I use this every night on my cuticles but also for any skin issue. Burned finger on a hot stove, scratch from trimming trees, my dad's surgery incisions, a bee sting, a dry patch from our thin Colorado air, literally every thing. I keep a backup because I plan on never running out.
CARPENTER'S CURE (Hand Salve-ation)
Carpenters know the healing power of tallow balm for chapped, cracked and rough hands. That’s why our hardest-working, non-greasy product for dry skin, Carpenter's Cure, was named after them! We made this restorative oil with hard work in mind. Slip it in your work bag or belt and use it as an all-around salve for any trouble spot—hands, cuticles, heels, elbows, and even lips! With deeply nourishing Vitamin E oil, Hemp Seed Oil and our Grassfed Water Buffalo Tallow, it's instantly soothing and helps restore skin's moisture balance.
Natural Ingredients for Sknicare
Grassfed Water Buffalo Tallow — Rendered from our family’s herd of water buffalo, this exceptionally nutritious fat is the basis of all our products. Be sure to read about the amazing benefits of our 100% grassfed tallow here.
Organic Hemp seed oil — Hemp’s full spectrum of amino acids help it provide complete protein support to the skin, as well as rich mineral nourishment. It’s high in Omega-3 and Omega-6 essential fatty acids (EFA's), too. Hemp Seed Oil is said to closely match our own skin’s lipids and the essential fatty acids are readily absorbed into the skin. It soothes and moisturizes for a remarkably radiant, revitalized complexion. It protects the skin’s moisture barrier, improves the texture of skin, and reduces the visible signs of aging.
Vitamin E Oil (from non-GMO sunflower) — Perfect for dry, damaged or eczema and psoriasis-prone skin, it works as a wonderful skin conditioner.
Tea tree / melaleuca Essential Oil — Tea Tree is a powerful anti inflammatory and a traditional treatment for dry skin and scalp. It’s particularly nourishing for those with skin conditions like eczema. We source this therapeutic-grade oil from Young Living.
I think because it's been cold the stick is on the hard side, but once you rub it on, DANG! My hands and feet crack and bleed starting once the cold hits but this has kept them incredibly soft and without that awful dry feeling they get when the weather turns--you know the feeling, like there's not enough lotion in the world to quench the dryness. This is a definite must have in my purse, in my medicine cabinet...
