I had a bad eczema condition on my hands and was looking for a natural remedy. I was pretty desperate, hands red, cracking, peeling. Thinking of gloves to wear, I googled “eczema gloves” and found this truly amazing lotion. It is not a penetrating lotion, but a shielding lotion. It helped tremendously and it is the main lotion I use today. Keeping the moisture in must be what the skin on my hands wanted. It is more expensive than some lotions, but lasts a long time as it spreads well. A small amount covers both hands. I do love this stuff. It has made my life better.
