As my kids would say “Raise your hands if”… you get dry skin? I would definitely raise my hand and so would my husband. I use my hands constantly in the garden, around the house and customizing American Girl Dolls. All of these activities leave my hands dry. Like most mom’s today I also want to live a more natural lifestyle and be a good example for my kids. So how do I get everything I want? Enter Zim’s Crack Creme. They are a natural herbal skin cream company.
Zim’s is based out of North Lima, Ohio and has been around for 60 years. I love supporting US companies so this checks off a third box for me. Their creme has a very light herbal smell. The main herbs listed in their short ingredient list are bay leaf oil, Aloe Leaf juice and Arnica. So Bay leaves and aloe are pretty well know but what in the world is Arnica? I had to look it up online b/c like most mom’s I want to be informed on what I’m putting on my skin and in my body. Arnica is a type of sunflower which grows mostly in Westen North America. It is used alot by athletes b/c it helps reduce inflammation from bruises. Neat right? I keep it on my desk so that I can use it several times a day. I love how it makes my hands feel silky and soft.
My husband loves the Max Crack creme which is a liquid on his feet. They are super cracked b/c he suffers from diabetes. He says it really makes them feel better and the fact that it’s liquid makes it spread easily over a larger area. It contains Arnica and Myrica oils.
You can find Zim’s in most major retail stores. They carry other products like crack creme with hydrocortisone which can be used for poison ivy, poison oak, sumac, insect bites and dermatitis. With summer right around the corner I’ll be grabbing a bottle of that for sure. If you like to shop online you will want to visit their website right now b/c they are having a sale. You can save 15% off of their products by using the code APR16. You can also stack the coupon code with their other sale of Buy 1 Get 1 free hydrocortisone and aloe gel! Score.
Now for some exciting news….Zim’s has offered to host a giveaway on my site for just my readers. They are giving away 1 Crack Creme and 1 Max Crack Creme just like I received. All you need to do to enter is click on the buttons below. Good luck!!
