Formulation Focus: Hand Cream with Oat Lipid

The global outbreak of Coronavirus disease (COVID-19) is having an unprecedented impact on the lives and routines of people around the world. To tackle the spread of the virus, global health organisations have now released information on crucial hand hygiene practices, with everyone strongly encouraged to wash their hands both more frequently and more thoroughly. For many people however, following this advice can render the skin intensely irritated and dry, meaning moisturising hand after-care is no longer a luxury but a necessity for alleviating the bothersome – often painful – signs of irritation. Below, we take a look at our skin-saving Hand Cream formulation – the perfect solution to this widespread problem.

This deeply nourishing Hand Cream alleviates the adverse effects of over-washing: restoring extremely dry, cracked, or unbearably tight skin to its former soft, supple glory. It also provides instant cooling comfort to relieve the hands of the persistent burning sensation often experienced with irritation. Moreover, Oat Lipid, our premium oat oil with a unique, skin-similar lipid profile, works in this lusciously rich formulation to promote the skin’s natural repair process and protect the hands from further dehydration. What’s best? All this without the tell-tale greasy feel that can render hands unusable thanks to the rapidly-absorbing, skin-quenching formula that leaves nothing but goodness behind in the feeling of long-lasting moisturisation.
