Formulated with a very high concentration of 25% shea butter to provide intense nourishing care, it forms a protective film for skin that is very dry or uncomfortable due to environmental aggressions (cold, air conditioning). With its ultra-rich texture, this balm melts into the hands and nails from the moment it is applied and massaged in. Enriched with allantoin, it helps to immediately soothe the skin, bringing comfort and softness. Used daily, it helps to protect hands from dryness. There are two ways to use the Shea Intensive Hand Balm. For daily use: warm a generous amount of balm between the hands, then gently massage into the palms, back of the hands, nails and cuticles (twice a day). As an intensive mask: apply a thick layer to the hands and leave on for 10 minutes to intensely nourish the skin, then massage in any excess (twice a week). Shea butter is a natural beauty balm, used by women in Sub-Saharan Africa. Since the 1980’s, L’OCCITANE has set up a sustainable and fair trade partnership with the women in Burkina Faso who produce it. To perpetuate this story with the women of this country, the L'OCCITANE Foundation gets involved for women's entrepreneurship supporting literacy, training and microcredit programs, as well as the development of companies created by women.

We’d only make an exception to our Provence-only rule for a very special ingredient - the inimitable Shea Butter. Used for centuries by Sub-Saharan African women to nourish and protect skin and hair, Shea Butter is an ideal beauty ingredient. We work with several thousand women in Burkina Faso to develop a sustainable, fair trade Shea Butter supply chain. So you can feel good about feeling good.

  • Smells like nappy cream/baby wipes!

    Got given this for Christmas. This is nourishing on the hands but just can’t get past the nappy cream/baby wipe smell!

  • Can't believe this isn't more popular!

    I've tried several hand creams in the past of various brands, including other hand creams offered by L'Occitane but only this one does the trick! Over the past few years I've suffered from moderately dry hands as a result of the nature of my work which requires me to wash my hands frequently. One use of this on my hands and less than an hour later all the dryness has healed! It's not temporary healing either which I feel most hand creams do (i.e. require constant use). I also tried it on a dry bumpy patch of skin on my arm and overnight it did the trick! No more flakiness and the bumps significantly reduced. Overall, so happy with this product and wish I'd gotten the larger volume instead!
