The best hand cream for dry skin is a bit of enigma in the selfcare industry. There are so many consumers who want to find a cream that ticks all their must-have boxes. And so many manufacturers that claim that they have the ultimate product. Yet there are still people who haven’t found one that really does the trick.
The South African skincare market is expected to grow at a CAGR of 7.4% in the next five years. And the growth of the middle class and increased spending power across many socio-economic groups in the country. The demand for affordable, but reliable quality skincare products has increased. This is to fulfil the requirements of different ethnic groups and meet the demand for natural ingredients.
The key takeout here is that there are more and more people on the lookout for formulations with natural ingredients. This makes a lot of sense to us, since we have found that the human skin, which is the body’s largest organ, responds much better to ingredients that our bodies know and recognise, rather than chemical formulations that are cheaper to manufacture, but not so kind to the skin.
As such, when it comes to bath and body moisturisers, we always recommend that people look out for a few important ingredients. This includes mango seed butter, wheat germ oil, and avocado oil.
Mango seed butter
Mango seed butter is a rich fat that comes from the seeds inside the pits of the mango fruit. Hand creams that contain this miracle ingredient benefit from high levels of vitamins A, C, and E, as well as oleic acid, and stearic acid. In short – it nourishes the skin deeply, and boosts elasticity immensely.
Wheat germ oil
Wheat germ oil has been used as a skin remedy for conditions like eczema for many years. Many people also use it to address general dryness, and diminish the severity of dark spots. It’s chockful of zinc and antioxidants, which means that this natural oil is a great addition to any hand cream.
Avocado oil is not only super healthy as a fat source in a dietary sense, but it also nourishes and moisturises the skin when it’s applied topically in the form of hand creams, etc. The oil contains high levels of potassium and lecithin, as well as vitamin E and oleic acid. The latter plays a vital role in collagen production and helps the skin to heal itself. As such, it’s a lifesaver when it comes to issues to like sun damage and wrinkles.
The best hand cream for dry skin is a formulation that works for your skin type, suits your budget and can be applied on a regular basis for best results. The best way to see if a cream works for you is to try different kinds and keep track of how your hands feel after each use. Opt for natural formulations when you can, and support ethical manufacturers whenever possible.
