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.
In November & December 2018, for every 150ml Shea Butter Hand Cream sold in New Zealand, L’OCCITANE* will be donating $1 back to the Blind Foundation to support the practical and emotional assistance they provide for the tens of thousands of Kiwis who are blind or have low vision.
*Participating stores include free-standing L’OCCITANE boutiques in New Zealand only. All 150ml Shea Butter Hand and Foot Creams will be counted in the donations.
