KNOW MORE: Colloidal oats, Phyto 5 and shea butter power this velvety formula, protecting skin from weather damage without feeling greasy.  Smoothing, softening and keeping hands pleasant to the touch, this vegan, non-toxic hand cream is a handbag essential.

Colloidal oatmeal: A simple, miracle ingredient that helps protect and soothe dry, itchy skin, colloidal oatmeal has been used to heal and soften skin for centuries. Studies show that thanks to avenanthramides, a group of plant chemicals found in oat kernels, inflammation causing proteins in the body called 'cytokines', are reduced helping to inhibit an inflammatory response. A high anti-oxidant profile also helps combat oxidative stress.

This unsung hero of the grain world is bursting with vital nutrients such as manganese, phosphorus, copper, biotin, vitamin B1, magnesium, dietary fiber, chromium, and zinc. What's not to love?

Shea butter (Botyrospermum parkii): This healing, miracle butter/oil, has been used since time immemorial to keep skin in optimal health. A profile rich in five principal fatty acids (palmitic, stearic, oleic, linoleic, and arachidic acids) anti-oxidant, phenolic compounds and vitamins A , D, E and F, allantoin, make this a genuine superfood for the skin.

An excellent moisturizer for dry, itchy skin, it can be used to alleviate dryness, cracked skin on hands, heels, around cuticles and in rough patches on your skin, caused by acne, rashes, bites, burns, scars, stings and/or stretch marks. It is a powerful support of aging gracefully, promoting the production of collagen in the skin, thus restoring elasticity and helping prevent premature facial lines and wrinkles, by promoting cell renewal.

Allantoin: Allantoin is widely considered to be a versatile, safe, and effective skin care ingredient with many different benefits including smoothing, softening, and healing the skin and promoting the shedding of outer layers of the epidermis, cellular replication and healthy tissue growth. Most famously derived from comfrey's root mucilage, this emollient can also be safely, chemically synthesized, into a fine white powder.

Marshmallow root (Althaea officinalis): Ensuring your softest skin ever, marshmallow root protects and conditions, while helping maintain levels of hyaluronic acid in the skin. Marshmallow root has a long history in food and folk medicine that dates back to ancient Greek and Egyptian times, even mentioned in Homer's Illiad, written 2800 years ago.

This anti-irritant, “slippery” herb's roots and stem, secretes mucilage, which helps provide relief from itching, redness and chafing, coating and softening skin, while lowering swelling due to it's emollient properties. Tolerable for even allergenic and hypersensitive skin, this cooling, plant-derived, glycerin-like hydrator, has low-concentrations of ceramide precursors, which can help moisturize and give a plumped look to the delicate skin of the hands.
