Barrier Skin Cream for Welders

Workman’s Friend spells relief for a welder’s hands

Soothe and clean cracked and dirty hands with our line of creams

Welding can be a rough, hard and dangerous job. From working next to the extreme heat of a 1,700 degree blast furnace to staying warm in -30 degree weather while welding outside at a nuclear power facility. With seven day work weeks and upwards of 12-hour days, the responsibility of a welder to complete the job can be incredibly demanding.

The Workman’s Friend product family was designed for such a harsh work environment. With one simple application, our superior Workman’s Friend Healing Hand Cream acts as a barrier, locking moisture into the skin. Our therapeutic formula contains a mix of herbs including comfrey, calendula, and allatoin known for their healing and anti-inflammatory properties. Once applied our cream goes to work to heal the calloused, blistered and often chapped hands of a welder.

But our work doesn’t end there. Workman’s Friend Barrier Skin Cream is a light and non-greasy formulation that means you can safely apply it without worrying if your hands will get slippery. Our cream doesn’t leave an oily residue. It is quickly absorbed so that you can apply it and get back to work.

If you often find yourself working with greasy, dirty machinery or sometimes without gloves in muddy conditions then we can help. Our Workman’s Friend Hand Cleaner with Activated Charcoal has never met dirt or grime it can’t remove. Before you begin any job make sure you have a bottle of our hand cleaner within reach. When you’ve finished your work you’ll be able to easily wash away the dirt and grease thanks to the high-grade pumice contained in our soap.

Workman’s Friend is the answer to clean, smooth and crack-free hands

For welders the industrial coolants and lubricants (metal working fluids) used to reduce the friction and heat generated when working with metal, can wreak havoc on their skin. Skin conditions such as dermatitis, acne or clogged pores are all commonly seen on fingers, hands and forearms. Protecting the skin from these types of irritants begins by applying a strong hand cream such as Workman’s Friend Barrier Skin Cream. By working our cream into your skin both before and after your work day can help protect your skin from the agents that are known to irritate a welder’s skin.

  • Extreme temperatures: Whether you’re welding outside in the dead of winter, or you’re working next to a blast furnace, even with protective gear, your hands can suffer. Before you step onto the jobsite, apply a thin layer of Workman’s Friend Healing Hand Cream. Then put on your protective gear. Your hands will thank you!
  • Metal Working Fluids: The industrial coolants and lubricants used when working with metal can irritate and damage a welder’s skin. At the end of the day, reach for Workman’s Friend Hand Cleaner with Activated Charcoal. Our revolutionary cleaning formula has strong cleaning power that ensures any chemical residue left on your hands will be removed effectively. Plus infused plant oils will ensure your hands will feel gentle and smooth. 
  • Fragrance-Free: In a job where smells such as paint fumes, solvent residue and smoke can make a welder quickly sick, the last thing you want is a heavily-scented hand cream. Workman’s Friend Barrier Skin Cream is an odorless cream. That means you don’t have to worry about whether your hand cream is adding to a toxic work environment.
