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 of New Mexico, 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.

Because my cream base absorbs quickly into your skin, you can enjoy the long-lasting fragrance, but the scent will NOT transfer to your fiber or craft handiwork.

Why "Happy Hands" Work So Well

♥ Shea butter is made from the nut of the African karité tree, called "women's gold" because of the vital income its harvest provides the women of Africa. Shea butter is an excellent natural moisturizer and therapeutic emollient, with Vitamins A & E helping to heal dry, cracked and damaged skin.

♥ Sunflower oil is pressed from black sunflower seeds, a natural emollient also high in Vitamin E that helps retain moisture in the skin.

♥ The juice of the succulent Aloe Vera plant has been used for centuries to rejuvenate, heal & soothe skin.

♥ My Happy Hands formula contains NO parabens, NO mineral oil, and NO coloring agents of any kind.

♥ I use only natural essential oils and pure cosmetic-grade fragrance oils (all phthalate-free) to create my scents.

♥ I bottle my hand cream in crystal-clear, BPA-free bottles.
