WHY Gloves In A Bottle® is Different from Conventional Lotions and Creams?
Gloves In A Bottle is a shielding lotion. A shielding lotion bonds with the outer-most layer of skin, locking in natural moisture and oils. Natural moisture and oil loss is the leading cause of dry skin and irritated skin. This is one of the biggest reasons why so many dermatologists are now recommending Gloves In A Bottle as an effective dry skin treatment.
Unlike contemporary skin moisturizers which try to replace the skin's natural moisture with an artificial, often greasy moisture, Gloves In A Bottle bonds with dead skin cells to create what can only be termed an invisible pair of gloves. This new outer layer helps prevent the loss of natural oil and moisture, supports skin elasticity, and improves the overall ability of the epidermis to protect the inner skin cell layers. The natural moisturizing effects of Gloves In A Bottle will leave your skin soft and supple!
While conventional moisturizers, lotions and skin creams coat your skin with petroleum or wax-based substances that tend to clog pores and inhibit the skin's ability to breathe and perspire, Gloves In A Bottle functions so well that the skin breathes and perspires naturally. Because it literally becomes part of the outer layer of skin, it does not wash off like other lotions, but comes off naturally as your skin exfoliates. For continued protection, simply reapply in 4 — 12 hours.
The outer layer of skin
The outer, protective layer of skin consists of dead cells. These cells need to stay moisturized in order to perform the function of protecting the deeper layers of skin. To keep the skin's natural moisture from leaving the outer layer of skin, the skin produces natural oils. These oils also help keep irritants away from the deeper, more delicate layers of skin. Modern living (frequently washing with soap and exposure to an ever increasing number of chemicals), harsh weather and other irritants can remove these natural oils.
What Happens When Your Natural Oil Is Stripped Away?
When the natural oils are stripped away from the outer layer of skin, the skin's own moisture quickly leaves the outer layer of skin resulting in dry, irritated or itchy skin.
Furthermore the deeper layers of skin are left exposed to a host of damaging, everyday substances including many cosmetics, detergents, anti-bacterial soaps, solvents, cleaners, gardening chemicals, dirt ad grease, latex glove powder, etc. The result is skin that is more dry, irritated, or itchy and more susceptible to becoming cracked and further damaged.
Conventional moisturizers, lotions and skin creams (artificial moisturizers) only attempt to replace natural moisture with artificial moisture. They only mask the symptoms by offering temporary relief that does little to heal the skin.
Regular use of conventional moisturizers, lotions and skin creams can send the wrong message to the skin (that there is enough moisture present), causing it to produce less natural moisture. Natural moisture is the only thing that is going to truly resolve a dry skin condition.
Gloves In A Bottle restores the protective qualities to the outer layer of skin that modern living strips away – so that your skin stays properly moisturized and healthy. Gloves In A Bottle delivers moisture the natural way nature intended.
