At Outdoor Hands, LLC, our mission is to create products that make a difference!
It all started when Austin Gore, a clinical pharmacist, began looking for an effective remedy for his wife, Michelle’s hands. They always cracked in cooler weather; none of the products she tried helped. After many tries, he came up with a formula that healed her cracked hands in a matter of days. All of the botanicals used in formula have proven healing power, but when he combined them, they were especially effective. As a result of this success with his wife’s hands, he began offering the lotion to other family, friends and patients who suffered with cracked hands. When they also saw successful results, he knew he was on to something.
It was not until he received an unexpected call did they consider bringing this formula to a broader market. That call was from a well-known professional bass fisherman and host of several shows on the Outdoor Channel. He had been given a sample of Austin’s cream by a friend and was amazed at the results. He urged Austin to consider marketing the product. He said,
I make my living in the outdoors, and my hands pay the price. Outdoor Hands Skin Therapy Cream is the only product I’ve found which actually heals my cracked hands. It also prevents chafing and windburn on my lips and face.
Austin and Michelle decided to take his advice and, teaming up with Robert & Patricia Fine, Outdoor Hands, LLC was born in Augusta, Georgia in 2007. They knew there were already a lot of lotions on the market. So their idea was to create a niche for Outdoor Hands Skin Therapy Cream beyond the traditional lotion market. So, while Outdoor Hands Skin Cream will work for anyone, it is particularly targeted at people whose hands crack and dry out because of their occupation, hobbies or environment. People who may not use lotion at all or are unsatisfied with the results from those they have tried.
To reach these people, we distribute Outdoor Hands Skin Therapy Cream through outdoor stores, nurseries, hardware stores, hobby stores, sporting goods stores, automobile parts stores, paint stores, and various other specialty stores, as well as pharmacies and a few grocery stores.
With the growing popularity of Outdoor Hands Skin Cream, we have added several additional products since 2007. Before we launch any new product, however, it has to meet the goal of all our products—it has to “make a difference”!
So, first we added Li’l Pucker’s Lip Cream. It is a cream for lips similar to the skin cream but with a slightly different formulation.
Then came Outdoor Hands Pain Therapy Cream, which is a topical analgesic cream for chronic muscle and joint pain. The cream is made with capsaicin and utilizes nanotechnology to provide time-released relief for 6 hours or more.
Next came Outdoor Hands Poison Ivy Scrub. It is a gentle exfoliate which works quickly to reduce the itching and redness from contact with poison ivy, oak or sumac by washing away the urushiol oil that causes the reaction.
Finally, our newest product, which we just launched, is a new lip balm called Outdoor Hands Lip Therapy. We think of it as lip cream in a stick. Like Li’l Pucker’s Lip Cream, its soothing formulation heals and soothes cracked and chapped lips. We made this product for people who prefer a convenient balm in a propel/repel tube.
With this expanded product line, in 2014 we moved our operations from Augusta, Georgia to larger facilities in Aiken, South Carolina. That sounds like a big move but, in reality, it is only about 30 miles! From this new location, we continue to work on creating new products to help with everyday problems.
At Outdoor Hands, LLC, we offer quality products that really work. We want everyone who buys any Outdoor Hands product to be completely satisfied. If for any reason you are not satisfied, we will refund the purchase price of the product. Please feel free to contact at any time with any questions or concerns.
