description

Skin Salvation 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.

We’ve 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 Intensive Moisturising Ointment (chamomile, calendula, nettle and chickweed) but in this case as wonderfully potent macerated oils rather than tinctures.

The cream is especially useful for those who need to wash their hands often throughout the day or whose hands come into contact with harsh detergents, allergens or irritating chemicals that can leave skin sore, dry or cracked, or 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 a fantastic daily face cream, if you want something a bit more luxurious and rejuvenating than our Daily Moisturising Cream.

Skin Salvation 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 Intensive Moisturising Ointment.

Suitable for all ages and skin types, including babies from 6 weeks.
Cruelty-free and suitable for vegans

It’s 99% natural

To reduce the risk of sensitive skin getting irritated or flared-up by synthetic ingredients, the hand cream contains absolutely no fragrance, parabens, PEGs or petrochemicals

It’s intensively nourishing

The pure botanical ingredients we use provide the essential vitamins, EFAs and nutrients the skin needs to support its natural cycle of cell regeneration

It locks in moisture

The cream supports the healthy maintenance of the skin barrier function to preserve moisture; dehydrated cells can lead to skin damage and damage can lead to itchiness

It softens rough skin

The cream works as an emollient to improve the elasticity of the skin, keeping it supple, smooth and healthy
