Product description

Best if you want to: Pamper your hard-working hands and feet with rich hydration from an intensive moisturizing treatment with skin softening ximenia oil from Africa that will leave skin feeling soft, supple and subtly scented with our traditional Spa Wisdom™ Africa fragrance. Particularly effective on hardworking hands and feet or any very dry areas such as elbows and knees.

Best for: all skin types, particularly those with very dry skin

How it works:
  • Lanolin is one of nature's richest moisturizers and is readily absorbed, so it provides good protection for rough, dry skin.
  • Community Trade shea butter and Community Trade organic honey moisturize and soften skin.
  • Organic Community Trade beeswax moisturizes and conditions skin while acting as a barrier to help seal in moisture.
  • Ximenia, an oil extracted from the ximenia tree native to Africa, helps soften the skin.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by Excellent Hand and Foot Cream! This product was an excellent value as well as outstanding Foot and Hand cream! Money well spent. My skin, once dry, now smooth and supple. I am happy with this purchase, indeed! January 27, 2016
    Rated 1 out of 5 by No moisturizing effect. I know the ingredients in this cream is different. It does not moisturize my skin like it used to. My hands stay dry after using it. It's too thick and the jars are hard to open and impossible to close. I have given up on the fight. I walk by those 2 jars on my dresser everyday trying to decide if I should toss it or return it. Very very disappointed. Not my first purchase. I have been a loyal customer for over 20 years. January 24, 2016
    Rated 4 out of 5 by good product in a cute jar I ordered the Spa Wisdom™ Africa Honey & Beeswax Hand and Foot Butter online and all I could think of was that it comes in a cute jar and wanted to give it a shot.On receiving it I had a tough time opening the jar. Although its both a hand and a foot cream I wanted it to be a hand cream but by the time I close the jar after applying all the moisture from my hand is wiped out. I even broke a finger nail trying to do so, The product is good.It does not stay for a long time but love the fragrance. I have given 4 stars just for how difficult opening the jar is.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by VERY SOOTHING! This hand and foot butter is very rich and creamy -- only have to use a tiny bit and it immediately soothes my parched dry rough hands. Nice clean smell too. The hardware on the packaging is ridiculous and hard to manage. Within an hour of being in my house I disassembled it and removed the metal parts and tossed them in the trash! Just replace the lid (with the seal) and wrap entire jar with a big thick flat rubberband (like the one that comes at the base of broccoli). Nice tight closure and none of that wire clasp business to break your nails. December 8, 2015

    Paraben free?

    I found this product using the paraben free search, but looking at the ingredients it looks like it does have parabens. So is this a paraben free product?

    • Beeswax

      Our Community Trade honey and beeswax suppliers use hives hand made from bark, hung high in the forests, to collect our Community Trade honey. To the bees these are penthouses hung high in the trees. The honey they make is some of the finest in the world which provides deep and penetrating moisture in makeup and skincare products, as the bees visit flowers unspoiled by pollution or pesticides.

    • Honey

      We source our Community Trade honey from the UNESCO Sheka Forest Biosphere Reserve in the southern region of Ethiopia, where African bees distil the nectar of rainforest flowers to create a distinctive floral honey. To collect this precious honey, we work with the ‘bee whisperers’ of Beza Mar, a group dedicated to improving the livelihood of Ethiopian beekeeping communities and maintaining their traditional, natural way of working with bees. Our Community Trade honey skin and hair care products aids miniaturization for soft, smooth skin and hair.

    • Shea

      Our Community Trade shea butter is hand-crafted in Ghana by the Tungteiya Shea Butter Association is made up of over 475 women in 11 villages around Tamale, northern Ghana. Each woman takes two days to carefully produce the 25kg of butter; the rich kernels of 28 shea nuts are packed into every ultra-moisturizing Shea Body Butter. Our trade partnership with the Tungteiya Association has provided them with income and money to fund water pipes, access medial care and better housing and education. They ultra-nourishing shea butter we receive from them makes up our highly-nourishing, best-selling Shea bath & body range.
