Press about Gloves In A Bottle

Southern Boating, January, 2006
It's a fact that working on a boat engine can be messy but wearing gloves isn't always practical.

Here's a neat solution – Gloves In A Bottle is a shielding lotion that is rubbed onto the hands like a sunblock, but in this case the product forms a bond with the top layer of skin to prevent grime and chemicals from soaking into your skin.
The formulation doesn't wash off, but sheds off as your skin cells do.

Standard latex gloves keep hands free of grease and grime, but often end up ripping or bunching up. Not so with Gloves in a Bottle.

It pours on like lotion and bonds to your outer layer of skin, holds up through tough jobs and washes off with a good scrubbing.

Successful Hunter, Jan/Feb, 2005
I live in dry, desert country. Even in wintertime there's little moisture in the air. Although they're usually protected by gloves, my hands dry out in cold fall and winter winds, leaving them painfully cracked.

The same thing happens when retrieving decoys from ice-rimed ponds. No matter how you try to avoid it, your hands get repeatedly soaked by freezing water. You end the day with dry, cracked hands.

Gloves In A Bottle is a lotion designed to work like an invisible pair of gloves. It's supposed to protect against irritants while allowing your skin to retain its own natural moisture.

"Unlike artificial moisturizers. Gloves In A Bottle bonds with the outer layer of skin to turn it into what works like an invisible pair of gloves,'' the company claims. "These 'invisible gloves' keep irritants at bay while helping retain your skins own natural moisture, resulting in skin that is better hydrated than what is achieved by conventional lotions."

Here's how it works: According to the company, the outer layer of skin basically consists of dead skin cells that protect the living cells in deeper layers of skin. The outer layer must stay moisturized to protect the deeper layers.

To prevent moisture from leaving the protective outer layer, the skin produces natural oils. These oils also help protect against irritants you come in contact with. Washing with soap or exposure to chemicals am remove these natural oils.

When natural oils are stripped from the outer layer, Gloves In A Bottle, Inc., says moisture quickly leaves this layer, leaving the skin dry and itchy. The lower skin layers are left exposed to harsh substances like solvents, gardening chemicals, dirt, grease, etc. The result? More dry, irritated, chapped, cracked skin.

The company points out conventional hand and skin lotions replace natural oils with artificial oils that do little to heal the skin. It claims regular use of lotions can actually cause the skin to produce less natural oils.
These claims sounded good, but I'm a born skeptic. When I rubbed the thick, white lotion into my hands, it quickly became transparent. There was no oily or greasy feel in fact I quickly forgot I was wearing "liquid gloves" as I went about my chores at home.

One of the claims I hoped to test was that the lotion prevented the absorption of smelly, potentially damaging substances into the skin. With this in mind, I purposely allowed some gasoline to slosh over my hands when I filled the lawn mower. Gasoline-doused hands typically retain an unpleasant stench even after frequent washing. I sometimes spray my hands with deodorant or rub a little toothpaste in to cover the smell.

After mowing the lawn, I was happily surprised when a quick washing with soap completely eliminated the gas scent. Later, I tested this property further by cleaning some just-caught trout while wearing Gloves In A Bottle. Once again, briefly washing my hands rid them of the fishy smell. Wow!

Pete Grimaldi, the company's marketing director, tells me applying Gloves In A Bottle to your feet can help prevent blisters. That thin, invisible layer of lotion apparently offers some protection against abrasion. My feet have seldom (actually, never) blistered, so I haven't tested that claim.

After wearing Gloves In A Bottle while testing guns under a blistering desert sun, I can report that this lotion appears very effective in preventing dry, cracked hands. Once you apply the lotion, there's nothing to remind you it's on your hands. You quickly forget about it. How do you remove it? The lotion simply wears off in three or four hours, so that's no problem. Just remember to reapply when you spend the day hunting, shooting or fishing outdoors.

I never expected to become excited about hand lotion, but this stuff works! It's available in many drug and sporting goods stores at $12.95 for an 8-ounce bottle.

Is Your Work and/or Play Ruining Your Hands?

Gloves in a Bottle may help those "Boater's Hands"

Conventional lotions only attempt to replace natural moisture with artificial moisture but it comes off every time you wash. Gloves In A Bottle is a lotion that turns your outer layer of skin into what works like an invisible pair of gloves to keep the moisture robbing irritants out while retaining your own natural moisture.

When you know you should be wearing gloves, whether boating, fishing, painting, gardening, or exposed to harsh elements, but don't want to put any on because they are annoying, wear Gloves In A Bottle.

Many workplace and household chemicals are absorbed directly into your skin, causing skin disorders or just plain dry cracked skin. Also, when participating in outdoor activities from fishing to camping, gardening to painting, or exposure to harsh weather, you are further drying and irritating your skin. Until now, all one could do to alleviate this condition was apply conventional lotions - artificial moisture replacement systems.

Conventional lotions only attempt to replace natural moisture with artificial moisture. The problem is they come off when you wash or touch something.
Additionally, in order for any moisture to actually improve a dry skin condition it needs to get below your second major layer of skin. In reality the only moisture that is going to reach this level is your skin's own natural moisture.

Additionally, when you apply artificial moisture to the skin's surface you may be sending the wrong message - that your skin is being adequately moisturized, when in fact it is actually dehydrated of natural moisture. This often results in reducing production of natural moisture, which is vital to abate a dry skin condition.

Unlike artificial moisturizers. Gloves In A Bottle bonds with the outer layer of skin to turn it into what works like an invisible pair of gloves. These' "invisible gloves" keep moisture robbing irritants out while helping to retain your skin's own natural moisture, resulting in skin that is better hydrated than what is achieved by conventional lotions.

Gloves In A Bottle is virtually undetectable once dry, lasts four hours or more, and comes off naturally with exfoliated skin cells. Gloves In A Bottle is available at 9000 pharmacies nationwide.

Second Skin

Working on or around boats requires being exposed to the elements and getting into some dirty stuff that can wreak havoc on your skin.

If you've ever scraped barnacles, sanded a hull bottom, winterized an engine during the colder months, or applied antifouling paint, you get the picture.

Any one of these can leave the outer layer of skin on your hands and/or knees feeling like sandpaper by the time you've finished. There is a solution, however.

Next time try Gloves In A Bottle, a greaseless, hypoallergenic, nonsticky lotion.
It bonds with the outer layer of skin to keep moisture-robbing irritants out while retaining your skin's natural moisture and oils, turning it into, well, a pair of invisible gloves.

I tried it and found that a single application is virtually un­de­tect­able once dry, protects skin for a minimum of four hours, and comes off naturally.

The eight-ounce bottle retails for SI2.95 and vields 120 applications; it's available at pharmacies nationwide.

These "gloves" keep moisture-robbing irritants out while helping to retain your skin's natural moisture.

The American Quarter Horse Journal, March, 2004
Do conventional lotions leave your hands feeling oily when applied only to wash off and leave your hands dry?

If so, try Gloves In A Bottle.

It lasts up to four hours, is almost undetectable and comes off naturally. Consult your local pharmacy about availability.
 
Ontario Out Of Doors, Winter, 2005
Fishing and hunting are hard on your hands. They get dirty, wet, and then dry out and crack. When you clean fish or field dress game, you also risk picking up germs and bacteria.

Rubber gloves can help protect your hands from these, and standard lotions help remoisturize your skin, but Gloves In A Bottle actually seals in your skin"s own moisture, preventing de­hydration, says the com­pa­ny, and protecting it from moisture-robbing ir­ri­tants.

I tried it while cleaning fall perch – always good for wrinkled, dry hands after­wards and small knicks from sharp fins.

I was sceptical, because the product dried quickly and was undetectable (non-greasy). It seemed like an ordinary hand lotion. After I finished filleting fish, though, my hands washed clean easily and unwrinkled, and dried as soft as.... well you know the old cliche. I've since used Gloves In A Bottle when field dressing waterfowl and deer, with the same results.
By the way, a little of it goes a long way. Washing your hands s with anti-bacterial soap before and after you handle fish or game also helps protect you from germs. Hospital-strength products are recommended. New Dial Complete, for example, is said to be ten times more effective than other liquid hand soaps at killing staph, strep, E.coli, and Salmonella, but is easy on the hands. It's available at many major supermarkets and drug stores.

Suggested retail is $2.97 for a 7.5-ounce pump bottle. In Ontario, Gloves In A Bottle is sold $ at some pharmacies, hardware, paint, and craft stores (call 1-800-6001881 for the nearest source).

Suggested retail is $7.95 for a 2-ounce bottle and $16.95 for 8 ounces.
