Intensive Hand Salve
Winter can be cruel on the hands. In fact, life in general can wreak havoc on our skin - think how many times a day we put our hands in water, expose our skin to the elements, never mind those doing heavy manual work.
Just the smallest dab of this intensive salve will provide instant relief to the driest, most chapped skin.
What's in me?
- Sweet Almond Oil (organic): this mild, hypoallergenic oil, rich in Vitamin E, makes skin softer, reduces wrinkles and is a great emollient
- Coconut Oil (organic): coconut oil can reduce the severity of bacterial and inflammatory skin conditions, such as eczema and psoriasis. The lauric acid it contains has restructuring properties that protect skin and make it soft. It also helps maintain healthy PH levels in the skin.
- Rosehip oil (organic): a skincare superstar, rosehip is full of vitamins and antioxidants that help nourish skin, and reduce scars and wrinkle lines. Its essential fatty acids are also brilliant for soothing skin redness.
- Beeswax: beeswax is an absolute magic potion when it comes to hand cream. It’s packed with natural emulsifiers to keep your skin moisturised and free from chapping and cracking on those dirty, damp, windy winter days.
- Shea Butter: packed with essential fatty acids and vitamins such as E and A, our raw shea butter is great at nourishing your skin. It balances and hydrates, as well as being a great natural anti-inflammatory. Shea butter is also great for dry skin conditions due its strong moisturising properties.
Grapeseed Oil: this light, easily absorbed oil contains vitamin E and linoleic acid, and is a powerful antioxidant. It can help soothe and nourish the skin while also reducing fine lines and wrinkles
- Vitamin E: a great antioxidant to support and repair your skin. It’s also anti-inflammatory to help reduce swelling and puffiness.
- Lavender: the soothing, calming, anti bacterial, anti inflammatory, anti aging wonder oil! It helps prevent and heal blemishes, and reduces the appearance of red patches, age spots, skin discoloration, fine lines and wrinkles
