The iconic Hemp Hand Protector by The Body Shop gets a bold NEW limited-edition packaging re-design by one of the world’s most renowned street artists – EINE. Using EINE’s famous typography, the Hemp Hand Protector communicates the positive and powerful message CHANGE.
The Body Shop has been using hemp since 1992, and since its launch in 1998 the Hemp Hand Protector has gained a cult beauty following for giving hands an intense moisture hit. Hemp seeds contain a high level of essential fatty acids and with the cold-pressed oil of 950 hemp seeds crammed into every 100ml tube, this ultra efficacious formula helps soften and nourish the hardiest of hands. Today it’s one of our bestselling products across the globe. In fact, one is sold every 9 seconds* !
Rs 850 for 100 ml
The Hemp Hand Protector is an iconic product and has been around for ages. It is an oil-based hand cream and if you have very dry hands, this cream is a savior. It is a heavy duty moisturizer so the texture is quite thick and does not absorb into the skin easily. A little goes a long way and you need to massage for about 3-4 minutes for the cream to sink in properly but it will still leave a creamy film on top . Because of how thick it is, I would advise you to apply the cream before going to bed so you don’t feel too greasy or icky. You will love how soft and smooth your hands will feel in the morning. All of The Body Shop’s products smell incredible but Hemp is not really my favorite fragrance. It is a slightly minty and medicinal smell which is not that great but not unbearable either. In summer, it might be too heavy but if you have dry hands or if you are in an AC environment all day or if you live in a cold place, it is a great product to have. The cream has a strong healing effect and takes care of dry, chapped hands easily. One application means relief for nearly 24 hours.
I would recommend all of you to try the Hemp Hand Protector because not only will you protect your hands but by buying the Limited Edition packaging, you will also do your bit to protect our planet. For every Limited-Edition Hemp Hand Protector purchased, £1.50 will be donated to The Body Shop Foundation, the charitable arm of The Body Shop International. Your donation will support the Foundation’s goal of raising £300,000 to protect and enrich the planet, the oceans or animals and people. And how the money is split is up to you as every purchase you make gives you the ability to vote for the cause closest to your heart. The power to make a positive difference really is in your hands.
