Mom Hands was formulated with one purpose in mind: to help soothe sore or itchy skin, and keep your hands, and wherever else you need it, soft and strong. Our own moms experience red, dry hands that crack and flake; and dry, sore heels that hurt and harden. The few, simple ingredients in this whipped butter were picked to help alleviate the pain from these and other symptoms, and to help return hands to the way they're meant to be. Outside of taming and educating children, we know that being a mom is a crazy experience that is full of hand washing, clothes washing, other people/children washing, etc. and that all of that can be hard on your hands. With our Mom Hands on your own hands (or where ever you need it) you will continue to be the unstoppable force that is a Mom.
All you have to do is rub it in. The more you use, the longer it will take to soak and rub in. Mom Hands comes in a 2 oz glass jar, that makes it easy to scoop out to the last drop. We recommend using an applicator or ensuring you wash your hands before dipping them in to preserve the life of your butter.
Mom Hands is made up of six simple ingredients: Shea Butter, Argan Oil, Jojoba Oil, Vitamin E, and Essential Oils of Lavender and Helichrysum. Each of these ingredients were hand picked for soothing sensitive and sore skin, even for people who are very sensitive themselves.
Shea Butter is a fat that is extracted from the African Shea tree (Vitellaria paradoxa) that is composed of two main parts, one is primarily saturated fatty acids that make it healthy and moisturizing for your skin while the other is composed mostly of triterpene alcohols and Vitamin E that are responsible for Shea butter’s medicinal properties. Shea butter has been used in Africa for many centuries, and for a myriad of purposes; from cooking oil to stretch mark reduction. Argan Oil is also an excellent source of fatty acids and Vitamin E, it has been found to stimulate cells oxygenation which restores the hydrophilic layer and skin cells and helps the skin feel more elastic and smooth. Jojoba is not in fact an oil, but is a liquid plant wax known for its absorption properties that are similar to our skins own sebum which provide its moisturizing properties. Then we add some additional Vitamin E to really ensure your skin in getting all the vitamins and nutrients to heal and feel great. The essential oils in this butter are purposefully few and very powerful, while being suitable for sensitive or very sore skin. Lavender is a powerful antiseptic, its name comes from the Latin root “lavare” which means “to wash,” and has been used for ages to soothe and heal irritations and rashes. The terpene in Lavender that gives it that signature relaxing effect is linalool, which has also been shown to have antifungal effects. Helichrysum has been used medicinally in its native Mediterranean area for thousands of years, and has in recent years been shown in various studies to have abilities to lower inflammation, help make your wounds and cuts heal quickly, helps scar marks disappear fast, as well as having anti-allergenic and antimicrobial properties. Each of these fantastic ingredients come together to form a wonderful butter, that soothes your skin and smells simply divine.
