This absotively kopasetic hand cream & mask is not just for actual fingersmiths (…nor does Lily encourage or condone criminal behaviour of any kind; just look at her frown!…). Our goal was to formulate a hand cream that would leave your hands soothed and protected and with a lasting soft velvety and healthy feel. And we firmly believe to have succeeded.
Shea butter, the main carrier in this cream, is a superior active moisturiser known for its abundance of helpful ingredients, including vitamins, minerals, proteins and a unique fatty acid profile said to restore the skin’s natural elasticity and enable it to absorb moisture from the air, keeping skin moisturised for longer. It is complemented by camellia oil, which is known for its highly restorative, rejuvenating, anti-aging and moisture-retaining qualities.
Geranium essential oil has a reputation for its restorative qualities, especially in helping to fight dermatitis and eczema. Rosemary derives its name from Latin, meaning “Dew of the Sea,” and its essential oil adds to the soothing scent of this cream. It is also known historically as a powerful oil for moisturising dry skin. The final touch is a dab of Helichrysum italicum essential oil. This precious and powerful essential oil is highly valued by connoisseurs for its reputed extraordinary healing and rejuvenating powers.
You can use this cream in small amounts as a hand cream as needed. If you wish to give your hands a full-scale spa treatment, we recommend using it as a hand mask. Apply a generous amount of the cream and don a pair of cotton gloves (such as are available from pharmacies) for at least 20 minutes (or overnight) to allow the cream to do its magic. For even better results, consider applying our “Bee’s Knees” Nail & Cuticle Balm before applying the mask.
All the oils in this product are certified-organic. The essential oils are therapeutic-grade. We use unrefined, fair-trade, certified-organic shea butter.
We use certified-organic, vegetable-based and palm-oil free glycerin. As this is a water-oil-based cream, we use Emulsifier O (cetearyl olivate & sorbitan olivate), which is derived from olives, and we use Geogard 221 (benzyl alcohol & dehydroacetic acid) as a preservative (a must-do in any cosmetics containing water), which is approved for use in organic products. Both are Ecocert approved.
