Cancer treatments such as chemotherapy, radiotherapy and cancer drugs save lives, but unfortunately they can also make the skin and nails more susceptible to problems such as dryness, changes to the nails, sores, inflammation and rashes.
Our therapeutic hand and nail creams have been developed by our own clinical aromatherapists with the aim of tackling some of the side effects associated with cancer and its various treatments mentioned above.
How do they work?
Essential oils can be very effective when inhaled through the nasal passageways, helping to manage symptoms associated with cancer treatments - whether that be stress, anxiety, respiratory conditions, circulation problems, inflamed skin or insomnia.
Our hand and nail creams are ideal for locking in moisture, as well as treating dry, chapped or sensitive skin, and damaged nails. Simply choose a blend that’s most suited to your skin, and apply as and when needed.
Directions for use: Apply to the hands, and massage into nails
How to choose the right blend for you:
Rose and Benzoin - Great for treating chapped and inflamed skin, as well as healing wounds and warming circulation. Can also help to aid depression and alleviate anxiety, palpitations and help those suffering loss.
Plai Black Pepper- Contains anti-inflammatory properties, whilst aiding in pain relief and relaxation
All of our hand creams contain olive oil, which is perfect for treating chapped skin as it locks in moisture and is also good for those with sensitive skin.
The macadamia oil used is also great for treating dry areas, whilst protecting against wind and weather, and with the addition of thistle oil and rosehips, our creams can also help increase circulation and promote cell and tissue regeneration.
Both of our hand and nail creams are 100% free from paraben, aluminium, sodium laurel sulphate, mineral oil, and paraffin.
NOTE: These products have been carefully developed through many years’ experience of helping with symptom management in those living with cancer. As a result, our products are suitable for everyone - not just cancer sufferers.
