I'm so happy to introduce the latest additions to our range - our Purify Hand Sanitiser and our two Hand & Body Balms. This year has taken a very a different direction than planned for most of us, since the onset of Covid-19 and lockdown commencing. Instead of focusing on trade shows and our wholesale side of the business we put our efforts into developing an effective hand care range which is both kind to ourselves and the environment.
So let's take a look at both our new products in a bit more detail..
With the onset of the pandemic it was clear there was a shortage of essential hand sanitisers, and I noticed especially there were very few that were natural and ethical. So we wanted to create something that was both effective, and in keeping with the governments health guidelines, and that was also kind to your skin and the environment, and enjoyable to use.
What it contains:
70% Cosmetic Grade Alcohol - According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, hand sanitiser must contain at least 60% alcohol to effectively kill bacteria and viruses so we have used 70% in our hand sanitiser spray. We use trade specific denatured alcohol which is derived from Beetroot and made especially for skincare use.
Organic Vegetable Glycerine - Glycerine is moisturising and nourishing for skin to prevent hands drying out. Our vegetable glycerin is derived from organic Soya Beans and is 100% free from Palm oil.
Organic essential oils - Our hand sanitiser spray contains a carefully selected blend of Lemongrass, Juniper Berry, Lemon, Tea Tree & Cedarwood essential oils. Not only do these cleansing oils provide a beautiful, fresh scent, but they are also packed full of beneficial antibacterial, antimicrobial and anti-fungal properties.
Our hand sanistier is 100% free from Palm oil sls, parabens, mineral oil, synthetic fragrance & colour. It is certified cruelty free with The Leaping Bunny and registered with The Vegan Society.
At the beginning of lockdown I found myself suffering from dry hands due to constant hand washing, and after speaking with family and friends I found that this is a very common complaint. Our balms not only nourish and moisturise dry hands, they are a versatile product suitable for use on the whole body. Each ingredient has been hand picked specifically to nourish dry and sensitive skin and the small pot makes it a handy size to take with you on the go.
What they contain:
Botanical Oils - Our balms contain a blend of organic Hemp, Jojoba & Sunflower oils, which are moisturising and healing for skin, and packed full of vitamins and minerals which absorb deeply into the skin leaving it deeply nourished.
Calendula - Calendula Flower is an extremely healing ingredient with active compounds which provide antioxidant protection, soothe skin and reduce discomfort.
Cocoa Butter - highly moisturising and rich in essential fatty acids which form a protective barrier over skin to keep moisture locked in.
Candelilla Wax - An emollient, and a skin-protective barrier agent that helps prevent the skin from losing moisture. It is also known to hydrate parched and scaly skin, giving enhanced smoothness.
Our Hand & Body Balms are available in two unique essential oil blends -
Calm - A soothing blend of Lavender, Frankincense, Patchouli and Chamomile essential oils which provide naturally calming and anti-inflammatory benefits for skin, as well as relaxing the nervous system and providing a beautiful, calming scent.
Restore - A cleansing blend of Rosemary, Lemon, Tea Tree & Bergamot essential oils which provide naturally antibacterial, antimicrobial and anti-fungal properties as well as a fresh, uplifting scent.
We hope you enjoy our new products. We are also working on a range of liquid soaps to complete our hand care range, so please keep an eye out for updates on those over the coming weeks!
