  • Rural Lifestyle 'addicts' Yes, this would be ME and so many more of you! We love it 'out here'! But we are always fixing and improving things around the place and our hands can take some serious abuse! See one of the 30 Murdoch's stores, if you're one like me.
  • Ranchers and Farmers Exactly as above, just bigger responsibilities and a 24/7 schedule to boot!
  • Doctors, Nurses, Dentists, Dental technicians, healthcare providers of all kinds  Wash, work, wash ... rinse and repeat over and over every day!
  • Adventure Racers (which includes a whole BUNCH of kinds of racing) and Mountain Bike, single track Racers.

    These radical 'sporties' are all set up for chafing, wet-dry cycles on their hands and fingers and really need what we have to offer!

    If you're interested in Adventure Racing/Xtreme Sports, Events, Racing Gear, Enthusiasm and tons more! you want to go to Kim's scary site!
  • Painters, both professional and DIY house, car, and boat painters need CrackZapIt! (Hey, I painted all the 'AFTER' walls and painted furniture in these photos).
  • Artists who paint in most any media like oil, water color, acrylic, enamels, you name it, are 'need CrackZapIt!' folks!

    I've painted cars, houses, and been an oil and water color artist...murder on finger skin...

    Dry paint, or drying paint, pulls out fingertip moisture AND thin layers of skin when it's peeled off. Cracks coming?..For sure and for certain!...You need CrackZapIt!'
  • Ceramic artists and Potters. Did it for years as an artist, craft fair exhibitor, school teacher. I'm not sure there IS anything more drying! Who needs it? There you have it!

  • Woodcutters? Who needs CrackZapIt !? I love my wood stove heat in the mountains of Colorado in the Winter ... But I tend to cut my rounds in the Fall, and chop my wood as I need it in the Winter - good exercise, for one!

    But when it's cold, if I have to take a glove off for WHATEVER reason, I have so often had finger cracks develop almost immediately .

    Dry, freezing cold, lack of circulation, you name it; makes me say, "I NEED it!" (CrackZapIt!)
  • Woodworkers Great if you can keep from cuts and splinters, but when it comes to SANDING ... shoot, if you do it, you know how dry it is, you KNOW finger cracks..If you're really blessed, you are one of the 'who uses CrackZapIt! bunch.
  • Construction Workers Ok, we use gloves when we're digging ditches, stacking forms, greasing equipment.

    But when the SNACK truck comes by, or you have to PAY your buddy that little sports bet, or you need a stick of gum or WHATEVER, off comes the glove!

    ... Dry and cold, a few times .. cracks a 'comin' ... Who needs CrackZapIt!? ..
  • Carpenters Inside, where the SALAMANDERS are roarin', you rarely wear your gloves...need I say more in light of the above?

    Outside, or FRAMING, besides being rough work at times, you can't escape being subject to cold.

    And as a trim carpenter doing crown molding, custom built-ins and more, I found that lots of little 'fixes' with shims, glue, sanding, even using 'bondo' from time to time, all took a toll  on my fingers!

    By the way, Gary Allen, at

    Carpentry Tips and Tricks REALLY knows what he's doing and you will benefit mightily from going to his site to get the clues he and I've picked up over many years of blood, sweat, and tears!(not to mention finger cracks!)
  • Gardeners This is a lot like working with clay if you take that glove off!

    I LIKED the feel of the cool, dark earth when I was a landscaper, setting a plant, making a basin, planting a start ..... and

    who can properly wind-proof-tie a young tree with gloves on? Gardeners are 'who needs CrackZapIt!'

    Wet! Dry! The moisture sucking quality of drying wet earth on your fingers KEEPS drying until it SUCKS OUT all the moisture in your fingers .. The gardener who uses CrackZapIt! will convert red (bleeding) thumbs to GREEN (happy) thumbs!
  • Modelers All kinds! Tranes, planes, and automobiles! Paints, glues, solvents, abrading little parts, sandpaper, cuts, this hobby has it all.

    But I love it! And more so now that I have CrackZapIt! I'm a 'who needs CrackZapIt! guy, no doubt! {;>)

    Take  this link to see an R / C, 2 Meter, easy to repair foam, Ready-To-Fly Electric Powered Glider that is a Blast! (like the yellow one on the wall here)

    Go to RC Forums and find the thread - everyone loves it! This was my second plane after teaching myself to fly a Mini-SuperCub!
  • Rock climbers Not my personal cup of cappuccino, but almost all rock climbers use extremely drying rosin powder in order to get

    a firm grip on the rock so they can live to do it tomorrow!

    Oh, and did I say rock by nature is, uh, ROUGH? If you have a rock climbing friend or relative, they'll love you for giving them CrackZapIt!
  • Electricians Haven't been one, but did some of my own wiring for sure. This is one of the most intense 'finger' jobs EVER!

    I know the pros have figured out how to do lots of it with pliers, but still, older electricians, especially, tell me the worst thing after accidentally playing 'Sparky' on the job, is finger cracks!

    A definite 'who uses CrackZapIt!' Group if there ever was one!

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! "
