This concentrated, extra intensive moisture cream - already a customer favorite, penetrates deep into the dermal layers for lasting moisture replenishment and superior skin protection. Created with hands in mind, however you can use this intensive cream anywhere you need a little extra hydration boost. Quenches thirsty skin with an infusion of pure, natural moisture while also providing irritation, chapping and redness relief. Provides a healthy dose of protective vitamins, natural fatty acids and antioxidants too! Excellent for use on dry, chapped hands, dry elbows or heels, or to give your tired feet a little extra TLC. This velvety whipped but dense and rich cream will be a favorite addition to your intensive moisturizing needs - all without the greasy or oily after feel. Penetrates deeply, without leaving a sticky or unpleasant residue like some other intensive hand creams do.
What's inside? Super emollient & hydrating but breathable organic sweet almond oil and organic apricot kernel oil provide the base for this dense cream. In addition, organic coconut oil, panthenol (pro vitamin B5), and a super-light blend of fresh aromatic herbal and citrus essential oils are designed to calm and hydrate dry, red or irritated skin. Oh, and it also includes MSM - an incredible ingredient for helping keep age spots and skin discoloration in check - used daily on your hands it can really help improve the sun damage that naturally occurs due to frequent sun exposure. MSM also adds an extra moisture boost, so it helps hydrate, add better skin flexibility and plump the skin while also helping even the tone and combatting discoloration.
With all the handwashing we've been conditioned to practice in this new world of prevention, most people have tripled (or more) the amount of hand-washing they do. Not to mention all of the hand sanitizer and sanitizing wipe use - made with 90% or more alcohol, which contribute greatly to dryness and irritation as well.
All of this improved hygienic awareness is a great preventive tool against catching viruses and removing bacteria that can become problematic, however it really does a number on your hands since frequent hand washing and sanitizing dries the skin out. You can feel great about using this totally nontoxic intensive moisture cream though. You won't find ANY artificial fragrances, no parabens or other hormone-altering preservatives, no artificial colors and no petroleum-derived ingredients.
Just like lip balm (one of our bestsellers), which is applied multiple times a day, any hand cream should also be as "clean" as possible since you are repeatedly applying it to your skin. This intensive and deeply hydrating cream not only works really well at infusing and maintaining soothing moisture, it's also something you can feel great about using due to the clean ingredients. This is so important for the products we apply multiple times a day, almost without exception.
We decided to offer this cream in a 4 oz. container with a FREE GIFT of a .35 oz. refillable travel size "mini pot" container (a $3.50 value, can also be purchased separately - makes a great addition to any gift bag or is a fun little gift all on its own). An easy, compact travel size that can be easily transported in a purse or travel bag. With how much everyone has to wash their hands while out and about, this can be a real lifesaver to travel with. Let's face it, the soaps available in public places usually aren't exactly skin-friendly moisturizing options, so having an instant infusion of intense soothing & repairing moisture can really help prevent excessive drying.
How big is the .35 oz. travel size container? Well since we are an Ohio based company we'll use the best analogy in honor of our home state - it's about the size of a generously sized, full grown buckeye. Perfect for when you need to take it with you somewhere - whether it be in a gym bag, to put in a drawer at work or to easily transport anywhere else you need to have intensive moisture on hand. A little goes a long way, and you might be surprised how long this mini pot lasts!

Our Intensive Moisture Cream also includes a cocktail of antioxidants that are excellent for skin repair. Vitamin C ester, white tea extract and ginkgo biloba extract add an element of topical free radical protection, while also aiding in keeping delicate skin even toned and bright, and helping to combat age spots. What you get is superior, intensive hydration, anti aging benefits, AND antioxidant protection - without all the toxic artificial scents and chemicals.
Zero artificial fragrances (which also tend to dry skin out, even thought they are added to most products designed to add moisture to the skin), zero artificial colors. Just natural, penetrating moisture for your most dehydrated extremities. Also works great if you practice any deep tissue, cellulite or fascia massage as an alternative to oil, due to its superior "slip". In a pinch, you can also use this on your face for spot moisture, although we don't recommend it as a daily facial moisturizer since it is formulated more for dry non-facial skin (instead, check out our Nourish & Hydrate Face Cream for facial moisture needs).
