product description

Moisturises & repairs badly damaged and cracked skin.

Apicare Very Hardworkers Handcreme is a thick beeswax balm packed with Sweet Almond & botanical oils to replace the lost oils in your skin, and active Manuka honey to hydrate. It really works! Not just for hands, use also on knees, elbows, heels and cuticles. Massage well into your cracked skin until your skin can't absorb any more cream.

This crème has a lot of natural plant oils so when you first apply your skin will feel a little oily. The oil will be absorbed into the skin, the speed of this will depend on how dry your skin is. Using the crème before you go to bed is a good idea as it gives the crème all night to be absorbed. Using cotton socks or gloves overnight is recommended for maximum moisturizing. Use Very Hardworkers Handcreme to repair VERY damaged skin. Including skin that is suffering nicks and splits.

Key Benefits

  • Sweet Almond Oil is included at generous volumes and is one of the oils closest to the oil produced by our own skin, making it an ideal ingredient in a heavy duty handcreme.

  • This handcreme is very popular with florists, builders, nurses etc whose hands are subjected to heavy wear and tear.

Hero Ingredient - Beeswax

Beeswax is an excellent emollient and provides non-occlusive skin protection. It is non-allergic, and has elastic and water repellent properties which allows it to sustain sunscreen action and provides greater permanence on skin or lip surfaces.

Beeswax locks in moisture, fosters cells and protects skin from damaging environmental factors. It is a natural nourishing moisturiser and has anti-inflammatory, antibacterial, anti-allergenic and germicidal antioxidant properties.

Hero Ingredient - Sweet Almond Oil

Sweet Almond Oil is naturally high in Vitamins A, B1, B2 and B6 and is easily absorbed by the skin. It is a great emollient (has skin softening and soothing properties) and helps to restore lost moisture to the skin. Its soothing and anti-inflammatory characteristics make it suitable for use on all skin types.

I was introduced to this product from a chemist in Mt Maunganui- it really is amazing- I have for years suffered with very dry hands ( gardener who wears gloves). On using this cream - I have found it works within 2-3 days - hands have never felt better. Also am using on soles of feet - great also for feet

By: Arthur (Auckland)

We use this cream for many years and it is good to dry and cracked skin. The only wish is that it could have a consistent quality which unfortunately may vary from year to year and it would be good not to have a smell of essential oil too.

I have used product for over a year. Really great. Use it on legs and arms before swimming creates a great barrier
