hoof black disaster! HELP

While putting away a bottle of hoof black (by absorbine) it exploded all over my hand. I used all of my absorbine linament stuff that I had to remove it from the bathtub, but there's still some left.
I tried
nail polish remover
Hydrogen peroxide
rubbing alcohol
Baking soda
Shampoo and conditioner
And trued scrubbing.
Does anyone have tips to get rid of this stuff?!

The company has an 800 number. Call it. It should be on the can ( or another one that you can still read.)

I just looked at their website. Here is their contact number:

I`d give mineral oil or baby oil a try. You might also want to try a scrubbing pound designed for mechanics - it`s gritty put gets the job done; it can be purchased at places that sell parts, tools, etc.
