If you find your hands chapped, scalded, rough and sore – definitely not the smooth hands you need for knitting, crocheting, spinning - then No Snag Hand Cream is for you! Not just for knitters - all fibre artists need smooth hands. This wonderful cream is made by Sabine from Curiouser and Curiouser, and this is what she says about it:
"I've been teaching a Make Your Own Lotions And Potions course for many years, but had never attempted to make a cream specially for extremely dry and chapped hands. So I set out on a bit of a quest to create one that would protect my hands from the ravages of hot water and harsh detergents and keep them smooth and soft for crafting.
For No Snag I don't use any chemical nasties or animal-derived ingredients and the cream is tested only on crafty hands. It is fast absorbed and doesn't leave a greasy sheen. No Snag is also very economical - a little goes a long way - and it smells nice. The subtle vanilla scent is a little flowery and quite "clean". It is not overpowering and doesn't linger too long, either.
No Snag is not just a hand cream - because of its simple formula it can be used for rough heels, as a facial moisturiser for very dry skin, body butter or baby cream. The cream contains water, rose water, a blend of vegetable oils, shea butter, plant-based emulsifiers, wheatgerm oil, cocoa butter, tincture of benzoine and a blend of pure essential oils."
