Barrier Skin Cream for Carpentry

Barrier Skin Cream for Carpentry

Say goodbye to blistered and rough hands with Workman’s Friend Barrier Skin Cream

Let your carpentry work speak volumes not your battered hands!

Constructing, repairing, framing and installing, the skills of a carpenter are varied. But the one thing all carpenters share apart from their love of building is dry, cracked and splintered hands. Workman’s Friend understands this and that’s why we’ve developed a cream designed to help you focus on the job not on your aching hands.

In the winter, it’s the wind, cold and snow and in the summer it’s the heat and intense sun. Whatever season you’re working in, the outdoor elements are a major factor to consider when keeping your most valuable tool, your hands in good shape. With our intense moisturizing barrier, a simple application of Workman’s Friend means your hands are protected from whatever Mother Nature throws your way.

Never has there been an effective heavy-duty cream designed to moisturize hands without that greasy feeling- until now. Workman’s Friend has a unique formulation that goes on smoothly and dries quickly, allowing you to safely use hammers, pliers and screwdrivers without worrying about slippery hands.

With a four hour life span, you can easily apply a layer and not worry about interrupting your work to constantly reapply the cream. Workman’s Friend is also hypoallergenic. This means, whether or not you wear gloves, your hands won’t be exposed to the harsh chemical irritants found in many construction products and materials.

Workman’s Friend Barrier Skin Cream is your carpentry ally

Too many times dry, blistered and cracked hands are synonymous with the job of a carpenter. But that no longer has to be the case. By using Workman’s Friend your hands are protected from the unforgiving work environment of the carpenter. With a simple application our cream acts as a barrier preventing stains and dirt from soaking into the skin on your hands, forearms and under the finger nails. This means when the job is done, a simple wash and wipe and you’re ready to go. In addition, our unscented formula means you can apply Workman’s Friend without worrying that its scent might be too overpowering at work.

Many hand creams on the market today are loaded with chemicals and additives which simply sit on the top layer of the skin. Workman’s Friend is different. Its non-toxic formulation sinks into the skin drawing in and retaining moisture.

  • Sanding: The dust and rough texture of a raw surface can wreak havoc on your hands. Before you begin, apply a small amount of Workman’s Friend, let it dry and then start sanding. You’ll find the layers of dust will wipe off your hands much more easily.
  • Varnishing: You may only be using a paint brush, but the harsh chemicals associated with this protective finish can wreak havoc on your hands. A simple application of Workman’s Friend and your hands are protected from the itching and swelling that comes with using varnish.
  • Planing: Also known as shaping, planing is a common carpentry practice. But the smooth wood surface can produce slivers and a thin layer of sawdust over your hands and finger nails. A simple layer of Workman’s Friend might make all the difference. Moisturized skin isn’t nearly as prone to cracking as dry skin, and that layer of dust is easily washed off thanks to our invisible barrier.
