Martial Artists Hand Balm?!

Duke Cannon Supply Co Bloody Knuckles Hand Repair Balm is probably the first hand repair balm I’ve ever seen developed for Martial Artists (or fighters, hands-on hard workers, and “world champions” at least.)

We often joke about the white marks we leave on heavy bags…because basically that “white” is our skin!  While we aren’t making ourselves bleed (it happens from time to time, but this isn’t Blood Sport!) our hands do get very dry…as do our feet.

In Martial Arts, we are often in close quarters – for me that means we all need to be even more conscientious. Hygiene *should* (let’s hope) be a top priority anyway, but at the Dojo, it is especially so.  Lanolin is one of those ingredients known to be ultra moisturizing, even in the tough cases – I wouldn’t use all forms of it on my face, necessarily, but for hands, elbows and feet, it’s brilliant.

Per Ulta (including the jab at Bag Balm):

Details:

Dry, cracked hands are like living testaments to a man’s hard work and ingenuity. And while hard-working hands are to be celebrated, let’s be honest; dry, cracked hands feel awful. That’s why Duke Cannon introduced Bloody Knuckles Hand Repair Balm. Made with lanolin, it provides much-needed moisture without leaving the hands feeling sticky or greasy (like that stuff in the green jar.)

At 5 oz., this is a hearty serving that will last a good long time. Formulated to repair the hands of workers, fighter, and world champions.

Ingredients aren’t too lengthy, and have several super hydrating substances:

Ingredients:

Water, Glycerin, Stearic Acid, Shea Butter, Emulsifying Wax, Caprylic/Capric Trigliceride, Cetyl Alcohol, Dimethicone, Tribehenin, Allantoin, Jojoba Seed Oil, Tocopherol, Lanolin, Carbomer, Ethylhexylglycerin, Phenoxyethanol, Sodium Hydroxide.
I haven’t seen this in store, and do make a habit to carry around a heavy-hitting hand cream with urea in my bag, but I may snag some should I come across it – lord knows it will come in handy (no pun intended!)
