Barrier Skin Cream for Gardening

Barrier Sking Cream for Gardening

Gardening hands are a thing of the past with Workman’s Friend.

Let your multi-colored annuals and well-trimmed hedges take center stage.

For a true gardener, the feeling of getting dirty is unbeatable. Cultivating unbroken soil, thinning perennials and deadheading are all activities that require you to literally get down and dirty. Using your hands as you shape this ever-changing landscape can be incredibly satisfying and therapeutic. But oftentimes what gives you away as an avid gardener isn’t your thriving peonies or emerald-green lawn it’s your dirty hands.  

With Workman’s Friend, your ‘gardening hands’ will be a thing of the past. Our weightless cream coats your hands with a thin layer of invisible protection against the harsh irritants found in plant products. Its non-greasy formulation means you’ll still be able to feel the texture of the soil as you work it through your hands. The only difference is once you’re done, a simple wash, wipe and you’re clean. The days of standing over the sink with a nail brush in hand are gone thanks to Workman’s Friend.

Our non-toxic formulation will shield your hands from common plant irritants found in flowers like geraniums and daffodils. If you are sensitive to onion, garlic and tulip bulbs Workman’s Friend can act as a barrier. Our cream helps you enjoy your sunny summer days in the garden, as opposed to staying indoors and suffering with irritated and itchy hands.

Workman’s Friend is an odorless cream thereby allowing you to literally smell the flowers. You won’t have to wonder whether what you are smelling is the cream, or your fragrant garden. Workman’s Friend is also a moisturizing cream that acts like a barrier. This means the drying agents found in so many gardening products will do their job without drying out your skin.

Workman’s Friend Barrier Skin Cream is your best garden tool.

Shears, spades, rakes, shovels and pruners, these are all considered essential tools in the garden. But perhaps your most useful tool is your hands. Sure, you hose-off your shovel after use or sharpen your shears before you trim, but do you take the same care with your hands?  Let Workman’s Friend be your gardening ally.

  • Breaking up clumps of soil: By applying a layer of Workman’s Friend on your hands before you start, this task can be an enjoyable one without having to be so dirty.
  • Raking leaves: Blisters are a common complaint after an afternoon of raking leaves off the lawn. Before you grab that rake, why not take a minute and coat your hands in Workman’s Friend? Our non-greasy formulation means tools like a rake won’t be slippery to the touch. Your hands will be moisturized and not chafe against the tool.
  • Applying fertilizer: Usually available in either liquid or pellet form, this highly toxic chemical is a universal irritant. Wearing gloves to apply it is recommended, but often the fertilizer ends up coming into contact with your skin no matter how careful you are. Workman’s Friend safeguards your hands and forearms against this frequent skin irritant, making sure you can safely get on with your work.
