This is a liquid bandage with built in antiseptic. It does burn on first contact with an open wound, but delivers such fantastic results. I work in a factory that uses lots of water on the lines and my fingers split at the crevice next to the finger nail. New Skin healed it very quickly and kept it from splitting back open from movement and use of my hands.
Also when I find my nerves getting the best of me I start picking at the cuticles of my fingers and when I apply New Skin it not only helps heal them it also gives me something besides me real skin to pick at allowing my fingers time to heal.
