Pure Lakes Shea Butter Dry Skin Balm
Produced a stone's throw away from us by a small, family-owned company, this Pure Lakes Dry Skin Balm is a firm favourite of ours, particularly in the winter months when the harsh elements can dry out the exposed skin on our hands. Containing a whole load of organic and moisturising ingredients, this rich and easily absorbed formula is a must have for hands and other areas of dry skin. Simply warm a small amount between your fingers and gently massage onto clean skin once or twice a day.
I love to use this at the end of the day, just before bed, leaving those oils and butters to soak into my skin overnight.

We know that it can be a complicated task to understand what you're putting on your skin so we've tried to make things a little easier for you. Firstly, ingredients are always listed in order of volume (until you get to anything anything with less than 1% volume, which can be listed in any order)
See some Latin names in the ingredients? They're used for plant-based ingredients, so it's not always a bad thing to see long, complicated names on the label. For example, Tocopherol is the Latin name for Vitamin E which is an antioxidant used to stop cosmetics containing essential oils from spoiling. See? Not scary!
