Intensive Hand Cream
is a deeply nourishing but wonderfully gentle cream that we formulated to keep hard-working hands healthy and hydrated. The soft, shea butter-based cream works both as a protective barrier against environmental irritants, and as a super-nutritious boost for skin that needs extra help, feeding it with the essential fatty acids and vitamins it needs to maintain its regular cycle of regeneration and repair. Designed it to be mild and unfragranced so you can use it as often necessary without worrying about further irritation from synthetic ingredients. Rich in hemp seed oil and blended with Roman chamomile essential oil, it uses the same four skin-kind herbs we use in the Daily Moisturising Cream
and Skin Salvation
ointment (chamomile, calendula, nettle and chickweed), but in this case as extra potent macerated oils rather than herbal tinctures.
The cream is especially useful for those who need to wash their hands often throughout the day, or who come into contact with harsh detergents, allergens or irritating chemicals. These can leave skin sore, dry or cracked, and can aggravate conditions such as hand dermatitis, psoriasis or eczema. Care workers, health professionals, gardeners, climbers, mechanics, parents: this one’s for you!
It’s also rich and gentle enough to make fantastic daily face cream if you want something a bit more luxurious and rejuvenating than our Daily Moisturising Cream
Intensive Hand Cream
is totally free from parabens, petrochemicals or perfumes, which makes it perfect for dry skin and is also suitable for people who may be prone to hand dermatitis, eczema, psoriasis and dry, sore, itchy skin conditions.
For a more intensive emollient, especially if your hands are cracked or raw from itching, we would suggest you use our beeswax-based Skin Salvation
intensive moisturising ointment.
Suitable for all ages and skin types, including babies from 6 weeks.
Cruelty-free and suitable for vegans
