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 have chosen aluminium packaging for our hand creams because it is attractive and completely recyclable. Aluminium is light (so is better for the environment, compared to us posting out heavier glass bottles), it's strong (the bottles are more durable and will usually survive a drop on a hard floor whereas a glass bottle would shatter) and aluminium is not affected by essential oils. Please note that each bottle contains as much cream as we can fill it with before adding the pump attachment. The cream typically weighs 95-97g - any more and the bottle will overflow when the pump is added. Please do not purchase the refill bottle unless you have already purchased one of our pump attachment bottles - you need to have a strong pump that's the correct neck size for these bottles to dispense the cream since the bottles cannot be squeezed.
PUMP ATTACHMENT BOTTLE - presented in a 100ml aluminium bottle with a silver metal and plastic pump attachment The bottle will arrive with the pump head down in the locked position, so you press down slightly and twist the pump head so it can be used. The pump head can be locked again by pushing down and twisting - so this is a nice no-leak pump design allowing you to take the bottle out with you / on holiday etc. If you like our hand creams, please re-use these pumps a few times - it's so much better for the environment.
SCREW CAP REFILLS - Local customers are able to return their bottle to our shop for refills. Website customers now have the chance to purchase a refill bottle, supplied with just a screw cap. You simply remove the pump from your old bottle and attach it to the new bottle and begin to use your cream as usual - it's better for the environment since you'll be re-using the pump attachment again. These are lovely aluminium bottles that can be re-used once you've used up your hand cream. Simply wash with hot soapy water (they can also be cleaned in a dishwasher), dry the inside carefully and then the bottle can be re-used and closed with the screw cap that arrived on the refill bottle. Aluminium bottles are great to use as a blender bottle when you add essential oils into a carrier oil, or take it to a plastic-free shop so it can be used for refills. If you decide not to re-use the bottle remember it is made of aluminium so it is completely recyclable. Aluminium can be melted down and re-used indefinitely making it one of the most eco-friendly cosmetics packaging materials.
