Are you scratching dry, red, and sore hands? Do your hands work hard and need a little somethng back?
This Hemp & Aloe Salve is an anti-inflammatory, emollient blend, suitable for all skin types. It uses Hemp (cannabis sativa) wax instead of beeswax, so is vegan friendly. Lemongrass essential oil has a fabulous lemony aroma that is naturally astringent & anti-fungal.
This is a super softening hand treatment, excellent for nail health (just rub into those cuticles and nail bed), and can be used on any localised areas of problem skin generally.
Unrefined Hemp Wax is rich in Omega 3, 6 & 9 & ceramides believed to be lacking in dry, excema skin, Aloe Vera extract aids damage repair. With Blackcurrant Seed, Apricot Kernel, Shea & Cocoa Butters and Organic Coconut Oil.
As with all of our products a little goes a long way. We recommend applying to the back of your hands and wrist at any time for soothing, softening protection. But as it takes around 10-15 minutes to sink in fully only apply to the palms and insides of your hands when you are relaxing and have a few moments to rest. Even better, apply, protect with cotton gloves overnight and see and feel the difference in the morning.
Ideal for gardener's, potters, jewellery makers and people who have especially hard working hands.
We advise avoiding extremes of temperature as the Shea Butter & Coconut Oil are naturally inclined to get slightly grainy if they get hot and then cold. This is not a product fault and you will find with gentle motion it will melt directly on contact with your skin.
