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.​

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 partnership, the L'OCCITANE Foundation is involved in women's entrepreneurship supporting literacy, training and microcredit programs, as well as the development of companies created by women.


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).


L'OCCITANE is known for shea butter and has been producing shea butter beauty products for over 20 years. We source this ingredient from Burkina Faso, Africa and use it in our body care, hair care and skin care lines. The shea nut is harvested and ground into a rich vegetable butter that offers multiple benefits for the skin: protecting, nourishing, moisturising, soothing, comforting, healing and regenerating. Shea Butter


At L'OCCITANE, we have a Provence-only rule. But when it comes to special ingredients like Shea Butter, we know how to make an exception. The women of Burkina Faso have been using Shea Butter for centuries to nourish and protect hair and skin. That’s why we’ve teamed up with them to create a sustainable, fair trade supply chain that delivers supreme quality Shea Butter to your beauty routine

    I’m an avid user of handcream and this is the best I’ve ever used. You can see the difference to the texture of your hands. It feels a little creamy on the skin when first applied but a couple of minutes later it’s completely absorbed with no greasy feel at all Terrific. Highly recommended.

  • Farm hands.

    I work with livestock, birds, chickens and small animals every day, so I'm constantly washing my hands. I've tried so many hand creams but Shea Intensive Hand Balm is the only hand cream that keeps my hands soft and smooth - even in the cold months when my hands would normally be dry and cracked.

    This is my absolute favourite hand cream. I buy it for myself & give it as a present to my best friends. It is so luxurious.

  • Best hand cream

    I bought this balm cream for my husband. He is an electrician and his hands are cracks and very dry. After few days of using this cream the miracle happens. This is a healing balm cream. Try it if you have a problem hands. You can't go wrong.
