Better Hands cream of last months

Updated: Mar 25



After shopping, after have used public transports, before to get into public buildings, after touching money or plastic objects, when we get back home.. in the last year we have always had to be careful to wash our hands with soap and water or, in the absence of it use hydroalcoholic alchool to remove germs, bacteria and avoid the profusion of covid-19 virus. Clearly in this way we not only eliminate bacteria but also the hydrolipidic mantle that produces our skin and is, in a certain way, a natural protection and moisturizing barrier.

We have made a selection of the best brands that can help restore this barrier and bring hydration to our hands, especially because in the upper part of them there is less presence of sebaceous glands, therefore even more need than other parts of the body to provide nourishment and repair.





L'Occitane


A particularly moisturizing cream with an exclusive and all-natural formulation, it has a light texture based on natural oils such as coconut and almonds, 20% shea butter and extract of honey and linseed.

The constant use of this cream helps to have a silky skin and deeply nourished.
