RE: Allergic to Clay?

Sounds like a good idea, but make sure the lotion is Lanolin free. If
someone is allergic to wool, lanolin (oil from wool used in many skin
products) can cause a reaction ranging from skin reaction to breathing

As far as clay reactions, my knuckles get dry and crack
after using clay, just having it on my hands for 10 min. I'm glad I
teach ceramics anymore!

Whenever I did clay projects, I'd dab a bit of lotion on each student's
washed hands while lined up waiting for the bell to ring. Worked for me
and my students!
