Balmonds – Intensive Hand Cream
or 4 fortnightly payments of £2.75 with More info
Intensive Hand Cream is a deeply nourishing but wonderfully gentle cream that Balmonds formulated to keep hard-working hands healthy and hydrated. The soft, shea butter-based cream works both as a protective barrier against environmental irritants, and as a super-nutritious boost for skin that needs extra help, feeding it with the essential fatty acids and vitamins it needs to maintain its regular cycle of regeneration and repair.

Balmonds have designed this hand cream it to be mild and un-fragranced so you can use it as often necessary without worrying about further irritation from synthetic ingredients. Rich in hemp seed oil and blended with Roman chamomile essential oil, it uses the same four skin-kind herbs we use Balmonds Daily Moisturising Cream and Skin Salvation ointment (chamomile, calendula, nettle and chickweed), but in this case as extra potent macerated oils rather than herbal tinctures.
The cream is especially useful for those who need to wash their hands often throughout the day, or who come into contact with harsh detergents, allergens or irritating chemicals. These can leave skin sore, dry or cracked, and can aggravate conditions such as hand dermatitis, psoriasis or eczema. Care workers, health professionals, gardeners, climbers, mechanics, parents: this one’s for you!
Sea buckthorn berry oil this incredibly rich little berry is a superfood containing massively high levels of Vitamins A, E, C and Omegas 3,6, 7 & 9, perfect for fighting the effects of ageing and skin damage
Shea butter: produced by a women’s collective in Burkina Faso, our shea butter is a wonderful natural moisturiser that softens, hydrates and feeds the skin
Macerated oils of calendula, nettle, chickweed and chamomile herbs which have been used in traditional herbal medicine for centuries for their skin-kind properties
Organic hemp seed oil is a highly nutritious skin food, rich in EFAs and brilliant at improving the skin’s ability to retain moisture
Roman Chamomile essential oil sweetly smelling and notoriously calming, this oil has traditionally been used to soothe inflamed and reddened skin
It’s also rich and gentle enough to make a fantastic daily face cream, if you want something a bit more luxurious and rejuvenating than Balmonds Daily Moisturising Cream.
Intensive Hand Cream is totally free from parabens, petrochemicals or perfumes, which makes it perfect for dry skin and is also suitable for people who may be prone to hand dermatitis, eczema, psoriasis and dry, sore, itchy skin conditions.
For a more intensive emollient, especially if your hands are cracked or raw from itching, we would suggest you use Balmonds beeswax-based Skin Salvation intensive moisturising ointment.
