Patchouli & Orange Hand Cream
A wonderful hand cream for everyday use, this blend uses many ingredients known for their skin-softening qualities, as well as essential oils of patchouli and sweet orange. While this cream is a good general skin tonic, it is also great for older more mature skin, dealing with dermatitis, as well as soothing dry irritated skin.
- Cocoa butter – because of its natural make-up, and its nutrient and fatty acid content, cocoa butter is amazing
for dry skin and can actually penetrate further than the top layer of the skin, meaning it moisturises deep-down
and really nourishes the skin
- Shea butter – traditionally used to reduce the appearance of fine lines, scars and stretch marks, shea butter is also
great for easing a variety of skin irritations, such as psoriasis and eczema. The healing qualities of shea butter are
due to the presence of several fatty acids and plant sterols, namely oleic, stearic, palmitic and linolenic acids
which lend their anti-inflammatory and anti-oxidant qualities to the butter.
- Patchouli – this oil is said to be a tissue regenerator, helping with the regrowth of skin cells, healing rough, cracked
skin. Can be helpful in cases of eczema and dermatitis
- Orange – this oil helps to remove toxins from congested skins, while at the same time working to heal dry skin and dermatitis – all in all, a rather good skin tonic
Massage a pea-sized amount into hands after washing. Use regularly for best results.
