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).


Shea butter is the perfect ingredient to bring nutrition and protection. With their exceptional concentrations in shea butter, our iconic hand and foot creams help to nourish and protect all skin types, even the driest ones. Skin feels comfortable all day long and is delicately perfumed with an enveloping scent of shea butter. Hand & Foot Care


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

  • The Best!

    This hand cream is above and beyond the best I have ever used. It's creamy but light and leaves my hands so soft and supple that my skin seems 20 years younger. It's also wonderful to see the improvement of my fingernails and cuticles. I won't use anything else now.

  • Overnight Restoration...

    So I am a man... Who works in Dairy Farming... In the middle of winter my fingers will crack open, with the mud, muck and other various things one comes into contact with on a daily basis. Not to mention the extreme cold and wet at 3 am in the morning. This cream has been a boon for my hands and fingers... put it on last thing at night... new hands the next morning. A little goes a long way. So if you are a manly man who is not afraid of having his masculinity called into question, or a Princess who would like the Frog in your life to have softer hands... buy this. It works.

  • Holy grail hand cream

    I would say this would be my best hand cream i ever used on daily basis day and night. My hands feels soft after applied. Just need a tiny pea sized cream for both hands.

  • Wow

    I love this hand cream! I use it every night before bed and wake up with soft and supple hands. I also use it on my feet which always works wonders. Undoubtedly a desert island product.
