What We Say:
Your hands are one of the first areas to show signs of ageing and are also subjected to daily wear and tear. This rapidly absorbed, wax based cream is perfect for use throughout the day and will not leave your hands feeling oily or sticky.
Chamomile has been used for generations and is one of the most widely used botanicals. Recognised for its antiseptic and healing qualities it is also carminative, emollient, and anti-inflammatory. The oil contains 'azulene' which helps to reduce puffiness and lifts impurities. Chamomile oil also has great wound healing properties and is extensively used to treat skin problems such as rashes, acne, eczema, psoriasis, hypersensitive skin and allergic conditions. Other compounds found in camomile oil help to strengthen the skin and reduce redness.
Calendula has a long history of use as a wound-healing and skin-soothing botanical. This lovely marigold like flower also has anti-inflammatory and weak antimicrobial activity. It is most often used topically for lacerations, abrasions, and skin infections.
