Shea Intensive Hand Balm

DESCRIPTION

Formulated with a very high concentration of 25% shea butter to provide intense nourishing care, it forms a protective film for skin that is very dry or uncomfortable due to environmental aggressions (cold, air conditioning). With its ultra-rich texture, this balm melts into the hands and nails from the moment it is applied and massaged in.

Enriched with allantoin, it helps to immediately soothe the skin, bringing comfort and softness. Used daily, it helps to protect hands from dryness. There are two ways to use the Shea Intensive Hand Balm.

For daily use: warm a generous amount of balm between the hands, then gently massage into the palms, back of the hands, nails and cuticles (twice a day).

As an intensive mask: apply a thick layer to the hands and leave on for 10 minutes to intensely nourish the skin, then massage in any excess (twice a week). Shea butter is a natural beauty balm, used by women in Sub-Saharan Africa.

Since the 1980’s, L’OCCITANE has set up a sustainable and fair trade partnership with the women in Burkina Faso who produce it. To perpetuate this story with the women of this country, the L'OCCITANE Foundation gets involved for women's entrepreneurship supporting literacy, training and microcredit programs, as well as the development of companies created by women.

SHEA BUTTER

We’d only make an exception to our Provence-only rule for a very special ingredient - the inimitable Shea Butter. Used for centuries by Sub-Saharan African women to nourish and protect skin and hair, Shea Butter is an ideal beauty ingredient. We work with several thousand women in Burkina Faso to develop a sustainable, fair trade Shea Butter supply chain. So you can feel good about feeling good. Shea Butter

  • WOW - SINKS IN IMMEDIATELY - ALMOST POWDERY

    I would have to say this product is a "wow." I have used multiple hand products by L'Occitane, and love them all. But this one is a bit unique, I think, and really does the job. I love the original shea butter, 20% and still use it. I love using the 100% shea butter on my hands and feet at night, and love that. But this one is definitely "less greasy," than the others. Its almost powdery, and sinks into the skin almost immediately. To me, they are ALL fabulous, but if you haven't tried this one, you really should. So many of my friends buy cheap hand lotions at popular stores, but they just dont know what they are missing.....LOVE L'Occitane!

  • Love this product!

    Perfect thick creamy texture and NOT GREASY, which is a must for me. It has a light and pleasant scent. I like it better then the 20% shea hand balm.

  • Works for the “Driest-Crocodile” Skin

    Born & raised in tropical country and never been to countries with winter season until I moved in the USA. My first two winter seasons were horrible on my skin. I work in child care where I mostly used my hands for cleaning, diapering, washing little hands & faces every now and then. All these made my hands look like I was a crocodile. I have tried a bunch of products - some work but do not last long. Most do not work and even made my skin worse. Thanks to the parent of the child I work with - she introduced me to Shea Butter and L'Occitane last 2015. Although I had few chances that time to purchase I was able to be relieved from the harsh winter. The following year, I got sidetracked by a different product because it was free. I forgot about L'Occitane. Then last year I went to my old toiletries and found a small bottle of L'Occitane shea butter and it all brought back good memories. Love is merrier the second time around! This hand balm is so perfect and melts into my dry skin.
