What a brick you are Richard, thanks so much. Fancy getting an email from the boss, very impressive. It is the most brilliant product, like the new Face Cream too. My partner has worked on the market for years selling oriental rugs and kilims, and in the process suffers very badly from cracked thumbs, the weather etc.. Your cream is brilliant for this, and especially for my (former) cracked heels.

I have worked in the Nuclear/Chemical industry for the last 19 years and have always been plagued with dry skin. More so in the last 7 years, as at the plant I currently work in I have to wear heavy PVC chemical grade gloves all shift. I have tried virtually every hand cream on the market and even some on prescription but nothing has been particularly effective.
My wife attended the recent Your Horse Live show where she came across your Beeswax Barrier Hand Cream and bought me a 2oz pot to try.
I have been astounded by the results!!!!
The cracks on my hands (13 at the last count) healed in just over a week and no-

Split and cracked hands from Mike Gerrish…
..."I bought this product from you a couple of weeks ago, after everything else I have tried over the years to sort out splits and cracks in my hands had failed to deliver. And the results from your product were, without exaggeration, simply astonishing.
Within three days the splits had healed and inside a week the deeper cracks were sorted.
I cannot recommend it highly enough -

"It is quite marvellous and I am so pleased"…
I am writing to tell you how wonderful I found the Beeswax Barrier Hand Cream you sent me. I had very sore hands with splits in the skin, mainly on the joints of the fingers and my palms and the tips of the fingers which gave me great agro during the day but also during the night.
I had been to the doctor about it and anything he gave me seemed to damage my skin worse. I have never had anything like this before in my life. I cannot be sure what caused it but I do run the home, washing and washing up etc. and love gardening, but I have always done these things and never had any bother before.
But then I read your advertisement and phoned you and you kindly sent me this wonderful, easy to use cream. I used it straightaway and within a very short time the cracks began to heal.
It took about 5 weeks to clear. It was quite amazing and such a relief to be able to use my hands again normally without protecting them with gloves all the time when doing cooking, kitchen jobs and gardening.
I could hardly believe it. Only a small amount was needed each time I used it and I still use it daily, putting on a little first thing in the morning.
I use no other cream now, keeping well clear from the usual hand creams all of which contain oil-
IT IS SO MARVELLOUS AND I AM SO PLEASED.
Many, many thanks.
With all good wishes.

Many shooting seasons past have been spent shooting and picking up with my springers. Whilst each passing season has brought much pleasure, each one has also brought significant discomfort from sore and chapped hands until last season when I started to use your Beeswax Barrier Hand Cream after reading a magazine feature.

Last year I purchased your cream and it worked almost immediately in reducing pain and healing cracks. Also I have found it most beneficial for use on my knees which suffer due to my having to spend a lot of time on them when caring for giant tortoises.

I must write and tell you I found your Beeswax Barrier Hand & Foot cream excellent. I had very bad hands. They were very sore with dry skin and they were splitting and bleeding. I tried all hand creams, other creams also antbiotic creams off the doctor of no avail.
I tried your cream after reading an advert and within 2 weeks my hands were better. I would recommend it to anyone to try
From David by email...
At the Herts County Show I was somewhat cynical when I saw “Cracked Hands & Feet Healed in 10 Days”.
Having tried many “cures” in the past I decided to give it a go. After 10 days the improvement was obvious and after a few weeks the cracks had healed completely. I will continue to use the cream as a barrier in future.

I am absolutely delighted with the foot cream and like another of your customers it took 5 weeks to really make a difference.

Debbie’s husband is a builder...
As discussed on the telephone, my husband suffered from cracked hands as a result of building works. He has tried many different creams and nothing worked. We saw your cream for sale at the county showground in Malvern. Within a week of using it his hands had healed. It really is an amazing cream and well worth the money.
Sore feet and legs
Hello richard I just had to write to tell you how amazing I have found your cream. Until I tried it I was on three types of medication for various skin problems. 1) Diprobase cream for my feet. 2) Diprosalic ointment for my ankles and legs. 3) Betnovate RD cream for my hands and elbows. All the above were on repeat prescriptions. They never cleared the problems up, they just stopped the problems getting any worse.
I was on the cream for over two years until I was recommended to try your product. I was sceptical but went ahead and tried it.
I could not believe it. After ten days of using your cream the problems started to go away. I am now completely free of skin complaints. I still use your cream two or three times a week just as a safeguard. I have recommedned it to many of my friends who have tried it with the same results as me.
You have a truly wonderful product there and I would think many people including myself owe you a big thank you. I still order the beeswax cream with the travel tub every couple of months. Once again thank you for supplying such a wonderful product . As they say on the TV -
Yours faithfully, Peter Porter-
Note from Richard Starkie: Peter phoned me one day and said “You’ve transformed my life!” He told me he had to sleep with his hands feet and legs in polythene bags for two years. Can you imagine how thrilled he was when he spoke to me?
So please write to us if you have a story to tell, even if it isn’t as dramatic as Peter’s.

Every summer when socks are no longer worn my husband has always suffered very badly with cracked heels. Not only do they look unsightly but were also very painful. Not any more. He has been using Starkie’s Beeswax Barrrier Hand Cream and what a difference it has made to his feet!!! It has put a spring into his summer feet!
What a product and the pot lasts well into the winter, making it also excellent value. He now has feet which look and feel younger than the rest of him! Many many thanks, Jane. (By email).

Working at our local hospital and constantly washing my hands, I have suffered dry cracked skin on my hands for years. I have had countless prescriptions, tried all creams, expensive and reasonable but nothing has worked. However my recent order I received has resulted in a complete recovery. Thank you so much, I am delighted.
Eczema from Alison Adkins…
Just to say I think the cream is amazing. I have tried everything going on my daughter's eczema. Her hands are particularly bad as she is around horses a lot and this aggravates it.
When I bought the cream at this years horse show I didn't expect the results that I got as after 12 years of trying everything and seeing a lot of skin specialists, I didn't actually think there was much hope of finding a cream without steroids that would make such an amazing difference.
Whilst at the show, I gave the small tub to my brother in law who also suffers from eczema and he is just as pleased with it as I am. Alison Adkins

The beeswax barrier hand cream worked wonders on my sore chapped hands. I’ve had eczema since birth and it’s difficult to find a product suitable to clear it until I found this cream. It’s truly fantastic! I strongly recommend it to anyone with the same problem. (By email).

I have suffered all my life with asthma and eczema and having very sore hands which are cracked and incredibly itchy, making all sorts of jobs impossible ie. washing up and gardening and also not being able to bend my fingers.

How fantastic is this cream, my hands are moist, crack free and just lovely.

I have had eczema on both my hands for 12 years, which makes my knuckles split and bleed resulting in not being able to bend my fingers and would take weeks and many plasters before they would heal. I have used different creams and steroid creams from my doctor which would only help for a few days. I then saw the advert for Starkie’s Beeswax Barrier Hand Cream in my husbands shooting magazine and thought it was worth a try as nothing else had worked.
Well to my amazement I noticed the difference on the first day of using the cream and here I am 7 weeks later, I have not had any splits on my hands since. My family and friends cannot believe the transformation in my hands.

Just to say many thanks for the sample of your Beeswax Barrier Hand Cream enclosed with our recent order.
Although we only use hypoallergenic shampoo for dogs, Andy developed a sore rash on the sides of his hands. We tried several different hand creams without success, but on receipt of your sample within two days the rash had disappeared. We now both use the cream daily with no more problems.

Horse's heels from Karen Corr…
I just wanted to let you know how we have been getting on with the Beeswax Cream for one of our horse's cracked heels.
We have been battling with this problem for 2 months now… and we have tried every cream available on the equine market. Everything I've used seems to clog the skin and attracts mud and dirt!
What I've been looking for was something which is actually absorbed by the skin and doesn't leave a residue, plus works as a waterproof barrier.
Your Beeswax Cream does what it says on the tin!!
Our mare's heels are finally crack free. The cream is readily absorbed and (her heels) are really nice and supple now. So are my hands and nails… after applying it to her I've been using the cream too.
Thanks again for supplying such a great product… Regards, Karen Corr.

I bought your Beeswax Barrier Hand Cream last October at Bisley and I have found it to be excellent.
For some years I have had split hands and fingers on my right hand which meant I had to use plasters when playing golf.
Since using your cream my hands have been perfect and I haven’t had to use a plaster all winter.

On being diagnosed with diabetes -
Diet and medication were quite straight forward but foot care was not so simple. I spent months buying rasps and ineffective expensive foot creams. The creams were in small tubes and did not do what they promised and ran out very quickly.
I saw your advert in Horse & Hound and sent for an 8oz Tub.
I can recommend it to anyone especially diabetics. My husband also suffered from split hard skin around his thumb nails when working outside and they have healed completely. Thank you.

Dear Mr Starkie,
I wanted to write and let you know how very helpful your Beeswax Barrier Cream has proven in my work as a professional painter and decorator.
Paint technology has moved on tremendously in recent years and there are now paints on the market designed to stick to difficult(ie Plastics, Formicas etc) surfaces together with vinyls that resist rubbing down when cleaning off scuffs and marks.
They are all very helpful to the decorator but getting these coatings off your hands at the end of the working day can prove difficult.
This is where your cream has been very useful as it provides a protective barrier film on the skin stopping these coatings, whether oil or water based, from really taking hold. It allows quicker clean up time as prolonged soaking or scrubbing is not now necessary.
As a bonus the conditioning element of the cream prevents my hands drying out. As any decorator will tell you your hands take a pounding while washing down, sanding and handling chemicals.
Before coming across your barrier cream I used to have dry rough hands with cracked skin around the nails. My lady friend said it was like being rubbed down between two sheets of sandpaper, which is fine if you’re a piece of wood, but not so clever when they snag the wife’s new nylons!
Lastly, on a point of health, long term contact of petro-
An excellent product that is cost effective (a little goes a long way).
Many thanks, Yours sincerely, Michael C.
I have been plagued with dry skin and a cracking palm on my left hand for the past 30 years. Attempting to do any woodwork or DIY has always resulted in painful splitting and open wounds. Having tried every cream and or medication over the years to no avail.
However, after being bought a jar of your Beeswax Barrier Cream at a country show, the immediate improvement was amazing. I have been using the cream for a month now and my hand is smooth with no cracked or rough skin.
I would not have believed it could have healed so quickly and so completely.
This cream is truly amazing and very economical, as you only need to use a small amount to get results.
