Are you fed up with the smell of silage on your hands? Are your hands engrained with dirt stuck in your skin? The Scottish Farmer has been talking to Swarfega about their new limited-edition TOUGH range, which, it says, is a solution for your skin.

Since 1947 Swarfega has been cleaning and protecting the hands of the hard-working people of this country. To celebrate Swarfega’s 70th birthday, it has launched a limited-edition range called TOUGH by Swarfega which brings the best of Swarfega to the next generation of farmers.

In collaboration with key distributor, Kramp, the TOUGH products have recently been tested by six farmers, going head to head with life’s daily challenges such as the engrained smell of silage, where the products scored an amazing 4.5/5 at removing the smell from their skin.

Chris Brooks, from Swarfega, explains why: “The use of Swarfega’s carefully crafted skin care system provides protection and cleansing that prevents damage to the skin.

“People often think that giving their skin a good scrub will sort out the problem, however, this often leads to worse results as hard scrubbing damages the skin, making it even easier for contaminants to enter the skin the next day.

“This is often compounded day after day, and can result in acute dermatitis or even an allergic reaction.”

The skin care system starts with the pre-work cream, which provides a protective layer, helping to prevent physical contaminants and micro-organisms from entering the skin.  Not only does this layer help protect skin, it also makes the skin easier to clean with less aggressive cleansers. Matched up to the TOUGH cleanser, this system will help keep the hard-working hands of farmers healthy.”

The TOUGH by Swarfega Heavy Duty Hand Wipes also scored highly with the farmers for removing the smell of silage, scoring 5/5 for the removal of dirt and stains.

In the range are five fantastic products that will help to protect and clean the skin, including:

Hand Cleaner: This handy 250ml tube of hand cleaner is perfect for people on the move, it’s heavy duty and takes no prisoners; grease, grime, silage and slime don’t stand a chance. Kind to skin but tough on dirt, it provides a deep clean leaving hands feeling firm and fresh.

Skin Protection Cream: hands and arms work hard, using protection cream strengthens the skin, improves grip, provides a barrier against contaminants and means people can get on with the job in hand and limit the risks of debilitating skin conditions. The Tough skin protection cream is suitable for a wide range of work place conditions and comes in a 100ml tube.

Shower Gel: a refreshing way to wash the day away. Not all shower gels are made equal, the Tough Shower Gel is dual action, suitable for getting rid of hard to shift grease and grime from hair and skin to leave users feeling fresh. The 250ml tube is big enough to last, small enough to carry around.

Hand Wipes: these are heavy duty, textured hand wipes that can be used anywhere, anytime. With no water required, these are a must for people on the move. Every container can be re-sealed ensuring each of the 70 wipes is fresh and ready for the challenge.

Sun Protection: SPF30 high performance formula means 30 times the skin’s normal protection against the sun’s damaging UVB rays. This formula withstands heavy perspiration and immersion in water. It’s suitable for regular use and will not affect grip on hand held tools. Each tube has 100ml of cream and it’s perfume free, keeping skin safe without smelling like a Pina Colada.
