CHARLESTON, S.C., Dec. 17 Life can be painful andunsightly for the men who work fixing the buses for school children inFlorence, South Carolina. Bleeding, cracked, dry hands have actually forcedthese men to be laid off from work. These rough and tough guys, employed bythe Dept. of Transportation, are now talking about a beauty hand creme thathas made it possible to return to work, enjoy their jobs and stop the pain.

According to Jenny Lynn Fogle, Owner of Palmetto Specialty Products inColumbia, S.C., who works closely with these men, "They have cracked-openhands, bleeding, chapped to the point they can't even hold a tool their handsare so messed up."

Bill Stubbs, a 30 year bus mechanic from Florence, says, "As a mechanic,you would think that all that oil and grease on your hands is going to keepthem smooth, but it doesn't. Our hands are sore and cracked. If it gets realbad, we miss work."

Fogle worked with Charleston, S.C. based skin care company, L'Athene,whose founders are registered nurses and skin care specialists. Together theydeveloped a protocol for bus shop mechanics in South Carolina, to use productsfor their hands, on a trial basis.
