Hand and Nail Cream
This luxurious hand and nail cream combines coconut butter, cocoa butter, shea butter and Wonder oil (organic sesame and organic peanut) to produce a rich, hydrating, protective hand and nail cream which moisturises at a deep level.
Active ingredients include Urea, folic acid and zinc, sodium phosphate
It is made from high quality ingredients and contains no harsh chemicals or toxic substances and so is highly tolerable for even the most sensitive individuals.
The butters used in this Hand and Nail cream are organic coconut butter, organic cocoa butter and organic shea butter. These butters ensure a high level of hydration making the skin feel very soft and smooth. These butters are moisturising, protecting and healing for the skin, especially for dry and damaged skin. The cocoa butter in particular is very protective for the hands. Shea butter contains 5 to 10% phytosterols which stimulate cell growth. All the butters contain high percentages of saturated fat (coconut 92%, cocoa 60% and shea 50%) and as such they provide high levels of hydration for the skin.
The Wonder oil containing sesame oil and peanut is a light, easily absorbed oil and is a rich source of antioxidants. It has a good balance of linoleic and oleic acids.
Urea is the body’s natural moisturiser, this maintains fluid homeostasis especially in the skin. The urea in the Hand and Nail cream is synthesized from ammonia and carbon dioxide. This is very softening and moisturising.
Folic Acid and Zinc is incorporated since this is used in the regeneration of cells for the skin, nails and cuticles.
Sodium phosphate is added to the cream as this brings more energy to cells. It is a major component of energy production and as such is highly beneficial for the hands and nails.
The organic aromatherapy oils of rose, grapefruit and vetivert give a pleasing, balanced fresh, floral perfume.
