Do you love tending to your plants but suffer with sore or calloused hands? Regain beautiful, soft hands after all your hard work with our gardeners' skin care guide to exfoliation and hand creams.

Gardener's hand scrub

This hand scrub is easy to make yourself and leaves hands super soft - just what you need after a day in the garden. Use one tablespoon sugar, 1 teaspoon of Manuka & Lemon Tea Tree Antibacterial Hand Wash and 1 tablespoon Olive oil.

Massage your hands thoroughly working in circular motions, gently rub a little on your cuticles to help soften them and rinse well with warm water. Pat dry with a clean towel and massage your hands with Help at Hand hand cream to nourish and protect new skin.

Haven’t got time to make your own hand scrub? Try a sugar scrub, a teaspoon is enough. Apply to hands, massage thoroughly and rinse with warm water.

Soothing chapped or rough hands

There are times when your skin’s barrier function is compromised by external factors such as over-washing or exposure to bitter winds and parching sun. Your skin loses its moisture, feels uncomfortable, rough and chapped and becomes susceptible to infections.

" External factors such as over-washing, exposure to bitter winds or parching sun can compromise your skin’s barrier function. "

shea butter

Bolster your skin’s natural barrier and prevent dryness by using a rich and protective moisturising cream.

Our lavender-scented Help at Hand and light citrus Manuka & Lemon Tea Tree Hand Cream are rich in moisture retaining oils and, thanks to their high content of Shea butter, offer a generous helping of important nutrients, vitamin A, E and F, and other valuable phyto (plant) actives.

Our natural hand creams are very gentle and leave your skin feeling soft, supple and protected.

The high content of essential fatty acids is easily absorbed by the skin and helps strengthen and rebuild the membranes that hold moisture in the cells. The bases for our products are not water but pure Aloe Vera. Aloe Vera has amazing powers for absorbing and retaining moisture – much like giving your skin a refreshing drink. It is also known for its soothing and anti-inflammatory properties.
