You can see the difference… Jergens Lotion stops “detergent hands” (1956)

The photo tells the story! This picture is unretouched…to prove to you that Jergens Lotion works.

447 women took a test. They soaked both hands in a household detergent three times a day. They put Jergens Lotion on their right hands only. In a few days, their left hands were red and coarse — their right hands, treated with Jergens, were smooth and white. The hands shown in this picture are typical.

Jergens: The healer (1967)

Jergens Extra Dry Skin Formula is not an ordinary lotion. It is an extra strength dry skin treatment. That’s why it starts healing instantly… softens and smooths extra dry skin faster and more effectively, despite weather, wear and years. That’s why only Jergens Extra Dry is guaranteed to help heal skin damaged by drying heat and cold in 8 days — or your money back. That’s why it’s rightfully called the healer.
