If hand cream wasn’t in your self-care routine already, we’re sure it is now; hand cream has become an absolutely essential item in these scary Covid-19 times (especially now it’s winter). Apparently, the average person washes their hands up to 22 times a day and that’s not including the countless, daily antibacterial gel applications. If you’re reading this looking at your hands in shame, don’t worry, we've just discovered Nursem.
Nursem was created by an NHS nurse who had contracted dermatitis from excessive hand washing at work and has since become a saviour for hardworking hands.
Caring Skin Fix is a dream for super parched skin. Vegan and cruelty-free, this product has a thicker consistency so it’s great to use as an overnight treatment, as well on problem patches of skin. Avocado oil, shea butter and glycerin protect the natural skin barrier, whilst pharmaceutical-grade colloidal oatmeal works to soothe redness and irritation.
Hyaluronic acid and pro-vitamin B5 regenerate the skin, whilst allantoin fuel’s the skin's natural ability to repair quickly.
If a thicker buttery cream is too much then Nursem’s cruelty-free Caring Hand Cream is the one for you. It is the latest addition to the lineup and contains no essential oils or fragrances, which make it the perfect cream for sensitive skin.
Medical grade manuka honey and white willow extract help soothe inflammation and soreness, along with allantoin and pro-vitamin B5 which condition, and plant oils and glycerin that protect the skin. The great thing about both of these products is that they are rapidly absorbed into the skin and the hydration is instant - there's no waiting around.
Not only will they soothe sore skin, but purchasing them will actually soothe your soul (which I think we can all agree has taken a bit of a battering of late). For every product purchased, Nursem gives a month's worth of products to a nurse or midwife.
The Nursem promise has already donated to over 119,000 NHS staff all over the country, which definitely gives a new definition to the term hero product.
