Do your hands suffer from dryness in the summer sun and get chapped in the winter winds? You’re not alone!

If you love the thought of giving them a right good pamper and want something that’s organic, vegan and terribly decadent then look no further!

Organic hand butters are a great addition to the Maldon Soap’s hand care range and they will nourish your hands with their gorgeous blend of organic, fair trade, unrefined butters and oils.

Due to their melty nature I do not make these between June and September as they don’t set!

What is Organic Hand Butter?

Organic hand butter is a gorgeous product which melts on contact with your warm skin.  Simply rub the bar between your hands to release its cocoa and shea buttery goodness onto your skin.  It comes in three gorgeous varieties. There’s a geranium version, an orange version (which works brilliantly with the chocolatey cocoa butter to make it smell like chocolate orange) or, for my customers with very sensitive skin, there’s an unfragranced version so it just smells faintly chocolatey due to the organic, unrefined cocoa butter.

Why Organic hand butter?

I made some of these solid lotion bars a few years ago but at the time I was in my soap shack and in the blazing hot summer of 2016 they all melted! So I discontinued them before they had really got popular.

I still felt that they were a valuable addition to Maldon Soaps skin care range so I’ve bought back the hand butter so that there’s now a variety of hand products available to all my customers.

What’s in Organic Hand Butter?

Organic, fair trade, unrefined cocoa butter: With its distinctive chocolatey fragrance and wonderful texture this cocoa butter sinks into the skin to deeply moisturise even the driest skin.

Organic, fairly traded, unrefined shea butter: A softer butter than cocoa butter, shea butter is rich in vitamins A and E and is great for helping with scarring.  Shea butter is incredibly moisturising and nurtures the skin.

Organic jojoba oil: A light wax rather than an oil, joioba mimics skins own sebum so it’s like putting your own moisture back on your skin.  Sinks into the dermis of the skin (the bit that most needs the moisture).

Organic jojoba wax: Helps to keep the Organic Hand Butter stable and solid but also helps to carry the butters into the skin.

Organic cornflour: When mixed in with the oils and butters the cornflour helps to mattify the skin so that organic hand butter isn’t too oily on the skin.

How to use Organic Hand Butter:

Unwrap the bar from it’s natural cellophane wrapper and rub it between your hands.  The heat from your hands will start to melt the product.

You can either use a small amount for a quick top up or melt loads onto your hands and give them a good massage.  You could even leave it on for half an hour or so to really get to grips with dry, parched skin.  This hand mask type treatment once a week will really make a difference to the condition of the skin of your hands.

If your hands are really suffering you could always put loads on and then pop some cotton gloves on and let it sink in overnight.

I like to use a medium amount of it at night so that it nourishes my skin while I sleep.

Miscellaneous facts about Organic Hand Butter:

Each Organic Hand Butter weighs approx 60g and one bar will last for simply ages!

Organic hand butter will melt when it comes into contact with your skin.  For this reason keep away from heat sources and don’t keep it on a sunny window sill or in direct sun.

The organic hand butter comes wrapped in natural, biodegradable cellophane.  It will live quite happily in there but you  might want to transfer it to a pot or tin for ease of use.

This WILL take a while to sink into your skin.  Being a natural product with no alcohol or water element it will stay around while the oils and butters work their way into your skin.  For this reason don’t put it on then put a silk shirt on or anything that will get oily hand marks on.  Common sense but it can happen!

This product will only be available online or from the studio at events held there.  It won’t be available in any of the outlets.

Due to their very melty nature hand butters are not made between June and October as they just won’t set as it’s too warm in the studio.

    wow, what a little gem this is! I have bad allergies & my hands get very sore. I already use the amazing skin balm to help but the organic hand butter is also amazing. It has greatly healed my sore hands in a week. It has helped take the dryness out of them. I use it during the day & also at night with cotton gloves. It is a must have !

    I stumbled across this in a surprise bag, and goodness me it’s fabulous. Truly decadent and such a treat to use. I prefer to use it just before bed as it takes a while to sink in and work it’s magic. My hands are left feeling soft and smooth and the chocolate orange scent is a bonus! This has become one of my must have’s 🙂
