‘Editor’s Pick’ by the Green Parent Magazine Natural Beauty Bible 2018 and Highly Commended by Natural Health Magazine International Beauty Awards 2018 in the ‘sensitive skin range’

Our butchers love to use the Silky Hand Cream, fragrance free to protect their hands from the brine and cold wet conditions and it occurred to us that they need something richer which creates more of a barrier – so we developed this cream.

This cream is perfect for anyone who frequently washes their hands, uses harsh cleaners or wipes, or has particularly dry hands, as the rich combination of oils with the honey and beeswax not only moisturises deeply but the beeswax creates a lovely silky emollient cream. We have combined the oils with soothing and calming Calendula oil for those who have eczema and sensitive skin.

Like the Calendula Cream every ingredient is gentle and petrochemical free so perfect for young skin and we’re awaiting the certification for this to be also called our Happy Nappy Cream!

Calendula, the marigold flower, has been used for generations and is known to be beneficial for treating any skin inflammation including chronic conditions such as eczema, psoriasis, rosacea, acne and any type of dermatitis. We have soaked the almond oil with marigold petals to infuse the goodness into the oil.

This cream was trialed for more than 18 months – only on our human friends of course – and the responses have been incredibly positive.

4 reviews for Intensive Care Hand Cream with Calendula Honey and Beeswax

  1. Excellent cream. I’ve been trying loads of different hand creams and finally found the right one. I don’t like to feel creamy hands so this is perfect as it absorbs instantly and you don’t feel grease palms. As I wash my hands 100 times per day, a cream is mandatory and this is the one. I like the 35 ml tub format so it would be ideal a 100 ml tub format. Very satisfied.

    • so pleased to hear your comments Vania, we made it especially for people who have to wash their hands repeatedly for work as the extra intensive beeswax and oils combo offers more of a barrier – we’ll look at a larger tube too

  2. (verified owner)

    My hands can get very dry (especially after frequent washing and harsh weather) and this is such a lovely, nourishing hand cream that isn’t too heavy. Has a nice texture and natural light scent from the ingredients – love that it has no added fragrances 🙂

  3. I could not rate this cream more highly. I’m still suffering with the after effects of chemotherapy several years later. I’ve tried every cream on the market! This hand cream, when applied at bedtime, works wonders for relieving my dry cracked fingers. I’m able to continue with my sewing and knitting again.

  4. Attend the maple road stall on the weekend and meet the sweetest guy Robin, I showed him my eczema on my hand and he let me try some of the intensive care propolis hand salve cream. He also gave me a free sample pot. Fantastic customer service. I liked the cream and it wasn’t oily which is what I hate about most other creams. It left a light wax layer on my hand and instantly made a difference. I shall give this a go for a week and order a big pot if I get on with it. Thank you very much.

    • our pleasure, fingers crossed the cream helps your skin
