Four oils - olive, almond, jojoba, and wheat germ make about a third of this rich hand cream. Wheat germ, with its heavy, thick texture, acts as a mild preservative. It is rich in vitamin E and that is why it was added to this cream for hands which are prone to excessive dryness and cracked skin. The rich combination is complemented by honey and beeswax and three essential oils; carrot seed essential oil was carefully selected due to its strong regenerative properties, lavender oil for its healing properties, and lemon for its refreshing and antibacterial action. The cream was hydrated with melissa flower water to complement the gentle citrus scent that will linger on your skin like toilet water.
