Shea Intensive Hand Balm

DESCRIPTION

Formulated with 25% shea butter to provide intense nourishing care, the Shea Intensive Hand Balm forms a protective film for dry to very dry skin. Enriched with allantoin, a naturally moisturising and regenerative ingredient, this ultra-rich balm absorbs into the hands when applied and massaged in. Use as a daily hand cream, or twice-weekly as an intensive hand mask by applying a thick layer to hands and leaving for 10 minutes before massaging excess into the skin.

ADVICE

For daily use: warm a generous amount of balm between the hands, then gently massage into the palms, back of the hands, nails and cuticles (twice a day).

As an intensive mask: apply a thick layer to the hands and leave on for 10 minutes to intensely nourish the skin, then massage in any excess (twice a week).

SHEA BUTTER

Karité trees are scattered across the landscape of Burkina Faso, where the hot harmattan wind blows down from the Sahara during the dry season. To protect against this arid climate, locals use the rich Shea butter extracted from the tree nuts – and have done for generations. It soothes, protects and moisturises their skin and hair even in the driest conditions. The exceptional qualities of this unique African nut simply can't be denied. Our founder Olivier Baussan met with the female Shea farmers of Burkina Faso back in 1982 and right away, a beautiful relationship was born – making them the first of our suppliers outside of our region. Working alongside them, we've built a supply chain that's fair and sustainable, and protects their traditional farming methods. In return, we have access to some of the finest Shea butter and use it to enrich our products with luscious, buttery hydration. This intensively moisturising collection is designed with sensitive and dry skin in mind, to give it extra nourishment during harsh winters and dry summers. Shea butter is rich in vitamin A and fatty acids and has anti-inflammatory properties. We’ve harnessed these qualities to produce a range packed with creams that can leave hands, feet and faces feeling supple and youthful.   Shea Butter

    I love this hand cream! I use it every night before bed and wake up with soft and supple hands. I also use it on my feet which always works wonders. Undoubtedly a desert island product.

  • It works

    I don't have very dry hands but after trying in shop, Realized a little of this makes my hands very smooth. I tan easily and this just gives the right moisture to make my hands glow. I normally use the almond and still do, but this is for an extra boost (especially after housework). It smells great too. Would like to see it in a smaller size for travelling please.

  • I've never had anything this good before!

    My hands are always pretty dry and my lovely 4 year old granddaughter reminds me of this every time she holds my hand. Well I've been using this cream for a couple of weeks now and today she said to me 'grandma your hands aren't rough any more'! She's right! I put it on at night and let it soak in, in the morning there is no residue which washes off under the tap, it has all gone in! The moist feeling lasts for days, so really you only need to use it a couple of times a week. Absolutely fabulous cream!
