003 (Handy Barrier Balm Cream)
The Velvet Glove of Hand Balms
How to use
Use your fingernail size as a measure for how much 003 you need to cover your hands. This guide works for every body, all shapes and sizes. Massage firmly into your palms, fingers, cuticles, back of hands, and wrists, then take a moment to enjoy the feeling in your hands and the aroma in the air. Notice, after a moment, the powder~soft skin feel you are experiencing.
What to expect
~ For hands that suffer from chronic dryness, expect improved mobility with immediate relief of symptoms such as tightness, pulling, and soreness. Expect ongoing relief of these symptoms with regular use of 003, as our formula uses the power of plants to effectively restore and fortify your skin barrier.
~ Expect hands that are in good shape already to feel nourished, cared for, and fortified against daily environmental stressors.
In traditional use, Kokum butter helps to prevent drying of the skin and helps to restore suppleness and elasticity to the thicker skinned areas of the body, the hands and the feet.
Jojoba oil is sourced from the seed of the Jojoba plant which uses the wax ester as a non~occlusive emollient to protect its own skin. This similarity in nature to our human sebum is what makes this amazing lipid so beneficial to skin care ~ our skin recognizes this botanical as similar, and allows it to help regulate our own sebum production, support a balanced acid mantle and support skin moisture levels.
Broccoli Seed Oil
Cold pressed from the seeds of the Broccoli plant, Broccoli seed oil performs a similar function to synthetic silicone, smoothing the skin and providing a cover which helps to prevent transepidermal water loss. Using plant oils in place of synthetic silicone based polymers and mineral oils not only benefits our skin, but the compositional similarity to our skin lipids makes metabolism of these oils easier on our bodies.
