Does dry skin leave you with itchy or painful cracked hands? Dry skin is a challenge for a lot of people, for many reasons. Sometimes, washing hands a lot strips the hands of moisture. Often, super hot or cold weather can turn hands into less than glowing visions of what they should be.
Whatever the cause, there’s something that can be done to keep hands feeling good while animals stay safe. There are plenty of vegan and cruelty-free hand creams that you can use to make itchiness and pain go away, and have soft pretty hands.
We’ve put together a list of some of the top vegan and cruelty-free hand creams. We’re interested in making sure you have great vegan products to use, but we’re also concerned about your good health so we made sure that each of the creams on our list are made with natural and organic ingredients. The following are the vegan and cruelty-free hand creams we thought you should know about.
Avalon Organics Hand and Body Lotion contains a powerful blend of botanical extracts to rejuvenate irritated and sore hands. It’s a light formula that you can use every day without having to deal with greasiness as you’re going about your business. Even though it’s light, this hand lotion is an effective product that seeps deep into the skin to moisturize and restore. Avalon Organics products are priced well and they’re available at many health stores.
Jurlique is another company offering affordable products made with powerful plant essences. The company’s hydrating Rose Hand Cream is crafted with ingredients that are sustainable, mostly certified organic, and biodynamic. This hand cream is extremely rich and heavy, so use a little to cover both your hands. It’s best if you wait a minute or two for the cream to soak in before you touch things that you don’t want to get oily. You can find Jurlique Rose Hand Cream at Sephora stores.
Desert Essence has a nice line of Organic Hand Creams that can also double as body lotions. These creams are not creams in the usual sense. They’re light formulations that are perfect for moderately chapped hands, not for hands that have severe eczema or conditions where a thick balm would be best. Dessert Essence Organic Hand Creams come in many fragrances and they’re usually available for less than $10. They too can be found at many health markets.
All of these vegan and cruelty-free hand creams can also be purchased online, on the companies’ websites.
