Untreated dry skin can lead to ulceration particularly on diabetic feet with loss of sensation.

"I am writing to tell you how much I love your product "Gloves In A Bottle". As a person with very dry skin (think sake scales falling from nylons at the end of the day) and as a diabetic, I have searched all over for a hand care product that would keep my cuticles uncracked, and my hands soft and not old looking – well, I found it all in your product!

I had back surgery in February of this year, and every time I used it, there was at least one nurse or health care worker with her hand out for some! As someone who thinks that there is not enough good feedback about products and services these days, it is my pleasure to award you my personal "Best News Ever!" prize... and my sincere thanks for a great product, at a reasonable price, that actually does what it claims to do!

Again, thank you VERY much – I know I'll be a very willing repeat customer!"
