    Question Anyone here use Corn Huskers?

    I just had a client tell me about this "lotion" she uses called Corn Huskers--it apparently used to be called "Italian Balm" and is a product with a lot of history, around 60+ years. Now, obviously I have very dry skin and am interested in it simply because she described it helping her chronically dry skin...but also, after doing a bit of research, I've seen that people are also using a smidge on their hair and scalp. It seems the main beneficial ingredient is bag balm? It is also described as being oil free, and rather than a traditional lotion cream, it looks clear, like a serum. It's available on Amazon. What do you guys think? Anyone use it, for your hair or anything else?

    No clue on hair or scalp, but my Dad worked with his hands and a tin of Bag balm and a bottle of Corn Huskers lotion were always near his bedside table. The corn huskers is very thin but he used it a lot for his hands and it seemed to work well.
    I hadn't thought of it in forever, but I think I may get myself a bottle since my hands are horrible lately and it'll be so nostalgic for me.

    If it ends up on my hair, I'll report back. Lol

    I used to see that in the medicine cabinet as a kid (alongside the green tin of Bag Balm)! I never knew what it was for. My dad also worked with his hands and would get painful bleeding splits in his finger and thumb.

    Corn huskers doesn't contain bag balm or even similar ingredients. Corn huskers is a good lotion, I imagine it could be useful for fly aways
