. This FDA approved skin-protectant also helps to guard the skin from damaging friction often experienced by feet.
