I have suffered with chronic dry skin and eczema all of my life. The majority of OTC creams/ointments/lotions are either ineffective or irritating to my skin. I was delighted to discover the dry skin salve, which is not only effective in maintaining my skin moisture, but it is completely non-irritating as well. Moreover, I use the .6 oz, which is portable! I took it on a trip to Europe earlier in the year, and it was a "skin-saver" for me throughout the trip. Big fan!
