Sea Buckthorn Hand Cream was one of the first Weleda products I ever tried, long before I even started working here. It’s still one of my favorites. I have a tube sitting right by my desk, and every time I put it on (like 10 times a day), it makes me smile. My colleagues are probably always wondering what’s so funny.
The Sea Buckthorn Hand Cream has a light, uplifting citrus-y scent, courtesy of sun-drenched essential oils of orange, mandarin and grapefruit. It smells like a big bowl of tropical fruit salad. Even better than the way it smells, though, is the good it’s doing for my (and your!) hands. Biodynamic® sea buckthorn oil is chock-full of essential fatty acids and antioxidant vitamins A and E that help smooth and nourish skin, and protect it from free radicals. It’s also made with biodynamic sesame seed oil, which helps soften hands.
This hand cream is great for the summer, when your hands are in need of some light refreshment and your mood a boost. (It’s been proven that citrus scents have a positive effect on our well-being, helping to reduce anxiety and depression.) Throw it in your beach bag and picnic basket, and get ready for smooth healthy hands all season long.
