Maria Åkerberg Hand Cream 100 ml
"Did you know that marigold (Calendula in latin) is much more than that classic decorative plant reminiscent of your auntie's countryside garden? The petals are full of amazing, active substances that will gently calm, cleanse and nourish the skin. Particularly the more fragile kind. Apply our organic Hand Cream on the whole body to reconstruct the natural protective barrier and give your skin its silky, soft texture back."
Hand Cream is an emollient cream that counteracts dry skin on both hands and the rest of the body.
Your hands are washed several times during a whole day, often with harsh soaps. After being exposed to dehydrating soap, solvents, paper and so on, the skin's lipid barrier needs to be restored.
Hand Cream restores the natural protective barrier and makes your hands soft again.
Hand Cream contains extract of Calendula, which is an ancient medicinal plant, traditionally used on delicate skin. Calendula extract also gives the cream its varying and unique colour. Rapeseed Oil, Jojoba Oil, Shea Butter and Beeswax, have an extremely nourishing, protecting and emollient effect.
Individuals who are allergic to pollen may be sensitive to the Beeswax used in Hand Cream.

"Shea Balm, Hand Cream and Face Dream are a few of our products that are very well liked and mentioned because of how efficient they are on exposed skin.
One of the reasons why they are so effective and efficient is because of the one ingredient that we load them with – Calendula Officinalis. This plant lives for one year and originates from the Mediterranean region. The latin name speaks of its frequent use as a medicinal herb and has been used as a caring product for delicate skin for centuries. The word calendula comes from the latin word kalendae – the first day of every month, with the interpretation of every month, just because the flower blooms all year around in the Mediterranean region. Officinalis means that it is a medicinal herb. The word officina means workshop, but also pharmacy, a place where medicinal preparation from healing plants is done.
Calendula acts antiseptic, anti-inflammatory and calming on the skin. The flower contains carotin which gives it its colour and enhances the formation of new skin when it is used in skincare.
The calendula extract that we use sometimes vary in colour and texture, depending on the colour of the flower and the scent. It effects the colour of the final product, but not the product itself or its effect. That's how it is when choosing natural products."
Use Hand Cream every time you have washed your hands. For maximum effect, apply Hand Cream in the evening, put on cotton gloves and leave overnight.
