"It's March 5th and my hands feel like sandpaper. Now what?"

by Nina Myers McCammon


Can anyone else relate? During the first polar vortex I religiously slathered on hand cream and when the weather rose to a balmy 35 degrees a few days later, I felt like if that had been the worst of it, I could easily make it to March. No problem. And then the second vortex hit. And the third. Once the fourth sucked us into its arctic death grip, I watched my once soft hands wither into two sheets of scratchy paper and become legitimately capable of sanding down our teak coffee table (I mean, you may as well kill two birds, right?). And then I remembered Worker B, a three-person company from Minneapolis, Minnesota. I met these guys several years ago at the International Gift Fair in NYC, and was immediately impressed that they hand-crafted each product in small batches and performed all sourcing, manufacturing, and distributing themselves. No small feat. Plus their products contain no alcohol, which explains why they're so effective in hydrating skin. Rescue Putty, their strongest formula, remedies not just cracked skin but also hives, burns, bug bites, and eczema. Check 'em out!
