"CrackZapIt! - Gave me the soothing relief I needed for my painful skin cracks..."

CrackZapIt! image

.."HONEY! QUICK!..come'ere and help me snap my jeans!" I was pleading to my wife...

...feeling so helpless because the bleeding cracks on the tips of these two thumbs of mine felt like someone was stabbing needles in 'em!

I desperately tried to snap my pants shut and..just couldn't do it..But I had HORSES to feed!

Now, I don't think of myself as over sensitive...

But like many men and women who work with their hands, whether as a hobby or career, I used to get excruciating, painful finger cracks from my work as a trim carpenter, tile setter, surfboard 'glasser, potter, gardener, painter, and Art teacher over the years.

(And being a sometimes barefoot guy at the beach and in the mountains, I also got painful heel cracks as well.)

Now, however, we live 'out here' in rural Southwest Colorado and raise Alfalfa/grass hay, and pasture a few cows (and Elk and Deer!) from time to time.

Hi, I'm Jackson...

Sandpaper, dust, wood, glue, abrasive conditions, wet and dry cycles...

Drying solvents, moisture sucking clay, and bitter cold in the winter were just 'common' occurrences in a day that I didn't really think about...

but, "Wham!", painful cracks would just seem to spontaneously appear on my fingers.

I put up with it for a LONG time...
...too long!

Skin care lotions and hand creams always gave a moment or two of relief, but they were messy, in big bottles, and usually at home. I tried all KINDS of stuff...even some 'old time' car door latch lubricant...That wasn't what I wanted either.

So I resolved to research skin care - I wanted something that was designed the way it was on purpose, not some 'accidental' toxic junk. (Well, hey, it was GREAT for door latches..that's what it was MADE for.)

I wanted it healthy, non-chemical, easy to apply, conveniently packaged to carry in my pocket, and it had to work... I mean, I was desperate!

Well, it took me over a year to develop a balm that I based primarily on beeswax and a bit of honey along with other, chemical free substances I had researched as possible beneficial aids to healing abraded, cracked skin.

It all needed to blend, be thick enough to fill cracks, and be sticky enough to stay on longer than wimpy lotions so my body's own, scientifically proven healing process could take place...It just needed a little, but significant, help.

Early one Saturday morning, after many experiments in my own kitchen, I carefully warmed up trial #39, and poured it into an empty lip balm tube...I couldn't wait for it to cool down so I could try it.

Finally... it was ready. It felt perfect. Nice and thick. It filled the crack on my left index finger that started from the corner of my fingernail and cut down my fingertip...

..and, thank God, after a minute or two - blessed relief. Eureka! What a simple idea...the thick waxy blend worked on a similar principle as a common band-aid, but without that inflexibility and inconvenience.

I found that if I took the 'trouble' to put it on at least 3 times a day for at least 3 days, my own body could finally heal itself. {;^)

Folks  Who Love CrackZapIt! say, 

"Because it Works!"

"Thank you so much for this wonderful product. As an art teacher and child care giver I was washing my hands quite a bit. It wasn't long before I developed those painful cracks on my fingers. It got to the point where I couldn 't do the crafts I enjoy. I've tried everything but nothing worked until I used CrackZapit! Hooray! I will certainly be spreading the word about this miracle in a tube as I keep spreading it on my sore, cracked digits.Thanks again ! "

-Janet in Philadelphia, PA 

"We purchased CrackZapIt! On vacation this summer at Murdoch's in Craig, Colorado. My husband gets horrible cracks on his thumb and I noticed this at the checkout counter. I thought," Why not? "And purchased a tube. OMG! This was the best purchase ever !! His thumb cracks disappeared within a day. We both used it on our trip through Colorado to Yellowstone and Glacier. We now recommend it to everyone ... Thanks for a great product. "

-Nancy, Omaha, NE, 

"This is the only stuff that worked on my hand cracks .... and I've turned it on to my bartender friends in Mexico Beach, FL and they loved it !!!" (Ed.Note: Yes! It works in humid Florida where folks STILL get finger and thumb cracks!)


"I have eczema on my fingers and I tried CRACK ZAP IT and it was very soothing. It healed up so quickly like magic! It has helped tremendously and I decided to carry one tube in my purse all the time. My husband tried it on his cracked finger tips, it worked great and the result was amazing. We want to buy a few CRACK ZAP IT so we can give them as gifts to our friends and family .... "


" During the winter months, my fingers crack right at the tip on the edge of the nail. In addition to being painful it's hard to do small delicate tasks because of soreness and bandaids. I used CrackZapIt one time and over night my fingers were starting to heal and I could get rid of the bandaids. This is a "must carry in your pocket" for anyone who works outdoors. "


"I carry a tube with me all the time. It's always available to use at any time and really stops the pain of finger cracking. It helps heal the cracks in the creases of my fingers. In the winter time I'm never without it ! "


"Great for those cracks on your fingertips. I love it so much I'm getting some for my mom. Better than anything I've ever tried!"

-New Hampshire

"Heals dry cracked and bleeding fingers like magic. Nothing else even comes close. Its the only way we can get through the winter around here! Don't ever stop selling it please!"


I have found they work best together by applying the CRACKZAPIT first to any open areas, then apply the O'Keefe's. Then enjoy your painfree healing hands! "
