Because of the formulation, Salty Britches® is super robust. It will last all day for ocean play, ultra and endurance exercise, or working in the heat. It does not turn "mushy" or breakdown. It is NOT a lubricant. It's designed to be a barrier.
I never thought to use Salty Britches® for my dry hands. Like a ding-dong, it didn’t even occur to me. I had not thought about Salty Britches® being for anything more than preventing chafing from the salt water in the summer. Duh. Several friends had discovered its power for winter skin relief and started posting about it. Only then, did I decide to try it. Ding-Dong.
