Ingredient Feature: Behind the Hand Creams

Give a wave to our latest launch, the Hand Cream: a clean, lightweight formula that delivers a luxury skincare experience. After a four year journey in product development, we created a silky and moisturizing hand cream formulated with nourishing botanical ingredients. Like the rest of our products, this formula is packed with only the best, most high performing top shelf ingredients. 

This is hand care reimagined. Read on to learn more about the star ingredients in The Hand Creams. 

THE FRAGRANCE

The Hand Cream in Violet + Ambrette gets its dreamy scent from violet leaf and ambrette seed. Violet leaf is commonly used in aromatherapy for reducing anxiety. As part of the middle note, the heart of a fragrance, violet leaf is a green note that provides a calming effect for its user. Ambrette seed is a sweet, earthy, floral fragrance and it’s the top note of our scented hand cream. Its grounding aroma can help manage fatigue, depression, and other stress-related conditions. 

SUNFLOWER SEED OIL

Sunflower seed oil is rich in vitamin E and linoleic acid. Together these two components make sunflower seed oil great at protecting and moisturizing the skin. Studies have shown that vitamin E protects the skin from UV induced damage. Linoleic acid is easily absorbed into the skin and delivers instant moisture and plumpness. Sunflower seed oil works with other key ingredients such as aloe leaf extract and algae to reduce the signs of aging and hydrate the skin. 

ALOE LEAF EXTRACT

Aloe leaf extract contains numerous antioxidants and antibacterial properties. In addition to soothing the skin, aloe leaf extract also functions as a humectant helping the skin maintain moisture.  

ALGAE

Algae extract hydrates, soothes and revitalizes the skin. This powerhouse ingredient can reduce the appearance of fine lines and help lock in moisture leaving your hands smooth and firm. 

ROSEMARY EXTRACT

Rosemary extract is filled with anti-inflammatory, antioxidant and antifungal benefits. It can help to prevent signs of premature aging because it stimulates biological activity and cell growth. Rosemary extract helps the skin maintain a youthful appearance by tightening loose skin. 

CAMELLIA SINENSIS (WHITE TEA) LEAF EXTRACT

White tea leaf extract has anti-aging and protective capabilities. It has the ability to prevent the breakdown of collagen and elastin, keeping the skin firm and supple. White tea leaf extract hydrates and protects the skin.

REISHI MUSHROOM

Reishi mushroom is great for all skin types and can be found in common skincare products like serums, moisturizers and masks. This ingredient makes for a great hydrator as it contains polysaccharides that help the skin attract and retain water. This species of mushroom is The Hand Cream’s secret ingredient to deeply hydrated skin and aids in reducing the appearance of fine lines too.
