"Robert's hard working comfrey root hand salve" AKA comfrey salve:) Robert's testimonial(via e-mail):

"I work in live theater as a stage hand. There is a lot of lifting, pulling and carrying. The environment can be a toxic nightmare, with paints, heat, theatrical smoke, various fire retardants, and dust. I wear gloves when possible, but inevitably my hands come in contact with heat, harsh chemicals,
and rough surfaces.
I have developed calluses on my hands. They used to harden, and then crack, often painfully. I have started using your comfrey root hand salve on my hands
at night. I apply a thick coat, and then wear light cotton gloves to bed.
I have been using the salve for a few weeks. I still have the calluses, but they are softer and no longer crack. In addition, the salve is soothing when my hands are dry. I would recommend your hand salve to anyone whose hands are exposed to a harsh working environment. I have tried many commercial hand creams
over the years. Your hand salve really works."

BTW, my husband says the same thing. His calluses do not crack, using this salve....

the famous face cream


My iodized creams lose their color very quickly upon standing. Iodine loses color as it adds to a carbon carbon double bond. More info here:


The iodine salve retains its color as the iodine is not truly bound to the fats, it's just mixed really well so that the oils and iodine do not separate. In the creams I use an emulsifier which truly binds the oil and water ingredients.
