Farm Hand is a concentrated salve, designed to protect hands exposed to harsh conditions. Filbert's add a little more wax (25%) to this than their regular Hand Salve (21%), to increase the level of protection. The oils nourish (rapeseed is a natural source of Vitamin E) and the wax forms a protective barrier. They maybe should have called it Builder’s Salve, as it’s appreciated by those who work with lime and cement. Users also tell them it deals with splits on the side of fingernails and some have found it soothing on dermatitis.
HOW TO USE Use at the start and the end of the working day. Highly concentrated, so apply sparingly to damp or wet hands after washing. Can be used neat as an ointment for minor cuts and grazes, or as an intensive treatment for the hands. When used neat, allow 10-15 minutes for salve to be absorbed. Contains no water
