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.

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

  • Super for eczema

    Worked wonders on my husbands hand and elbow eczema, and I used as a winter alternative to the regular Shea hand cream - one application at night has kept dryness at bay

  • Game-changer product for dry, cracked hands

    I have suffered with environmental dermatitis for over a decade. I've used every product - medicated and high street - under the sun. After having no joy with GP prescribed steroidal products, I went in search of something that would ease the annual winter flare ups. After a few years of using the L'Occitane hand scrubs and 20% shea hand creams, I found the 25% Shea Intensive Hand Balm ... GAME CHANGER! My hands have never been so soft or resilient to the changing weather. I've made it from December to March with no soreness, dryness much reduced, and no cracking/splitting of the skin. I posted a before and after picture of my hands and my friends couldn't believe the improvement. From what they posted in reply, you now have quite a few new customers!
