Toxin-Free Hand-Care Products to keep your hands nourished
It might not come as a surprise that ‘Hand Soap & Sanitizer’ is one of the fastest growing e-commerce categories at the moment, having increased +262% in the US in the last year (as at March 2019). Excuse the rather technical intro(!) (Source:stackline.com)
Is anyone else washing their hands obsessively?! At times like these, this daily habit we tend to do without thinking has become a constant consideration, a topic of conversation and has led to some new safe care needs… Excessive hand washing is causing severe irritation and dryness for so many.

Weleda – Skinfood
Weleda, not a new brand- their history dates back to the 20’s where they started as a pharmaceutical lab, a firm grounding for the natural cosmetics products they produce today.

Skin Food Moisturizer is the answer for your dry skin from head to toe. This green tube will work it’s magic and will transform your dry hands into silky smooth baby-like hands.
Grown Alchemist Hand Cream (Vanilla, Orange Peel)
You may have heard of ‘food Alchemy’ but what about ‘skin Alchemy’? Grown Alchemist is where science meets beauty. The founders of the brand have developed a trademarked beauty formula called “Bio-Compatible Beauty” based on the 3 skincare principles: Cleanse, Detox and Activate. As great as it sounds, all their products are natural and toxin-free.
If you are looking for a non-greasy hand cream, we may have found the perfect suggestion. Rich with antioxidant ingredients such as grape seed and Rosehip oil, this hand cream is nourishing and highly moisturizing. The best part? It’s non-greasy so you can continue your days as usual after applying. On a side note, we also love the minimalist touch of its packaging.
