As an active gardener, my hands are always toiling away, needing care and attention. Having used Neal's Yard face creams for many years, and concious of how easily my hands show signs of ageing, I am grateful for the same quality that now appears to restore the skin texture. Also using it on my nails seems to have prevented them splitting again.

Wonderful smelling hand cream

Brilliant for eczema prone skin

I developed eczema on my hands a few months ago after moving to a hard water area. I tried several creams, balms and emollients, but none helped. Then I found an old bottle of this which I’d never opened. I put some on at night and in the morning, there was a significant reduction in my eczema. I’ve been using it now for two months and my eczema is almost gone. I think it might be the witch hazel in this cream that helps, as apparently that has anti-inflammatory properties.

Love the scent of this hand cream. Very soothing and non-greasy.

always love neal’s yard products - ethical, wonderful in every way.

I bought a hamper of products as a Xmas present - most friends and family love Neal’s Yard products as much as I do.
