HOW DOES IT WORK? Gloves In A Bottle® bonds with the outer-most layer of skin cells, reducing natural moisture and oil loss, the leading cause of dry, cracked and irritated skin. Conventional moisturizers only attempt to replace the skin’s natural moisture with artificial moisture, but they only mask these symptoms and do little to nothing to actually resolve dry skin. In order for any moisture to be effective in resolving a dry skin problem, it needs to get below the second major layer of skin. The only moisture that is going to be able to get to that level in sufficient quantity is the skin’s own natural moisture.
