May Chang Hand Salve
For hands in need of a pick me up – a fresh-fragranced balm to soften and nourish dry hands. 30ml tin.
This is a hand cream with a difference. Super soft, fresh and delicately fragranced with the uplifting citrus scent of May Chang, orange, lemon and spearmint, our hydrating dry hand treatment will have you reaching for it again and again.
Packed full of natural beeswax, with its honey and propolis, blended with pure plant oils, this natural moisturiser absorbs quickly, softens skin and is the perfect salve for dry hands.
Most skin creams or lotions are a mixture of water (aqua) and oils – have a look at the ingredients on the back of pack. Because oils and water don’t mix (think of oil and vinegar) the manufacturers add emulsifiers to bind the oil and water together – these are not normally chemicals that benefit your skin. Also, because water can grow bacteria, manufacturers selling products in the UK are legally obliged to add preservatives to kill any bacteria – so most skin creams contain chemicals that will kill bacteria in the cream…and also on your skin. We prefer not to upset the skin’s natural skin flora so chose not to add water to any of our products – so we don’t need to add any synthetic emulsifiers and preservatives.
Each 30ml tin contains:
- Beeswax from our bees here in West Oxfordshire – helps to naturally seal moisture into the skin
- Organic Apricot Kernel Oil – quickly absorbed into the skin to help soothe and nourish dry skin
- Organic Jojoba Oil – close to the skin’s own natural sebum for smooth, soft skin
- Natural Vitamin E – for stronger skin
- Pure Grapeseed Oil – a very light oil which is easily absorbed and leaves skin feeling nourished and toned
- Organic Essential Oils – which make our products smell really nice
…and absolutely no artificial anything, ever and we donate 5p from every sale to the Berkshire, Buckinghamshire and Oxfordshire Wildlife Trust!
