Hands & Feet – Nourishing Butter Balm

By

Hands & Feet nourishing butter with peppermint is a rich balm with the texture of buttercream frosting. It goes on richly but has a great absorption rate since it’s loaded with Ceramides, special fat molecules that are naturally present in your skin cells. If you have dry hands, feet, elbows, knees, etc., you will love this decadent treat. It’s quite concentrated, so a little will go a long way to restore dry skin and refresh tired, hard-working hands and feet.

Description

55ml

A 100% natural nourishing butter, ideal for replenishing, smoothing and softening very dry hands, feet, elbows and knees. The delicious peppermint scent is just divine and it makes a great balm to rub on temples, massage your scalp, back of the neck and anywhere else where you’re feeling tight or achy. Just remember to watch out for contact with your eyes after application, as this is quite minty.

 

Key Ingredients

 

Ceramides
Ceramides are a special type of lipids (fat molecules) that are naturally present in your skin cells. In healthy, youthful skin, Ceramides make up 30% – 40% of the outer skin layer (epidermis). Ceramides are important for retaining your skin’s moisture and barrier function. When your skin’s barrier function is disrupted, your skin will feel dry, inflamed, and be at risk for inflammatory skin conditions like eczema, psoriasis and more. The good news is that you can boost your skin’s outer layer by supplementing your skincare with oils naturally high in Ceramides

Organic Shea Butter 
Shea Butter is renowned for its skin moisturising and protective properties. It has been widely used for centuries to help heal burns, sores, dermatitis, psoriasis, dandruff, and much more. Shea Butter is very high in Palmitic and Oleic Acids, which are essential fatty acids that help soften, smooth and replenish dry skin. It also contains antioxidants (Vitamins A, E and F), which may help protect your skin from environmental and free-radical damage. This luxurious butter is known for leaving a silky-soft, making it perfect for dry patches, eczema, etc.

The Sustainable story of the Shea Butter is another of its best assets, and Awake Organics are proud to support this initiative. Their organic fairtrade Shea Butter has been hand-crafted by local women of the Sub-Saharan Savannah-Sahel for decades, providing women with a secured income for their family. After harvest, the local women will negotiate their price before selling their product on to Europe for refining. This fairtrade Shea Butter trade makes a significant and positive impact within their families and on their wider community, supporting new and better infrastructures for a higher quality of life.

Organic Peppermint Oil
Peppermint oil is the essential oil distilled from the flowers and leaves of the peppermint plant. Records dating from ancient Greece, Rome and Egypt mention that it was used for digestive disorders and other conditions. Today, peppermint oil is widely used in aromatherapy to help reduce symptoms of anxiety, sinus infections, coughs and colds, and many other conditions via inhalation. It’s also used topically (applied to the skin) to help soothe headaches, muscle aches, reduce joint pain, and help relieve itching.
