As we all continue to take the advice of health specialists by washing our hands repeatedly during this difficult time, most of us will be prone to very dry hands which can lead to cracked skin. Instead of looking to large businesses at a time where small businesses need every ounce of help they can get, I have put together a list of independent brands who I support, love and have purchased from in the past who make their own handmade products, perfect for keeping hands moisturised and homes clean.
Join Vitamin Sea Vegan Soap Bar
Join's Vitamin Sea vegan soap bar is handcrafted in the UK. It is a triple milled blend of natural seaweed and shea butter. The invigorating seaweed has a fresh, salty fragrance and the 100% vegetable based shea butter leaves skin feeling moisturised. A substantial 200g bar wrapped in a minimal, monochrome recycled design, this soap is the perfect sustainable product for your kitchen sink or bathroom. SHOP

Made with extracts of plants, grasses, seaweed and algae to moisturise and protect. This hand cream is made without GM ingredients, SLS, silicones, parabens, mineral oils, artificial colours or fragrances and is certified Organic and vegan. Top notes of marjoram. Middle notes of palmarosa & rosemary. Base notes of vetiver & lavender. SHOP
TGC206 Tulip Hand Cream
TGC206 tulip is a perfumed organic hand cream — crafted with pure vegetable lipids. The fragrance smells like a freshly harvested bouquet of tulips: Still cool from outdoors, with close-fitting petals and watery stalks. The formula is created around a selection of vegetable ingredients ranging from shea butter, aloe vera leaf juice to rapeseed, and olive and coconut oils. Free from petroleum products, parabens and colour. Supplied in a convenient, 50 ml, glossy aluminium tube that is fully recyclable. SHOP

Earl of East Onsen Hand Balm
Earl of East's Onsen hand balm is an uplifting blend of peppermint, eucalyptus and mandarin.
