I am a dentist and obviously wash my hands many, many times a day; with this I am in and out of latex gloves constantly. This keeps my hands dry and susceptible to cracking and irritation especially in the winter months. I keep Porters on my desk and use it often. I have found it to be the absolute best solution to taking care of my skin without the typical greasy film left by most moisturizers. I also am an amateur mountaineer with the severe exposure that goes with time in the back country. I’ll often coat up with Porters before I leave and immediately apply to all exposed skin once I get back to “civilization”. Two thumbs up!!

Just a note to thank you so much for Sweet Porters! For years during the winter months especially, I was in a lot of pain because of deep cracks on the tips of my fingers and the heels of my feet. Your lotion has solved the problem! No more cracks and no more pain! My skin is very dry, and living in eastern Oregon in the high desert only compounds the dryness. I have tried everything, but nothing worked until my husband found your lotion on the Internet and decided to buy some for me to give it a try. Thanks you! Sweet Porters is the best!\

After years of having a problem with my scalp and getting various prescription items to alleviate the problem I finally got relief by using Porters Lotion sprayed on my scalp and leaving it for about half an hour...then washing the hair with Portors liquid soap. First time was amazing...lotion and soap rinsed out of my hair quickly leaving it with more body than I have ever had...soap rinsed out immediately...you only need to use a tiny amount. I also experimented with the hand soap when I ran out of the liquid soap and it worked equally well...itchy scalp under control...I told my dematologist about it and he said that the old time soaps did not contain all the gunk that the present day soaps contain. My husband uses it as well and we both use the lotion after bathing...itchy skin a thing of the past. I first started using Portors for painful cracked nails about three years ago...within a few days the "cracks" started to clear up. AMAZING...We are Portors fans.

Porter's Lotion is my ONE beauty product that I could never live without!! I have the softest skin!! I think I have been using it for at least 10 years, and I hope and pray that they NEVER stop making it!! All their products are great, but the original lotion is my true love!!
Theresa Pyle. Sherwood, ARI found Porter's when I Googled 'split fingertips'. Lot's of people offered remedies but Porter's was the most recommended. That was 3 years ago and I have been a customer since. A customer without split thumbs. My favorite product is Sarah's Facial Moisturizer, it's so silky, and Bug Barrier is a must have here in New England. I have shared you with my family and friends. I would encourage everyone to try your products.

I just received my Porter's Lotion and, believe it or not, my huge, painful crack on my thumb is FINALLY healing (already!) My hands feel so good, for the first time since our Maine dry, cold weather began. Thank you for bringing hope to my life!!

I wanted to write you personally and tell you all how amazing your lotion is. It really does work! Of course you know this, but for a family who has tried everything you can imagine, it's a miracle! My step mom found out about your product in a magazine & ordered it for my Dad. He works out doors everyday as a contractor & works on our family ranch. His hands were always cracked, chapped, and so painful. They are now healed. They have recommended it to everyone they know. My son, who is 2, had a rash on his chin we couldn't get rid of. I started putting the lotion on it and it went away...within 2 days. I stopped putting the lotion on his chin, and the rash came back! Your product is amazing. Please don't ever ever stop making it!!!
Good morning, Porter's. While undergoing thirty-three radiation treatments for breast cancer in the last few months, I have discovered that Porter's Lotion was the ONLY product to nourish and sooth the large radiation field. Dana Farber Cancer Institute supplied a list of their approved moisturizers and anti-redness products which included Lubiderm, Nivea, Eucerin, Shea Butter, Calendula Cream, Aquaphor and Hydrogel/Radiacare Gel. I used several of these products, repeatedly, daily, for weeks and without success. I finally switched to my Porter's Lotion, which I have used on my face for several years now, and within forty-eight hours, my skin was healing and the redness diminished. I have continued to use your product, four weeks after having completed radiation treatment and am still reaping benefits. Thank you for this wonderful product. As I continue my cancer recovery, I will continue my skin recovery with Porter's lotion, although it is not recognized as "conventional" treatment.

Porter's saves my skin. The air is so dry in Alaska's arctic, both summer and winter, that I'd be an itchy mess without Porters. Regular hand/body lotions just don't cut the mustard. I'll be leaving for Alaska in April and plan on spending both summer and winter there this year. That is why I ordered two 32 oz bottles (and treated myself to the Sweet Porters this year too!). You might tell him to get a small spray bottle with a top to carry with him in his pocket and he can use the Porters at regular intervals during the day (using a sprayer controls the amount better). Then he should use it on his hands liberally before bed. Here I am telling the experts how to do it!! Ha ha. But that's just what I do with my Porters. I just couldn't live without my Porters. It's the only thing that keeps my skin in good condition and without being greasy and getting on my clothes or bedding. You can even use it a lot and not get your gloves all greasy. It's the best. Oh, and tell him that I got my husband the Porters aftershave because his face was looking chafed and dry. My husband doesn't use aftershaves and perfume-y products, but he loves his Porters and his skin looks great since he's been using it. I work in Coldfoot, Alaska. It's the farthest north truck stop in the US and we have a 126 room Inn, cafe, gas station in the middle of nowhere at the foot of the Brooks Range. I am the Postmaster, manage the retail area, tour guide, and Jackie of all trades.
Hello, I have suffered with very dry skin in the winter for all of my 58 years. I tried every lotion, cream, soak, scrub, and vitamin to no avail. Then my son recommended Porters. Nothing, NOTHING has ever made my skin feel smoother, softer and flake free like Porters. It's truly magic. Thank you, THANK YOU for my first suffer free winter EVER! I will use your products for the rest of my life. Joe Hopkins Arlington, TN I am so thankful I found your web site. I am under a chigger attack, My first ever, and the lotion is helping me to keep my sanity. Thank you, I will be so happy when it arrives as the bottle I now have is almost gone.
