Nurses face so many challenges: overbearing doctors, following a protocol they may not agree with, stressed patients, long hours on their feet.... and extremely dry hands.
The reasons for the dry hands are obvious:
- Nurses need to wash their hands constantly to avoid spreading bacteria and to prevent contamination.
- The hand sanitizers provided at the hospitals are made with ingredients that strip the skin of their natural oils.
- Nurses' medical gloves (latex or powdered) can cause skin allergies.
So when we had a chance to talk to Nicole Whitworth, RN, BSN of www.yournursingtutor.com, we were thrilled that she highly recommended MadeOn Beesilk Lotion Bars for her nursing students' dry hands.
:30 Nicole was pregnant with her 3rd when she decided she was over the pregnancy symptoms and that started her on her crunchy journey.
1:15 She realized all the limitations of modern medicine and sought out better answers with the ingredients she used.
1:50 She started making skin care products from MadeOn's recipe books. She appreciated the information about the ingredients, specifically the hard lotion bars.
2:30 She loved the simplicity, convenience, and the fact that there's no water in the lotion.
3:20 She started making her own products with oils and butters.
3:45 She started a business helping nursing students study and pass their courses. She realized nurses need hard lotion bars.
4:40 The antiseptics the hospitals use are so damaging to the hands of the nursing students.
5:15 Why Nicole prefers the Beesilk Stick over the Beesilk lotion bar.
6:00 She will use the stick religiously on the real trouble spots but she also realizes that the ingredients lock in and protect the skin and it doesn't require a lot of reapplying. She sees how quickly the skin heals from frequent re-application.
7:20 She's been using the products on her son's eczema.
7:40 Kerry recommends a few other MadeOn products for her son's skin.
