      NS Protective Hand Cream is formulated synergistically with natural active ingredients and without petroleum-based ingredients. The skin recognises the Natural Moisturising Factors (NMF) and readily absorbs the cream, providing superior moisturisation. Petroleum based products simply coat the skin forming an occlusive barrier.

      NS Protective Hand Cream contains a high percentage of dimethicone (3%) which forms a non-greasy protective barrier to protect hands, even whilst washing. NS Protective Hand Cream is ideal for people with very sensitive skin who need extra protection and repair. NS is Natural Dermatology

       Phenoxyethanol is an ingredient used to ensure that there is a robust preservative system at work in our NS products. Phenoxyethanol ensures that no bacteria, fungus or mould gets into our products, which can in turn and negatively affect your skin. It is critical that our products are 100% safe for you to use and so an effective preservative system is essential, especially for NS products because they contain a high percentage of highly active ingredients.  Phenoxyethanol is used at low levels in our products (it is only ever used at less than 1%). Some preservatives need to be used at higher levels, which can adversely affect the skin, while some natural preservative systems can be prohibitively expensive, which would make our products unaffordable. Plunkett’s uses Phenoxyethanol in NS products to achieve an effective and affordable preservative system, so that our products have a 3-year shelf life, and do not require refrigeration. NS products give you peace of mind because our products are safe to use.

      out of all of your products that I have used so fare, this has to be my favorite, it do's what you say it do's . Because of all the hand sanitizer we all have to use at the moment I have developed an allege to hand sanitizer which makes my hands very itchy . Your hand cream seems to give my hands a protective coating .stops the itching and makes them feel soft and smoother. I really love it and will be buying some more when this tube runs out.
