Heel Chemistry is a lotion by Deciem’s The Chemistry Brand that can be used on the heels and other areas that are very dry. This formula claims to hydrate cracked skin and provide hydration below the surface to improve hard skin, while providing a cooling effect, with results within 2 weeks.

Heel Chemistry contains a marine complex proven to improve skin texture and hydration and counteracting extreme dryness. Calendula provides healing and regeneration for short term and long term results. This does not contain urea or acids.
Directions: Apply to dry areas twice a day for 14 days and then as-needed thereafter. This can be used on heels, hands, elbows, knees and other very dry areas.
This is a thicker cream that has a minty scent. It is not oily or greasy. It absorbs after a couple seconds and has a cooling effect from the menthol and menthyl lactate.
I have very dry feet and heels with layers of hard skin on my heel and a callous on my big toe. I used Heel Chemistry twice a day all over the feet for about 17 days and once a day for the remainder of the month.
I didn’t take a photo at 14 days, but there was improvement in hydration and the rough feeling of the skin.
At one month, my skin felt softer, more hydrated and the roughness was gone. The callous on my big toe was more hydrated and softer, but still felt thick.
Heel Chemistry comes in a 100 mL tube and lasted me one month, using as above. I hope Deciem makes a larger size at some point. Once I ran out, after a couple days, my heels started getting a bit drier and a bit rougher. Overall, the results are pretty great and I will repurchase.
Thank you for reading.
