Smooth Skin

From Jane Gordon, Camarillo, CA

FMy little Hairless rat boy is all healed up and the scab on his back is now gone. The Olives in bowl bath in Skin-So-Soft must have helped. I have had no skin irritation problems with my other older Hairless rat or my new baby Hairless girl. To keep their skin lubricated, I am rubbing a small amount of light olive oil into my own palms and then handling them so they get just a light coating rubbed in. I’m doing this for my Hairless cavy as well. I think the olive oil is a much more natural lubricant than any commercial human skin lotion that has all those additives we can never pronounce! So far, they’re looking good! *
