THE EYE: Jack Black Hand Healer

4002_HandHealer_b_hrweb Dry hands are the worst. With the elements of everyday life circling around us, the last thing we consciously think of, is taking care of our hands. Unless you work with them. Chefs use their hands all day everyday, and half of that time is spent washing them. Food is the ultimate pleasure for a chef and creating amazing dishes for people is only the icing on the cake. Chef's hands don't receive that much praise. From slicing and dicing, prepping for dinner service, or cleaning the kitchen spotless after dinner, chefs hands are always busy.

Jack Black, premium quality high performance, easy to use grooming products for men, have got hands covered. Their Industrial Strength Hand Healer with Vitamin A & E  helps heal the toughest of hands. Particularly tested for chefs and other heavy duty industries such as golfers and carpenters, and it works wonders for people who wash their hands very often.
