Hand creams and moisturisers have been used by humanity for longer than you may think, it's theorised that use of such products dates back 10,000 years to the Mesolithic Era! Women in Latin America have used avocado to moisturise since pre-columbian times, similarly, Brazilians and Africans have long used palm oil.

The primary emergence of modern creams originated during the 1800's, where popular new ingredients included petroleum jelly and mineral oils, which were used all over the body. One of the first scented creams brought out was Hind's Honey and Almond Cream, formulated in 1872 by a drugstore owner in Portland, Maine. 

What makes our brand of hand cream different from many commercial creams is that we use a blend of Shea Butter and Olive Oil to make ours. One of the primary benefits of using this formulation include a higher level of moisturisation due to it's thicker consistency allowing it to more readily be absorbed by the skin. Other benefits include powerful anti-oxidant nutrients such as Vitamin E which alleviates premature wrinkling and to top it all off contains plant esters which trigger cytokines and other inflammatory cells which slows their production
