Handmade natural skincare - aromatherapy hand cream with organic shea butter
These are lovely light hand creams which have been formulated to provide long lasting hydration, without feeling heavy or sticky when applied to the hands. Only a small amount is needed, and this should be smoothed onto the hands, where it will sink in quickly leaving a light aromatherapy fragrance. Our hand cream feels light and non-greasy when it's applied, but leaves the skin feeling soft and silky.
We now have 2 packaging options for these hand creams:
Plastic tubes - a squeezable 30g white HDPE tube (great for carrying in your handbag and fully recyclable). Please note that these HDPE tubes are refillable, so are a good choice for local customers who can drop their empties back into our shop so we can re-fill them with more hand cream.
Aluminium tubes - we're trialling these squeezable aluminium tubes, as a more eco-friendly alternative to plastic tubes. These are like old fashioned toothpaste tubes, so are made from recyclable aluminium with a plastic screw top. You squeeze them from the crimped end and then fold over the metal as you use up the cream. Once the tube is empty, the aluminium can be recycled.
Please note that this type of tube packaging is easily damaged when it's empty (the aluminium has be thin, so it can be squeezed). We fill the tubes with at least 32g of cream and they are then crimped. Some tubes may have the odd mark/indentations in the metal, but this has no impact on the strength of the tube. (We think it's better for the environment that we use these tubes, rather than throw they away un-used).
Our travel sized hand creams are available in the following aromatherapy varieties:
Exotic Rose - a lovely rosy blend that includes geranium, palmarosa, rosewood with a hint of rose essential oils.
Happy - our popular blend of geranium, grapefruit and cypress essential oils.
NEW! Inspire - a soft clean aroma of herbaceous rosemary and lavender softened with uplifting citrus notes of neroli and mandarin with rosewood.
