Hand creams differ from body creams as they need to be more protective and to provide an important barrier against exposure to water, detergents, pollutants and the elements. Olive and Jojoba handcream both moisturises the skin whilst creating a breathable layer which protects the skin from the elements. Furthermore,Thistle oil and Cocoa butter provide nourishment and moisture for the skin. Our rich handcream is boosted with Calendula CO2 extract which is known to sooth chapped or irritated skin and to promote cell regeneration thus helping to repair damaged skin.
The hand cream comes in an airless pump which limits the exposure of the cream to the atmosphere. This protects the potency of our active ingredients, which degrade in the presence of oxygen.

Olive Oil is a classic oil for dry skin. It is an occlusive, protecting the skin against the elements with an oily layer which also helps to keep moisture in the skin. It is also an anti-inflammatory, so it can protect against insect bites and damaged skin.
As the structure of Jojoba Oil closely resembles human skin sebum, it has a natural affinity to our skin. An odourless, non-greasy oil, it penetrates the skin quickly nourishing all skin types – especially dry or mature skin. Jojoba oil is actually a liquid wax and as such it creates a breathable layer which protects the skin from the elements.
Marigold is one of the best known and versatile healing herbs. It is used for its healing and tissue regenerating properties for all skin types and conditions in body care products. It is known to soothe chapped or irritated skin and to promote cell regeneration thus helping to repair damaged skin.
Thistle (Safflower) Oil. This thin, dry oil is obtained from the seeds of the thistle family. It is one of the best sources of Omega 6 and 3 essential fatty acids which make it wonderfully nourishing. It is quickly absorbed into the skin and helps to maintain skin elasticity by enabling the skin to retain moisture thereby helping to reduce the appearance of fine lines.
Cocoa Butter is obtained from the seeds of the cocoa plant. It has a smooth texture and has excellent emollient properties making it ideal for skin care products where it prevents dryness and to moisturize the skin thereby improving elasticity.
Our Simple Botanical cream is packaged in an airless pump dispenser. This is a requirement placed on us by our safety assessor. The pumps limit the exposure of the cream to the atmosphere. This protects the potency of our active ingredients, which degrade in the presence of oxygen.
As a piston is used, which pushes up the contents from the bottom of the container, they dispense more than 95% of the cream, significantly reducing waste.
When you first get the container, you need to prime the pump. Simply turn it upside down and tap it with your hand or on a soft surface a few times. This gets the cream flowing.
If there are any problems, these are normally due to air bubbles in the mechanism. Simply 'burp' the pump by priming it again. If problems continue push a paper clip into the small hole at the base and push up the piston.
