Our Essential Dry Skin Moisturisers
Hand Creams & Lotions
We offer a range of hand creams and lotions. The main difference between the two is their consistency and how nourishing they are. Hand lotions have a lighter texture and are formulated with 5% organic Shea butter. They're ideal for those with a 'normal' skin type, providing the skin with light hydration and counterbalances the drying effects of water. L'Occitane hand creams have a richer texture and higher concentration of organic Shea butter (ranging from 20-25%) and are ideal for those with dry to very dry hands that are in need of lasting nourishment.
