What's in a good hand cream? Above all, ingredients which bind and retain moisture in the skin. In technical terms: Glycerin and urea (a natural component of our skin). A cream with urea is ideal for very dry hands. Olive oil and shea butter, for example, provide fatty acids which have a skin-calming and regenerating effect.

Did you know? Even with hand creams, there is a difference between day and night care. During the day, you should use creams which are rapidly absorbed. In the daytime, try our Soft in Seconds Hand Cream (link to Soft in Seconds Hand Cream) with lemon verbena and avocado butter. It is rapidly absorbed and provides intensive care.

Rich hand creams are ideal for nighttime use. They protect better because their lipid film - which would be bothersome during the day - is absorbed slowly at night. Tip: To intensify the nourishing effect, put on cotton gloves.
The Kneipp Almond Blossom Hand Cream "Soft Skin" is ideal for nighttime use. Its richness provides long-lasting protection against drying out.
