Gloves In A Bottle is a Shielding Lotion. A Shielding Lotion is a lotion that bonds with the outer layer of skin cells, enhancing the skin's ability to retain natural oils and moisture and assisting in the skin's ability to protect against irritants, harsh soaps, sanitizers and other common household and cosmetic products, that strip moisture out of the skin. Conventional lotions are merely artificial moisturizers that temporarily mask dry skin symptoms. Have you ever started using a moisturizer because you had a dry skin condition only to find that when you stopped your skin became even drier? Only natural moisture and oils, below the outer layer of skin, can actually resolve a dry skin condition. These rapidly escape once the protective qualities of the outer layer of skin have been compromised. Rather than attempting to counter dry skin with moisturizers, Gloves In A Bottle prevents dryness from occurring in the first place, but it also retains moisture and oils to allow healing of psoriasis, eczema, dry, cracked or irritated skin from within simply using its own natural oils, lipids and moisture the ONLY thing which is actually going to resolve a skin condition. It is profoundly effective and increasingly relevant. It does not contain ingredients that moisturize artificially so it does not feel like a moisturizing lotion it is absolutely not greasy and virtually undetectable. It has a cumulative effect when used for several days in a row, dry and damaged skin will restore from within simply because your natural oils and moisture are left there to do their job while the skin is being protected from the interfering elements. 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.
