lotion for outdoors

The Great Outdoors

We all love to be outdoors – it’s just part of human nature. We also think we are invincible to the elements, when in fact we are not. Our skin plays an important role in protecting our bodies from harm - such as from exposure to the sun, chlorine and even over-exposure to water. But the skin can only take so much abuse. This is where a shielding lotion is necessary to act like a second-skin that reinforces the skin’s protective barrier.

Are You a Swimmer, or Just Love the Water?

Being in the water a lot can be a part of your life or a luxury you will not give up - and that is absolutely fine! However, your skin loses moisture quickly when you are constantly in water and can dry-out rapidly when exposed to chlorine.

If you frequent fishing, you may wear a pair of gloves to protect your hands from sharp equipment or just to keep them out of water; however, it's inevitable that your hands are still mostly wet. Long periods of wet hands is going to lead to dry skin. If you happen to love swimming laps, your body is exposed to chlorine which can quickly suck the moisture from your skin. Whatever the hobby, it is important to include Gloves In A Bottle to your routine. The primary purpose of this shielding lotion is to protect your skin by creating an invisible shield, with your outermost layer of skin, that blocks irritants out and locks in natural moisture.

UV Exposure Is a Serious Factor

Being outdoors is great until you realize the damage the sun can cause - from dehydrating your skin to speeding up aging and burning your delicately beautiful skin. If you choose our SPF formulation, you are getting the secondary benefit of sun protection. Including SPF15, Gloves In A Bottle can also shield you from the harsh sun. Don’t leave home without it. 

Real Testimonials

It Works for my Husband

My husband uses this in the evenings before he goes to his early morning swim in the pool and it has kept his skin from getting dry from the chlorine. He has convinced me to try and it has kept the “winter dry skin” at bay for me as well.

I Need a Daily SPF

I’ve been using the SPF version as a facial moisturizer daily for years. It’s the only SPF I can stand on my face. It’s lightweight and not greasy at all. I can’t live without this product!

-Holly Duce

Skin Allergy/Pesticides, Tattoo Ink, Cattle Medicine

“I work on a ranch, so my hands get totally trashed despite my best efforts. On any given day, I may be using pesticides, tattoo ink, various vaccines and cattle medicines, etc.

I also work as an artist. What I do is make baskets from pine needles. The finished baskets are cured with melted pitch and beeswax. You can add those two items to what is usually stuck to my hands.

Lastly, I remarried, to an old cowboy who insisted on the whole shebang, including wedding rings. The last time I wore a ring was a good twenty years ago. I gave it up pretty quickly because my finger turned bright red and swelled like a carrot.

So the third reason I thought I’d try Gloves In A Bottle was to see if it would provide a buffer between the ring and my finger. It seems to be working.”

No Re-Occurrence of the Skin Allergies

“Your product has been a total life-saver for me. Upon the beginning use of your product over a year ago, I have had a total remission of the latex dermatitis that was plaguing me until that time.

Upon continuous use of the lotion, I have had no re-occurrence of the skin allergies. I have no further symptoms, and will be forever grateful for your product.”

-Arnold H. Stern, DDS

I Love It

"I have had a skin condition for a few years. Nothing seemed to help. I went to my dermatologist and she recommended using Gloves in a Bottle. After about a month, I noticed a significant improvement in my skin. It was softer, not as red, and flakey.

My skin feels smooth and soft!"

- Lisa Ackman

Knees, Elbows, Feet & Hands

“This is by far the best lotion out there. Especially if you live in a dry climate. I have very sensitive skin and this is the only lotion I can use to help with my skin.

I use this after the bath on my knees, elbows, feet and hands. This is great for you if you are going to be doing a lot of dishes, right after a tough afternoon of yard work, or even just for everyday at home or work use. I love this lotion because it is scent free, if you are going to school or work in a scent free environment this stuff is the best!”

Problem Skin/Letter Carrier

"First let me assure you that contacting you about a product is totally unusual for me. I can’t remember being so amazed about a product. I have been a Rural Letter Carrier for 21 years. You can’t imagine how bad all the carriers hands get. We sort thousands of pieces of mail daily. Every time we touch a piece of paper we blot the oil off of our hands. Then we go out in the cold weather (or hot). You can’t wear gloves and still be able to handle each individual piece of mail. You just can’t do it. When it gets real cold, the boxes are mostly metal… well you can imagine. You try to sit on your hands between mailboxes to keep your fingers warm.

Believe me, I can not tell you how many products I have tried in 21 years. Even a product for Cow’s utters! My sister in law brought me a bottle of your product. She said “You really need to try this” I was not very interested because nothing has worked in 21 years and this is just one more. WOW! It works! It really, really works and it works fast. What is this? My husband is a welder and outdoorsman. Hands like sandpaper and cracks in the finger corners. His hands are great now. He can’t believe it either. Anyway, why doesn’t everyone know about this product? I am going to take some to work. They won’t believe it.”

Best Lotion

"I’ve been suffering with dermatitis for months, been using creams from doctors but haven’t cleared it up. Within a couple of days of using Gloves in a Bottle, my fingers are the best they’ve been for months, they are calm and not Ifor irritated anymore. I’m going to continue using this product along with my prescribed cream until it completely clears up. It feels as though it leaves a protective coating on your hands and would be good in the winter when most people suffer with dry and sore hands."

- Nick Shownder
