Suffering from dry, scaly skin? We've all been there but five local pharmacists have developed a line of products they say will heal, soften, and replenish our skin.
"It's very therapeutic, it's not a typical fru-fru hand lotion, it's a treatment," says Michele Bradley of Clinic5.
Bradley says for years, people have walked into the pharmacy, asking her to recommend an effective healing cream for dry skin and for more serious skin ailments, but she never thought there was anything sold over the counter that could do the job.
"All five of us have a combined pharmacy experience of over 100 years so we thought we'd put that to good use and formulate this product, to help a lot of people that have serious issues with skin, cracked heels and bleeding hands," says Bradley.
More than a year ago, Bradley, Nancy Shickles and the three other Clinic5 owners were all laid off from the pharmacy where they worked. The women who had become close friends were determined to stay together. The five were eventually re-hired at another pharmacy and then decided to create Clinic5.
"This is a little bit of a different formulation then we used to make back at our old employment...we've modified a little bit, added scents and we have a foot cream also," says Shickles.
Clinic5 is making its debut at the Boone County Fair but the owners are hoping this will be the beginning of a strong and profitable Stateline business.
Stacy Jones, Gail Jones and Colleen Bumgarner are the other three Clinic5 owners.
