3. Nursem Caring Hand Cream - Unfragranced

This unfragranced Caring Hand Cream has been specially developed for those who struggle with highly reactive, irritated skin. Formulated without essential oils and fragrances, the cream is made from naturally derived ingredients that work to protect and soothe sore and dry hands.

Carefully blended with manuka honey and white willow extract along with a rich blend of pro vitamin B5 and allantoin, the cream works to immediately moisturise your skin. The addition of plant oils and glycerin restores your skin's protective barrier to help strengthen your skin and allow it to retain hydration. 

The formula is consultant dermatologist approved and cruelty-free, plus, when you buy Nursem products you can feel great about giving back through the brand's 'Nursem Promise.' Nurses wash their hands around 55 times daily to help protect the health of their patients and themselves. As you can imagine, this can leave their skin extremely dry, sore, and cracked. The Nursem Promise means that with every product purchased, Nursem donates a month’s worth of hand cream to a nurse or midwife to help soothe and protect their hands.

4. OSKIA & Temperley Skin Smoothing LOVE Candle

A 100% cruelty-free brand, OSKIA has been a long-term favourite choice of our Face the Future customers when it comes to skincare that is both kind to skin and kind to our planet. 

Using 98% naturally-derived, bio-identical ingredients, OSKIA have promised to continue their search for the perfect, all-natural alternative for the 2% that makes up the preservatives in their products (which are needed to ensure to keep the natural ingredients stable and help them to survive for a number of months without growing harmful bacteria and moulds). 

Light your home and treat your mind and body in one with OSKIA's LOVE Massage Candle that combines a limited-edition Temperley London print, combined with OSKIA's iconic and award-winning candle formula, featuring a new signature scent. The candle was created in support of the charity Women for Women International - a non-profit organisation that provides moral and practical support to female survivors of war, and 10% of all proceeds from the candle are donated to the charity. 

Once lit, this natural massage and body candle gently melts the wax to the optimal temperature to allow you to pour the warming formula straight onto your skin and enjoy a soothing massage. Created with ingredients like soybean, coconut oil, and beeswax, and scented with rose, amyris, patchouli, cedarwood, sandalwood and guaiacwood, the formula is an infusion of beautiful floral notes mixed with deeper, sensual notes to evoke a sense of tranquility and wellbeing.
