This listing is for the Largest (8-oz) bottle of Happy Hands, in my juicy, slightly spicy fragrance I call "Cinnamon Cider".
How "Happy Hands" Happened
I originally formulated Happy Hands for myself, after I tried -- and failed! -- to find a commercial product that worked for me.
Up here in the high mountain desert, dry hands are a year-round problem. I needed a creamy lotion that would deeply moisturize & soften my hands, but absorb quickly and NOT leave a greasy residue on my hands that would transfer to my knitting. And of course, it had to smell wonderful!
It took me a year to work out this formula: a lotion that is so very thick and creamy so you only need a small dollop, quickly absorbed, nourishing and moisturizing with NO greasy residue; and glossy pure white, because I don't want to add any artificial colors to my products.
Once I got the exact formula & feel that I wanted, I discovered that all my friends wanted Happy Hands, too ... So I've decided to try it out in my Etsy store.
Why "Happy Hands" Work So Well
~ Goat’s milk is naturally high in protein, triglycerides, and loaded with absorbable Vitamins A, B6, B12 and E ... making it an excellent natural moisturizer that helps hydrate and nourish your skin.
~ Bee's honey has been used in skin products since ancient times, because it is a natural antioxidant and anti-inflammatory.
~ Shea butter comes from the nut of the African karite tree, and is an extremely therapeutic emollient, helping to heal cracked and damaged skin.
Cinnamon Cider Fragrance
I wish we had scratch-n-sniff screens! "Cinnamon Cider" is a wonderfully fresh and fruity fragrance, combining the delicious scent of crisp, juicy apples, lightly spiked with cinnamon and nutmeg.
I used pure cosmetic-grade fragrance oils (all phthalate-free) to create this scent. Because my lotion base absorbs quickly into your skin, you can enjoy the long-lasting fragrance, but the scent will NOT transfer to your fiber handiworks.
