Product Description

Cruelty Free. Gloves In A Bottle is 100% paraben, phthalates, triclosan, sodium lauryl sulfate (SLS) / sodium laureth sulfate (SLES), formaldehyde, toluene, propylene glycol, gluten, dairy, wheat, soy, peas, peanut and all other nuts, animal products and cruelty free. It is dermatology tested and prescribed, hypoallergenic, non-comedogenic (will not clog the pores), no added fragrance and colorant free and every ingredient is on FDA’s most safe list.

Gloves in a bottle (GIAB) is not a Barrier Cream but falls into a category of skincare called Shielding Lotions and can help improve sore, dry and cracked skin. Recommended by dermatologists for eczema, psoriasis, dermatitis & diabetic foot. Ideal for very frequent hand washers – parents with babies & toddlers, chefs and caterers. Those having to use alcohol based hand sanitizers and surgical scrubs at work – carers, nurses, doctors, healthcare workers, vets. Those exposed to water and chemicals regularly – hairdressers, barbers, beauty therapists, nail technicians, cleaners, florists, potters, swimmers. Those working outdoors in tough conditions; gardeners, farmers, dog walkers, car washers, construction workers, engineers, mechanics. It bonds with the outer layer of skin cells creating a hydrating protective shield.

Won’t wash or rub off but comes away naturally with shed skin cells after 2-3 hours. Skin can still breathe but water, soaps, detergents, chemicals, alcohol gels, dirt & grime etc… cannot penetrate the shield and so the skin is protected. At the same time the natural oils and emollients in the lower layers of skin get a chance to build up so the skin becomes naturally moisturised over 3-5 days. Traditional moisturisers send a message to the skin that it has plenty of moisture and actually cause the natural generation of oils to shut down. GIAB allows skin to work harder at making its own moisture providing a long term solution to sore dry cracked skin. GIAB – IT KEEPS THE GOOD STUFF IN AND THE BAD STUFF OUT!

A suitable hand lotion for men, due to lack of greasy feel and it being fragrance free.

Gloves in a Bottle – What is a shielding lotion?

Wash hands/skin; dry; apply small amount; work in well, especially on knuckles and around nails, and allow to dry completely. Reapply every 4 hours for continued protection. Under the constant protection from the shielding lotion, your own natural oils and emollients in the lower layers of skin get a chance to build up so the skin becomes naturally moisturised over 3-5 days. GIAB allows skin to work harder at making its own moisture providing a long-term solution to sore dry cracked skin. Think about where your hand actually needs moisture added – is it the back of the hand only, or the palm only or both? Sometimes the perception of ‘it feels greasy’ comes from applying product where it is not required i.e. the palm in many people.

  1. Stuart

    Since using this product, the dry and cracked appearance of my hands has vastly improved; they are less cracked, and the skin is certainly softer and more supple.

  2. Vidas

    It formed a very good protective layer; applying the cream before working meant that washing off any accumulated dirt was made a lot easier.

  3. Bob

    Once worked it into the hands, the product feels virtually undetectable. After only a few days, my hands were no longer dry. In fact, they felt a lot smoother.

  4. Eileen

    This is an amazing product – hours after applying it you can still feel that protective shield working away.

  5. Deborah (verified owner)

    I found the product very moisturising & protecting no dermatitis since using & reapply 3 times a day washing hands at least every 1/2 hour if not more & using gloves for washing up dishes.

  6. Ken Hare (verified owner)

    My wife swears by this when she’s gardening

  7. Ana Jackson (verified owner)

    Excellent product! I am a medic and do art as a hobby and I am constantly washing my hands-even more so during COVID 19. I had started to get small, painful cuts on my hands. Apart from being painful, I was concerned about risk of infection. Gloves in a bottle sorted that out in a matter of a few days. I don’t think I’ll be without it ever in the future. Delivery was very quick and customer service excellent! Thank you Clare.
