5 reasons to love our Hand Creams

By Olivia Carlin

5 Min Read

Regularly washing our hands has never been so important. But excessive cleansing can leave our hands feeling sore, sensitive and in need of a little TLC. Infused with naturally nourishing and skin-soothing ingredients, discover five reasons why our signature Hand Creams should become your go-to blends for softer, smoother skin. 

1. Kind to skin, kind to the planet

Not only are our cruelty-free hand creams kinder to your skin, but they're also kinder to the planet too. Each and every bottle of our hand cream is widely available to recycle, and this is part of our wider plan to move towards using 100% PCR (post-consumer recycled) material in all of our bottles by 2022

2. Lock in moisture 

Did you know adding a little moisture to your skin can help extend the fragrance of your hand cream? Pair your favourite hand cream with the gentle cleansing lather of one of our hydrating Hand Washes or triple-milled Soaps to keep your skin feeling softer, smoother and delicately scented for longer.

TOP TIP: Allow your skin to absorb hand cream more quickly with the gentle exfoliating properties of our Wheatgerm & Vitamin E soap, enriched with natural Oatmeal to give your skin a gentle wake up call.

3. Naturally nourishing

We're committed to using natural ingredients wherever possible across all of our formulations. That's why you'll find skin-soothing ingredients such as Aloe Vera leaf juice, Vitamin E and Shea Butter extracts inside all of our Hand Creams to help hydrate, nourish and protect your skin's natural moisture barrier. 

4. At-home hydration 

Whether you're working on the front line and seeking a moment of R&R or adjusting to spending more time at home, create your own at-home spa experience with a simple hand care ritual to follow before bed. 

Begin by taking a few deep breaths, paying attention to your breath, the gentle rise and fall of your body and allowing your mind to focus into the present moment. Then, using your thumb or forefinger to gently press in a circular motion, gently massage a layer of our Hydrating Hand Cream into the skin to help ease any areas of tension. After a few minutes, wear a pair of gloves before you drift off to sleep to help lock in moisture and allow our naturally nourishing blend of active plant ingredients hydrate and repair overnight.

5. Don't just take our word for it

I cannot tell how utterly divine this product is. It smells amazing and is lovely on the hands. It soaks in to the skin easily, leaves them feeling soft and smelling amazing. I shall be ordering more immediately.
