"Gloves In A Bottle forms a protective barrier on the skin and keeps out irritants and chemicals. It also allows the natural oils and moisture to remain in the skin so it can heal better. It is a big advantage that Shielding Lotions™ are light and go on without a greasy mess. When your skin gets dry and itchy you know that the protective outer layer of skin has been stripped away.
The artificial moisturizers in conventional creams and lotions can send a signal to the moisture producing parts of your skin that enough moisture is present. Your skin then makes less of the natural moisture needed to resolve a dry skin problem. With a Shielding Lotion™ you protect your own natural oils and moisture in the skin, so it heals faster."
