Our Lavender Moisturising Skin Cream can be used as an ordinary hand, face or body moisturiser but the long list of its uses also includes soothing sunburn, relieving dry or itchy skin and for dabbing onto insect bites making it an essential tool to take on holiday. Our cooling lavender cream would also make a useful accessory in the kitchen as it can come in handy to use on burns. Our Lavender Skin Cream contains a base of polysorbate 20 which has a soothing effect on your skin; cetearyl alcohol which is well known to effectively condition and soften the skin; glyceryl stearate (derived from palm kernel, vegetable or soy oil and is also found naturally in the human body) which penetrates the skin and slows the loss of water from the skin by forming a barrier on the skin’s surface; phenoxyethanol which is used in many natural creams as a preservative as an alternative to parabens; water to moisturise your skin and a drop of enriching vitamin-e oil. The cream base is then carefully blended together with natural, fresh and pure lavender essential oil, which as well as possessing a lovely floral aroma, it is the most used oil in aromatherapy. Lavender oil is often used to relieve hay fever, headaches and tension to name just a few.
